Allison Janney, Annie Murphy in talks to star in 'The People We Hate At The Wedding'

Oscar winner Allison Janney, Emmy winner Annie Murphy and Golden Globe-nominated actor Ben Platt are in negotiations to feature in the film adaptation of ‘The People We Hate At The Wedding’. The movie is based on Grant Ginder’s novel that is a character-driven wedding comedy that aspires to be a next-generation ‘Four Weddings and a Funeral’.

According to the reports, Emmy winner Claire Scanlon will be directing the movie.

‘Bob’s Burgers’ fame Wendy Molyneux and Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin, known collectively as the Molyneux Sisters, have adapted the Ginder’s book.

The plot follows a dysfunctional family that can’t seem to get along and get it together reluctantly reunites for a family wedding.

As their many skeletons are wrenched from the closet, it turns out to be just what this singular family needs to reconnect.

Janney won the best supporting actress Oscar for ‘I, Tonya’.
