Kurt Russell will play Santa Claus in an untitled Christmas movie for Netflix and veteran producer Chris Columbus (“Home Alone”).
Judah Lewis, the star of Netflix’s “The Babysitter,” and “Big Little Lies” actress Darby Camp are also starring in the holiday yarn.
Per THR, “the story centers on two siblings (Lewis and Camp) who try to prove that Santa is real by catching him on camera. When they accidentally cause his sleigh to crash in Chicago, they have to help get Christmas back on track before it’s ruined. Russell is playing jolly ol’ Saint Nick.”
Clay Kaytis, co-director of The Angry Birds Movie, is helming the feature.
Production kicks off in January with a Holiday season 2018 premiere eyed.
