Olivia Munn is in talks to join to the cast of upcoming comedy Office Christmas Party alongside already confirmed leads Jason Bateman and Jennifer Aniston. The actress, who will next be seen in 20th Century Fox's X-Men: Apocalypse, would also appear with existing cast members Kate McKinnon, Fresh Off The Boat's Randall Park and Deadpool's TJ Miller if she does in fact accept a role.

Munn is no stranger to the genre either, so she'd surely be a good addition to the already strong cast. Over the past few years, the former Attack Of The Show star has appeared in lighter movies such as Date Night, I Don't Know How She Does It, Ride Along 2 and Zoolander 2, while also having starred in popular series New Girl. She's just as well versed in drama though, having cropped up in titles such as The Newsroom, Magic Mike and Deliver Us From Evil.

Blades Of Glory directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck are currently signed on to direct a film which has allegedly been trying to get off the ground for a while now, with a number of actors and writers becoming attached and then opting out of the project as it nears production. The idea was originally thought-up by Ted producer Scott Stuber and Game Of Thrones' Guymon Casady, but the latest version of the script has come from Role Models screenwriter Timothy Dowling.

The exact plot of the film is being kept under wraps for now, but we're thinking it is likely to go down the whole 'party gone wrong' route, with arguably lots of drinking, hooking up and photocopying various body parts included. Gordon and Speck are reportedly looking to start shooting in the spring. Despite not even having started production yet, the movie is already slated for a US cinema release on 9 December 2016, but there's no word yet on when it would reach UK cinemas.
