THE PROPOSAL Director to Helm THE FIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS for Producer Shawn Levy

     November 14, 2011

Director Anne Fletcher (The Proposal) has been tapped to direct the family-centered comedy The Fight Before Christmas. The pic, which was scripted by Adam Sztykiel (Due Date) is being produced by Shawn Levy. Variety reports that while no casting decisions have been made, they’re considering a number of actors. Chief among the thespians being considered is Bradley Cooper, who is apparently circling the project (as well as every other movie currently in development). No specific plot details are given other than it’s a “family-centered comedy”, though we can safely assume the pic takes place during the holidays.

I wasn’t the biggest fan of The Proposal, and Due Date was a bit of a misfire, so I don’t have the highest of hopes for this one. Fletcher recently helmed the comedy My Mother’s Curse starring Seth Rogen and Barbara Streisand, which is set to hit theaters November 2012.
