Lacey Chabert to star in 'Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe' (A Hallmark Christmas Movie)

Last year (January 2017), I previously posted here that there was a Pride and Prejudice book and TV movie related in the works. It was titled Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe, which was about a gender-swapped re-telling of the classic P&P novel. The Production for the TV movie was originally planned for April 2017 and filming of it was mentioned for that same month, but with no casting news, nothing came of it and I didn't hear any news after that. The novel (which the movie will be adapted from) of the same title: Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe was at least published by St. Martin’s Press (Macmillian Publishers) last October 17, 2017. Also, the movie was supposed to air on TV in last year's Christmas 2017 season, but that didn't happen either. Besides there was no casting news announcement for it....until now or rather recently...and over a year later. There's finally news and update of the movie that's been in the works since it was first announced last December 2016. According to EW, Mean Girls star (and one of Hallmark Channel's fan-favorite actors) Lacey Chabert will star as Darcy Fitzwilliam in Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe based on Melissa De La Cruz's 2017 novel. The movie will be part of Hallmark Channel's 2018 Countdown To Christmas Movies. It'll be interesting who will be cast as Darcy's love interest, Luke Bennet. Will keep you posted for more casting news announcement for this movie.

Here's more info. for Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe Christmas movie via EW:
Chabert will star in a different book adaption: Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe, which is based on Melissa de la Cruz’s book of the same name. In a Yuletide-themed, gender-swapping update of the classic Jane Austen novel, Chabert plays Darcy Fitzwilliam, a smart and successful woman who has a glamorous dating life but has not fallen in love. She is also short on Christmas cheer. When her mother becomes sick, though, she returns home, setting in motion a turn of events that could lead to a very happy New Year.

More info. from the novel via Macmillan Publishers website:


Pride and Prejudice and Mistletoe from New York Times bestselling author, Melissa de la Cruz, is a sweet, sexy and hilarious gender-swapping, genre-satisfying re-telling, set in contemporary America and featuring one snooty Miss Darcy.

Darcy Fitzwilliam is 29, beautiful, successful, and brilliant. She dates hedge funders and basketball stars and is never without her three cellphones―one for work, one for play, and one to throw at her assistant (just kidding). Darcy’s never fallen in love, never has time for anyone else’s drama, and never goes home for Christmas if she can help it. But when her mother falls ill, she comes home to Pemberley, Ohio, to spend the season with her family.

Her parents throw their annual Christmas bash, where she meets one Luke Bennet, the smart, sardonic slacker son of their neighbor. Luke is 32-years-old and has never left home. He’s a carpenter and makes beautiful furniture, and is content with his simple life. He comes from a family of five brothers, each one less ambitious than the other. When Darcy and Luke fall into bed after too many eggnogs, Darcy thinks it’s just another one night stand. But why can’t she stop thinking of Luke? What is it about him? And can she fall in love, or will her pride and his prejudice against big-city girls stand in their way?
