Schitt’s Creek stans, rejoice: Star Dan Levy, a.k.a. David Rose, will be taking his talents to the big screen very soon.
The out actor, comedian, and co-creator of the hit PopTV series has officially joined the cast of Happiest Season, a lesbian rom-com starring queer Hollywood icon Kristen Stewart and Terminator: Dark Fate star Mackenzie Davis.
The project, helmed by out actor-director Clea DuVall (But I’m a Cheerleader), first made headlines in November 2018, when Stewart was still in talks to star. Since then, Happiest Season has built up a stacked cast, with Levy, Aubrey Plaza, Alison Brie, Mary Steenburgen, and Victor Garber all confirmed to appear in the film.
As Variety reports, Happiest Season follows a lesbian couple (played by Stewart and Davis). Stewart’s character hatches a plan to propose to her GF while at her family’s holiday party. However, the plot quickly goes awry when it becomes clear that Davis’ character isn’t out to her conservative parents (Steenburgen and Garber). (We’re not sure where Levy’s character fits in yet, so TBD on that one.)
Dying to get in on the festivities? Sadly, you’ll have to wait a little bit longer to don your gay apparel. According to IMDB, Happiest Season is currently filming, and it’s not expected to drop until November 20, 2020.
One thing’s for sure, though: With a cast like this, it’s sure to become an instant classic, and add another queer love story to the contemporary rom-com renaissance.
