Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth is set to join Danny DeVito and Matthew Broderick in Regency Enterprises’ holiday comedy “Deck the Halls.”
John Whitesell is directing the pic, which starts shooting May 29 in Vancouver. Michael Costigan is producing. A Nov. 22 release has already been slotted.
“Deck the Halls,” previously known as “All Lit Up,” centers on two neighbors (DeVito, Broderick) in a small New England town who go to war when one decides to decorate his house for Christmas in an effort to be visible from space. Chenoweth will star as the wife of DeVito’s character.
Matt Corman and Chris Ord penned the original draft of the screenplay, with Don Rhymer also turning in a version.
Chenoweth currently stars in the Columbia comedy “RV.” Since segueing from her career on Broadway, thesp starred in the most recent season of “The West Wing” and has been working on back-to-back feature projects, Ryan Murphy’s “Running With Scissors” and Marc Forster’s “Stranger Than Fiction.”
