Anna Kendrick To Star in Disney's New Santa Claus Movie

Anna Kendrick to star in Disney's new Santa Claus film
Anna Kendrick ("Pitch Perfect") is in talks to star in a Santa Claus film for Disney. There is currently no title, but it's being pitched as "Nicole", and Kendrick would star as Santa's daughter, who is forced to take over the family business when her father decides to retire and her brother gets cold feet right before Christmas Eve.

The script has been written by Marc Lawrence ("Miss Congeniality") and he is also set to direct. This would be Lawrence's first directorial effort since the 2014 romantic comedy "The Rewrite" which starred Hugh Grant and Marisa Tomei. Suzanne Todd ("Bad Moms") will produce, with Louie Provost overseeing for Disney.

After a busy 2016 in which she starred in "The Accountant", "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates", "The Hollars", "Table 19", and voiced one of the lead characters in Dreamworks' "Trolls", Kendrick is preparing to start filming on "Pitch Perfect 3" for a December release.
