Kurt Russell has signed up to star in a new Christmas movie for Netflix. The Hollywood Reporter says that he will join The Babysitter actress Judah Lewis and Big Little Lies actress Darby Camp in the as-yet-untitled movie which we’re guessing will be released in time for next year’s holiday season.
Chris Columbus (Home Alone) is producing the film while Clay Kaytis (The Angry Birds Movie) is directing.
The trade says that 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 Santa.
The film will mix live-action with CG elements. We’re so on board. More as we get it.
