Sissy Spacek and Mary Steenburgen are joining the holiday romantic comedy “Four Christmases” for New Line and Spyglass Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.
Reese Witherspoon, Vince Vaughn Kristin Chenoweth and Robert Duvall star in the film which revolves around a newly married couple who decide to brave visits to all sets of their parents for the Christmas holiday — despite the scars each has from being raised in broken homes.
Spacek will play the slightly spacey, New Age mother of Brad (Vaughn). Steenburgen will play the chameleonlike mother of Kate (Witherspoon), whose personality changes depending on whom she’s married to or dating. Chenoweth plays Kate’s controlling, type-A sister and Duvall plays Brad’s gruff father.
Director Seth Gordon will helm the project using a script by writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore. The film is slated for release during next year’s holiday season.
