Masters of Sex star Lizzy Caplan and Workaholics actress Jillian Bell have signed on to star in Sony Pictures' Untitled Christmas Eve Project, which has Seth Rogen, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Anthony Mackie attached to star.
The story follows a group of friends who reunite every year in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve, which becomes disastrous as they all suffer individual crises. Lizzy Caplan is playing Diana, the love interest to Joseph Gordon-Levitt's character, while Jillian Bell plays Betsy, Seth Rogen's wife, who gives her husband and his friends a slew of drugs for their last night out together.
Jonathan Levine is directing from his own script, with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver producing through their Point Grey Productions company. Good Universe's Nathan Kahane and Joseph Drake are executive producing with Ariel Shaffir and Kyle Hunter. Production will begin next week in New York City.
