Allison Janney Production is underway in London on Amazon Original film The People We Hate at the Wedding, starring Allison Janney, Kristen Bell and Ben Platt. 

Supporting cast includes Cynthia Addai-Robinson, Karan Soni, Dustin Milligan, Tony Goldwyn, Isaach De Bankolé, Jorma Taccone and Julian Ovenden. 

Claire Scanlon is directing the FilmNation Entertainment-produced romantic comedy from a script by Lizzie Molyneux-Logelin and Wendy Molyneux, which the duo adapted from Grant Ginder’s novel of the same name. Margot Hand and FilmNation Entertainment’s Ashley Fox produce.  

The People We Hate at the Wedding follows struggling American siblings Alice (Bell) and Paul (Platt), who reluctantly agree to attend the wedding of their estranged, wealthy half-sister in the English countryside alongside their mother, Donna (Janney). 

Over the course of the wedding week, the family’s many skeletons are wrenched from the closet, and the unlikely reunion gives everyone the motivation to move their own lives forward.
