The holiday season may be over but it is clearly still on everyone’s mind as we can confirm that Brian Sawyer & Gregg Rossen’s spec GUESS WHO’S COMING TO CHRISTMAS is now in six territories and more on the way! The project has been pitched as a three picture trilogy.
A middle-class suburban mixed race father (think The Rock or Ice Cube) finds his conservative world turned upside down when his daughter comes back from college with her new fiance… hip-hop star, Killer B (think O’Shea Jackson). In the vein of Meet the Parents, Father of the Bride, and Daddy’s Home.
The writing team previously set up their action-comedy spec The Met Gala Heist at New Line Cinema and are executive producers on Pez, a film based on the iconic candy dispensers penned by Cameron Fay.
We can confirm that the script is officially into multiple territories now, including:
Rickard Pictures into New Line Cinema
Jerry Bruckheimer Films into Paramount Pictures
Vinson Films into Skydance Productions, Sony Pictures and Screen Gems
Gulfstream Pictures into Warner Bros. and Lionsgate
Will Packer Productions into Universal Pictures
Mayhem Pictures into Walt Disney Studios, MGM Studios and CBS Films
