Chastain & Spencer Team On Xmas Comedy

Their pairing in “The Help” was the best part of that film, now actresses Jessica Chastain and Octavia Spencer are set to reunite for an untitled Christmas comedy at Universal Pictures and Chastain’s own Freckle Films.

The pair will play two women fighting the elements to make it home for Christmas. Chastain wrote the treatment with Kelly Carmichael which Peter Chiarelli (“Crazy Rich Asians”) plans to turn into the full script.

Universal reportedly beat out both Fox and Paramount for the pitch after a bidding war broke out.
