Anne Fletcher has come on board to direct THE FIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS, Fox’s new family comedy written by Adam Sztykiel. Bradley Cooper, Ryan Reynolds and Anne Hathaway have all been circling the project at one point or another. 21 laps is producing the pic, which involves a couple that breaks up right before the holidays, but decide to pretend to stay together through their family visists, to make it easier on everyone. Fletcher has a strong romantic comedy background, having directed “The Proposal” and “27 Dresses”. She’s currently in development on several projects, including “My Mother’s Curse” and “Enchanted 2”. Her experience in the genre and involvement with this project should guarantee the pic having a happy new year.
