Bridesmaids and Ghostbusters director Paul Feig has signed on to direct Universal Pictures’ Last Christmas, which has been scripted by Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility) and playwright Bryony Kimmings (A Pacifict’s Guide to the War on Cancer).
Deadline reports that plot details for Last Christmas are being kept under wraps, but the film is said to be a holiday romance taking place in London. In addition to writing, Thompson is also serving as producer alongside David Livingstone (Judy).
Since his last big screen offering Ghostbusters: Answer the Call, Feig has helmed the TV movie Girls Code, while his next feature film – the thriller A Simple Favor starring Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick – is set for release this September. Watch the trailer here.
