New 2015 Christmas Movie Alert: Let it Snow

let_it_snow_ya_novelAccording to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette a new Christmas movie is being filmed in the city for release this coming November. Let is Snow will star pretty much every actor you currently like (or at least I do) including, Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, Marisa Tomei and Olivia Wilde. The official working synopsis of the film states: As Christmas Eve chaos unfolds, so do moments of life transition for each of them as they realize that a house filled with love and laughter always makes the season bright.

The really interesting thing to me is that this movie is actually based on a trio of short stories by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle. I read the young adult novel last Thanksgiving and it’s definitely all about the teenage point of view so I’m wondering why there are just a couple of teenagers and 1 child listed on the cast list so far. Perhaps it’s being very, very, very loosely adapted from the source material? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
