Fox has picked up a brand new comedy pitch to get into the spirit of the holiday season. Variety is reporting that Fox has bought the comedy pitch The Fight Before Christmas from screenwriter Adam Sztykiel.

Sztykiel, who wrote the upcoming comedy Due Date that arrives in theaters November 5, is setting up the project with director/producer Shawn Levy through his 21 Laps production company. It wasn't quite clear if Levy would direct the film as of yet.

Not much is known about the story, but it was said to be a family comedy. No production schedule was given for the film. Sztykiel is also rewriting the Lionsgate dating comedy The Game.
