It was almost too good to be true. After multiple sources, like The Daily Mail, reported that Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz signed on for a sequel to their 2006 holiday classic, The Holiday, Nancy Meyer cleared the air. In an Instagram post, she said that it was all just a rumor and that the news wasn't true.

"So many DM’s about this - sorry but it’s not true," she wrote, breaking hearts all over the world.

"The plan is to start filming next year. The main talent are all signed up," a source close to the production team told The Sun before Meyers clear the air. "It's one of the most successful movies of its kind and still enjoyed every year by millions of fans around the world - it makes perfect sense to revisit those characters and find out what became of their lives after they hooked up. It'll be funny, poignant, and heartwarming - just what everyone wants for Christmas."

Diaz recently announced that she was coming out of retirement to return to the big screen. After taking time away from Hollywood (and washing her face) and giving birth to daughter Raddix, Diaz shared that she'll star alongside Jamie Foxx for Back In Action, a Netflix film. Nancy Meyers even celebrated the news with an Instagram post. The last movie Diaz starred in was 2014's Annie
