Get your snow pants on. Universal has set a date for Let It Snow: Friday, December 9, 2016. Currently, it’s the only title bowing that weekend. The pic is based on a short story collection by John Green (The Fault In Our Stars), Maureen Johnson (13 Little Blue Envelopes) and Lauren Myracle (Internet Girls series). The plotline covers three unexpected romances which take place over the course of Christmas Eve. Bluegrass Films’ Scott Stuber (Ted series, Identity Thief) and Dylan Clark (Planet Of The Apes series, Oblivion) will produce the holiday title from Kay Cannon’s screenplay (Pitch Perfect series). Universal has a history for mining gold from holiday-theme pics. Of course, there’s the studio’s uber-hit, Ron Howard’s How The Grinch Stole Christmas ($345.1M), but there is also the 2003 holiday romantic pic Love Actually which only made $60M stateside, but collected a ton of greenback gifts overseas with $247M.
