Sissy Spacek and Mary Steenburgen are joining Reese Witherspoon and Vince Vaughn for a season of holiday havoc in Four Christmases.
Kristin Chenoweth and Robert Duvall also star in the New Line romantic comedy, which is slated for release next year.
The story revolves around a newly married couple (Witherspoon and Vaughn) who decide to brave visits to all sets of their parents for the Christmas holiday — despite the scars each has from being raised in broken homes.
Spacek will play the slightly spacey, New Age mother of Brad (Vaughn). Steenburgen will play the chameleonlike mother of Kate (Witherspoon), whose personality changes depending on whom she’s married to or dating.
Chenoweth plays Kate’s controlling, type-A sister and Duvall plays Brad’s gruff father.
Documentary filmmaker Seth Gordon (The King of Kong) directs.
