Setting up a holiday flick at its pit, Fox Searchlight Pictures is in progress to bring up a comedy entitled "The Rosenbergs Save Christmas" to the big screen, Variety has learned.
Written by Elisa Bell and Jeff Kline, the project concerns a newly engaged couple from different religious backgrounds who find their mothers' personalities collide when the man's family is forced to host Christmas. No name attached to direct yet, but it is said that Fox Searchlight is developing the movie as a potential starring vehicle for Goldie Hawn.
Taking shape in 1994, Fox Searchlight Pictures is the specialty film division of 20th Century Fox which has a more indie slant than its parent company while also producing and distributing features. It recently released romantic comedy "I Think I Love My Wife", which so far has grossed around $11.8 million.
