There are only 331 more filming days until Christmas and festive caper Let It Snow – once known as The Most Wonderful Time – is gathering cast members like Santa gathering elves. The latest to join the jamboree are Olivia Wilde, Anthony Mackie, John Goodman, Ed Helms, June Squibb and Marisa Tomei.

That handful (if you’re The Princess Bride’s six-fingered man) will be heading to snowy Pittsburgh to join the previously cast Diane Keaton, Amanda Seyfried and Alan Arkin in a storyline that sounds a little like the final third of Planes, Trains & Automobiles, only without all the travel and not set at Thanksgiving.

As an extended family get together for the holidays, everything that can go wrong does go wrong in (hopefully) hilarious ways until, according to the synopsis, “moments of life transition [unfold] for each of them as they realise that a house filled with love and laughter always makes the season bright”. Hmm.

No word on who these new cast members will be playing, but we do know that Jessie Nelson (I Am Sam) is directing from a script by Steven ‘Stepmom’ Rogers.

Interestingly, be-Oscar’ed music luminary T Bone Burnett is putting together the soundtrack on this one. Expect the bluesiest ever version of ‘Let It Snow’ to feature.
