Universal’s ‘Let It Snow’ Pushed to 2017

Universal is pushing its adaptation of “Let it Snow” from December 2016 to November 2017.

Based on the anthology of short stories from John Green, Maureen Johnson and Lauren Myracle, the plot weaves together three unexpected romances that take place over the course of one Christmas Eve.

Luke Snellin was recently tapped to direct. “The Fault in Our Stars” screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber revised the screenplay, originally written by Kay Cannon.

Sources didn’t specify the reason for the postponement, other than not wanting Snellin to feel pressured to complete the production on time.

Scott Stuber and Dylan Clark will produce for Universal-based Bluegrass Films. Universal senior VP of production Kristin Lowe and director of development Chloe Yellin will oversee the project for the studio. Alexa Faigen will oversee for Bluegrass Films.

Universal landed the rights to the anthology series in 2014 following the success of Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars,” which was a huge hit for Fox 2000. Fox released “Paper Towns” last summer to moderate returns, and Paramount is currently developing “Looking for Alaska” — both of which are Green properties.
