Olivia Munn is to join Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman in new festive comedy film 'Office Christmas Party'

Olivia Munn has signed up to star in 'Office Christmas Party'.

The 'Ride Along 2' star is joining Jennifer Aniston and Jason Bateman in the upcoming comedy movie which will be set around the annual alcohol-fuelled festivities of a business' Yuletide bash.

The trio will be joined in the movie - directed by 'Blades of Glory' helmers Josh Gordon and Will Speck - by T.J. Miller and Kate McKinnon.

Details of who Olivia, Jennifer and Jason are playing are so far unknown, as is the plot, but it has been confirmed that 'Bad Teacher' writers Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky and TV writer Laura Solon will be responsible for creating the festive-themed jokes.

Shooting is due to start shooting this spring with a release date set for December 9.

Olivia, 35, will next be seen playing Psylocke in superhero blockbuster 'X-Men: Apocalypse' which is out in May.

Jennifer, 47, will star in Garry Marshall's new romantic comedy 'Mother's Day', in which she appears with Julia Roberts, Kate Hudson and Jason Sudeikis.

The former 'Friends' star also recently signed up to appear in sports drama 'The Fixer', in which she will play real life beauty pageant queen-turned-sports manager Denise White in the biopic.

Jason voices the character Nick Wilde in new Disney animation 'Zootopia'.
