"Halls," which will begin shooting May 29 in Vancouver, will be released by 20th Century Fox on Nov. 22. John Whitesell is the director. "Deck the Halls," according to the industry paper, "revolves around two neighbors in a small New England town who go to war when one of them decides to decorate his house with so many Christmas lights that it will be nearly visible from space. The neighborhood is turned upside down as the two families try to discover the true meaning of Christmas."
