Jessica Chastain & Octavia Spencer Reteam For Christmas Comedy

Jessica will reteam with her “The Help” co-star Octavia Spencer for an untitled comedy at Universal. Chastain herself teamed with Kelly Carmichael (producer of “The Nanny Diaries,” “Nine,” and “My Week With Marilyn“) to write the treatment which will be turned into a script by Peter Chiarelli (“The Proposal,” “Now You See Me 2,” the upcoming “Crazy Rich Asians“). The story is said to be in the vein of the great “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” and will follow two women trying to make it home for Christmas, according to THR.

No words yet on director or starting of principal photography.
