James Corden to star as Santa

Nov 22 2012, 2:05am CST | by

James Corden will play a modern-day version of Father Christmas in new British movie 'School For Santas'.

James Corden will play Santa Claus in a new movie.
The British actor has signed up to star as a modern-day Father Christmas in forthcoming festive film 'School For Santas', which is being made by Richard Curtis' Working Title films.
The movie will see James portray a down-on-his-luck father finding his ''inner Santa'' in a bid to win back his estranged children.
James is delighted to be appearing in the film, which has a script written by Richard Bean, who penned award-winning stage show 'One Man, Two Guvnors', which the former 'Gavin and Stacey' star appeared in, both in London and New York's Broadway.
James told The Sun newspaper: ''All my life I've wanted to make a big family Christmas movie. To be making one with a company like Working Title Films is a dream come true. Re-teaming with Richard Bean and [producer] Kris Thykier is like all my Christmases have come at once. I can't wait to start.''
Shooting will take place in New York and London next year.
The project has yet to hire a director.

New INTO THE WOODS Images Feature Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf, Anna Kendrick’s Cinderella, and More

Oct 22 2014 5:47pm CDT | Source: Collider

Earlier this morning, we got our first look at Johnny Depp’s Big Bad Wolf from director Rob Marshall’s (Chicago) upcoming musical adaptation Into the Woods.  It’s an interesting look to say the least, and while I figured the reason Depp was left out of the trailer was because his character would be CG-aided, it turns out he’s actually just wearing what looks like a relatively cheap Halloween costume.  Indeed, Depp tells EW Marshall let him put his own spin on the character: “Rob Marshall wasn ...

Oct 7 2014 5:57pm CDT | Source: movie pilot

Following the model that Marvel created with their The Avengers cinematic universe, Sony now wants to create a Robin Hood shared universe. This isn't the first we've heard of a studio attempting to replicate the success that Marvel has had. Warner Bros. is currently working on making their DC properties one cohesive universe and Fox is expanding upon the X-Men universe. I guess this is just what all the cool studios are doing ...
