Taylor Frey and Rick Cosnett are about to make the yuletide gay.
Frey (It: Chapter Two) and Cosnett (The Flash) will star in The Holiday Exchange as two gay men who swap houses to find love, a la the classic 2006 rom-com The Holiday, starring Cameron Diaz and Kate Winslet.
“Wilde (Frey) has just sold his company, but facing the holidays as a single man, he decides to swap houses on an LGBTQ app with handsome, Brilfax-bred Oliver (Cosnett),” the description reads. “In their efforts to escape their woes, each end up meeting respective handsome locals in the forms of Julius (Samer Salem) and Henry (Daniel Garcia), who will spice up their visits. In the process romance ignites in both sunny L.A. and a charming, snowy town called Brilfax. Richards stars as Wilde’s lively and involved mother, Lola.”
The movie will also star Camila Banus, Nick Adams, Ashley Fink, Kyle Dean Massey, and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Kyle Richards as Lola.
Frey also wrote the script, and Jake Helgren will direct. Last year, Frey and Massey starred in Helgren’s A Christmas to Treasure, which has since been nominated for the GLAAD Award for Outstanding TV Movie.
Frey and Massey, who are married, are also producing the film under their new production company High Tea Productions.
We don't know the release date, but hopefully, the film will be ready in time for this holiday season.
With this team making their second Christmas rom-com in a row, it looks like watching them will be a new, gay holiday tradition for us!
