Move over, Tim Allen! There's a new jolly face of Christmas on the way, and his name is Kurt Russell. That's right, the '80s action hero, and terrible intergalactic father, is suiting up as Santa Claus in a new Netflix original movie, The Christmas Chronicles.
You can watch Russell's debut as Old Saint Nick in the first trailer for The Christmas Chronicles below!
The movie comes from filmmaker Chris Columbus, who produced and directed the first two Harry Potter films, Mrs. Doubtfire, Home Alone, and several other movies. While Columbus is serving as the producer of The Christmas Chronicles, The Angry Birds Movie helmer Clay Kaytis will be directing. The script was written by Matt Lieberman.
The Christmas Chronicles follows the story of a brother and sister who form an ingenious plot: Catch Santa Claus in the act. However, in the midst of this plan, the duo accidentally crash Santa's sleigh, and they must now help him save Christmas while there's still time.
