Three Jews walk into a Christmas movie…
This actually isn’t a joke. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen have announced that they are working on an “Untitled Xmas Comedy,” directed by Jonathan Levine.
Very very happy to announce that I’m gonna be working again with @jonathanalevine and @Sethrogen. This one’s gonna be a good one.. ampmdash; Joseph Gordon-Levitt (@hitRECordJoe) February 11, 2014
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the most Jewish of Christmas films will tell the heartwarming tale of three childhood best friends who reunite in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve.
The third lead role has yet to be cast, but fingers crossed for another member of the tribe!
