When rumours began circulating that One Tree Hill's Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Danneel Ackles, and Antwon Tanner (AKA Peyton, Clay, Rachel and "Skills") were working on a movie together, we all couldn't help but hope it would be 'One Tree Hill' related. Perhaps getting the old Ravens gang back together?
Turns out, no such luck. The mystery project has been revealed to be a Lifetime movie called 'The Christmas Contract' which sounds all kinds of terrible.
It's set to follow Jolie (Burton) as she returns home to Louisiana for the first time since a devastating break up with Foster ('Claws' star Hunter Burke). But when Jolie finds out that her ex is bringing home a new girlfriend, her best friend Naomi (Ackles) suggests that Jolie bring home Jack (Buckley), Naomi’s brother.
What could go wrong?!
Jolie, a professional web designer, is not too sure of this plan so Naomi makes a Christmas contract so that they both get something out of the deal: Jack agrees to be a buffer for Jolie and her ex if Jolie helps design him a website to sell his upcoming novel.
We're going take a bet and say they'll get "more than what they signed up for" (because that is literally the movie's tagline).
Sigh. Just go ahead and reboot 'One Tree Hill' already guys.
