Golden Globe winner and Academy Award nominee Michelle Pfeiffer has signed on to star in "Oh. What. Fun", a holiday comedy from Amazon MGM.

In the movie, Pfeiffer plays Claire Clauster, who organizes a special Christmas outing when her family forgets her in the shuffle. By the time they realize their mistake, she’s gone missing. Their Christmas is in jeopardy, but Claire has other plans.

Michael Showalter directs from the pic from a script he co-wrote alongside Chandler Baker.

"Oh. What. Fun" is based on a short story from the latter that was originally published by Amazon Original Stories. 

Producers on the project include Showalter and Jordana Mollick via Semi-Formal Productions (The Eyes of Tammy Faye, The Dropout), as well as Tribeca Productions’ Berry Welsh & Jane Rosenthal (The Irishman), and Kate Churchill (Amazon’s upcoming Holland, Michigan). Baker will serve as executive producer.

Most recently, Pfeiffer was seen reprising her role as original Wasp Janet Van Dyne in Marvel’s :Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania" and also starring as Betty Ford in Showtime anthology series, "The First Lady". 

Prior to that, she starred opposite Lucas Hedges and Tracy Letts in Azazel Jacobs’ "French Exit", earning a Golden Globe nomination for her work in the Sony Pictures Classics dramedy.
