CBS Films has cast a holiday comedy, tentatively titled “Let It Snow,” with Alan Arkin, John Goodman, Ed Helms, Diane Keaton, Anthony Mackie, Amanda Seyfried, June Squibb, Marisa Tomei and Olivia Wilde.

CBS Films is planning a Nov. 13 release with Lionsgate handling distribution under its recently launched partnership. 

The film has started shooting in Pittsburgh and will also star Jake Lacy, Alex Borstein and Jon Tenney. Jessie Nelson (“I Am Sam”) is directing from a screenplay by Steven Rogers (“P.S. I Love You”).

Groundswell’s Michael London and Janice Williams are joining Nelson in producing the film. Exec producers are Imagine Entertainment, Keaton, Steven Rogers and Ted Gidlow.

T Bone Burnett is the film’s executive music producer and is producing its soundtrack.

The story follows the exasperated members of an extended family as they attempt to gather for their annual holiday celebration.

The project had formerly been titled “The Most Wonderful Time.”

Scott Shooman is overseeing the project for CBS Films.
