John Green-Maureen Johnson-Lauren Myracle adaptation LET IT SNOW delayed nearly a year.
In a recent rearranging of its upcoming titles, Universal Pictures has moved the adaptation of Let It Snow, based on the short story collection by John Green, Maureen Johnson, and Lauren Myracle, back by almost a year.
The movie will follow three unexpected romances that piece themselves together on Christmas Eve and was originally slated for the same season with a December 9, 2016 release date. The film has been moved to Thanksgiving weekend in 2017– November 22 to be exact.
Though no official reason was given, it’s likely that the studio’s production on the script by Scott Neustadter, Michael H. Weber, and Kay Cannon hasn’t come along as quickly as they’d hoped, prompting the change. The winter romance will face some stiff competition, however: It comes out less than three weeks after Thor: Ragnarok, just 5 days after Justice League Part 1 and 3 weeks before Star Wars Episode VIII. Hopefully, there will be lots of YA fans ready for some superhero counter-programming!
