They may not be Hepburn and Tracy, but Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston are quietly building up a catalog of films. “The Switch,” and two “Horrible Bosses” movies have featured their talents (so too has “The Break-Up“), and now they’re back again for what sounds like another middling movie.
T.J. Miller and Kate McKinnon will join the pair for “Office Christmas Party,” which is exactly what it sounds like. In fact, “The Office” executive producers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky penned this one, along with Laura Solon, which is, obviously, about an office Christmas gathering that gets out of hand.
Will Speck and Josh Gordon (“Blades of Glory,” “The Switch“) are directing this one, which kicks off production this spring. The film is already set for release on December 9th by Paramount, so you can watch it in theaters, and on endless repeats every Christmas, forever. [THR]
