Love Again will be in North American theaters on May 12, 2023. In this romantic comedy, the Quebec singer stars alongside Priyanka Chopra Jonas (‘Quantico’), Sam Heughan (‘Outlander’) and Russell Tovey (‘Look’).

According to the film’s synopsis, which was initially titled “Text for You” and “It’s All Coming Back to Me,” a young woman tries to ease the pain of her fiancé’s death by sending romantic text messages to her old cell phone number and establishes a connection with the man to whom the number was reassigned.

The 54-year-old singer, who has been on hiatus from her Las Vegas show for several months and has had to cancel touring appearances due to persistent muscle cramps, will also perform songs from the soundtrack of the feature film (“Grace Is Gone”) written and directed by Jim Strouse.

Filming wrapped in early 2021 in London, UK. The story is from the 2016 German film SMS für Dich, which was adapted for American audiences. “Love Again” was originally supposed to be released in February.

The dream of cinema

It’s not the first time that Celine Dion, who starred in 2014’s ‘Operation Muppets’ (Muppets Most Wanted), wants to act in the cinema.

We already mentioned that she would have liked to play the Greek singer Maria Callas, but this project never materialized. She also starred in the 1991 Quebec mini-series Des fleurs sur la neige, which included four episodes that aired on Radio-Canada. She also had a brief appearance on the same antenna on an episode of “La petite vie” in 2002, to which she slipped the slip.
