Weddings have often been prime sources of both drama and comedy for filmmakers, and a new comedy set at nuptials has just started cranking the cameras in London. The People We Hate At The Wedding will star Ben Platt, Kristen Bell and Allison Janney.

Claire Scanlon is directing from a script by Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy Molyneux, adapted from Grant Ginder’s novel of the same name. The People We Hate At The Wedding follows struggling American siblings Alice (Bell) and Paul (Platt), who reluctantly agree to attend the wedding of their estranged, wealthy half-sister in the English countryside alongside their mother, Donna (Janney). Over the course of the wedding week, the family’s many skeletons are wrenched from the closet, and the unlikely reunion gives everyone the motivation to move their own lives forward.

And the cast boasts more than just the central trio: Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Karan Soni, Dustin Milligan, Tony Goldwyn, Isaach De Bankolé, Jorma Taccone and Julian Ovenden are all aboard. Amazon Studios and FilmNation Entertainment are backing this one, which has yet to confirm a release date.
