Ryan Reynolds and Anne Hathaway have been offered the lead roles in the upcoming holiday comedy THE FIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS. The film, which Shawn Levy is producing for Fox, centers on a couple that break up right before the holidays, but decide to pretend to stay together through their family visists, to make it easier on everyone. I’m assuming with all the people involved… the story ends with hilarious results. The project, which was set up as a pitch in 2010, is prepping for a 2011 start, and a holiday 2012 release.
Reynolds and Hathaway are repped by CAA. Hathaway is also repped by Management 360.
