The film will be released on 12 May 2023

The upcoming romance is a remake of the 2016 German film, SMS für Dich, which follows a young woman who, after tragically losing her fiancé, starts to send texts to his old phone. It turns out that the number has been reassigned to a new person, a man who is also suffering from a similar heartbreak.

The official synopsis for the film reads: "What if a random text message led to the love of your life? Mira Ray, dealing with the loss of her fiancé, sends a series of romantic texts to his old cell phone number… not realizing the number was reassigned to Rob Burns’ new work phone.

"A journalist, Rob is captivated by the honesty in the beautifully confessional texts. When he’s assigned to write a profile of megastar Celine Dion (playing herself in her first film role), he enlists her help in figuring out how to meet Mira in person … and win her heart."

The release date isn't the only amendment that has been made regarding the new movie as the title has changed twice.

The film was originally titled Text For You before the name was changed to It's All Coming Back to Me, referencing Jim Steinman's power ballad, which Celine Dion released a rendition of in 1996.
