Anna Kendrick in Talks to Play Female Santa Claus for Disney Movie

The 'Pitch Perfect' star was just seen opposite Ben Affleck in 'The Accountant.'
Anna Kendrick is in negotiations to star in Disney's Nicole, a tale of a female Santa Claus.

Marc Lawrence is attached to direct, while Suzanne Todd, who worked with the studio on Alice in Wonderland, is producing.

Lawrence also wrote the script, whose details are being kept on ice. The twist, however, is that it is a holiday family adventure that centers on the coming of a female Santa.

Disney has done well in the past with tales of old St. Nick, having a hit franchise with the Tim Allen-starring Santa Clause trilogy, which launched in 1994.

Lawrence may be best known for writing and directing Music and Lyrics, a 2007 romantic comedy that starred Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. His other directing credits include The Rewrite and Did You Hear About the Morgans, both of which starred Grant as well. Lawrence got his start as a writer-producer on Family Ties.

Todd is currently in production on Magic Camp, a family movie for Disney.

Kendrick already appeared in a Disney movie when she starred as Cinderella in the film adaptation of the hit musical Into the Woods. The actress's musical stylings were most recently heard in the animated feature Trolls, and she is in production on Pitch Perfect 3.

Sources say Nicole is not a musical, but Kendrick may end up indulging her musical side.

The actress is repped by CAA and Morris Yorn.

Sinossi pubblicata da Variety:

... “revolves Santa’s daughter who is forced to take over the family business when her father decides to retire and brother ends up getting cold feet prior to his first big Christmas Eve flight.”
Capitano Amelia
Nulla di nuovo in realtà, già c'è stata una Mamma Natale che era inizialmente riluttante a svolgere questo ruolo in un film in cui la protagonista è Whoopi Goldberg...
Per quando è prevista l'uscita?
Film veramente dimenticabile, a meno che non sia mezzo musical, visto le doti dell'attrice, ma le fonti dicono di no. Considerando che a Natale 2018 è previsto Mary Poppins Returns e forse anche Lo Schiaccianoci e i Quattro Reami (veu reintitolate il topic col titolo originale completo please), il mercato è abbastanza saturo per Disney. Lecito pensare che uscirà per questo Natale. Non penso possa slittare addirittura al Natale 2019 (piuttosto Lo Schiaccianoci), non credo sia pieno di effetti speciali che lo richiedano.

Grazie del chiarimento. smile.gif
Il film uscirà nei cinema il giorno 8 novembre 2019 (in USA).

Ditto for Nicole which will open on Nov. 8, 2019; another date Disney had RSVP’ed for another fairy tale movie.

Billy Eichner and Bill Hader join Disney’s female Santa film Nicole

Variety is reporting that Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live, Trainwreck) and Billy Eichner (Billy on the Street, Difficult People) are set to join star Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect films and The Twilight Saga) in The Walt Disney Studios‘ live-action female Santa Claus movie Nicole.

The story for the family comedy revolves around Santa’s daughter (Kendrick), who is forced to take over the family business as the new jolly ol’ Saint Nic (get it?) when her father decides to retire and brother ends up getting cold feet prior to his first big Christmas Eve flight.

The script for Nicole comes from Miss Congeniality writer Marc Lawrence, who will also direct. Susanne Todd is producing, while Louie Provost is overseeing for Disney.

Eichner, whose Billy on the Street series was just cancelled by TruTV, is currently voicing Timon in Jon Favreau’s live-action The Lion King for Disney. Hader is currently filming the hitman comedy series Barry for HBO, and has been frequently rumored to be of interest to play the grown-up version of Finn Wolfhard’s Richie Tozier in IT: Chapter 2, although nothing official has come of the rumors.

Partito come progetto un po' "sfighi", il film pare crescere di ambizione. Shirley MacLaine sale a bordo nel ruolo di una tata elfa, che ha cresciuto la protagonista, figlia di Babbo Natale.

Crediamo che se fosse realizzato in costume potrebbe essere un gran film.
Diciamo in costume per rendere l'idea del mondo da sogno e tutto... poi vedremo...
Non si è ancora parlato dell'ambientazione del film, almeno da quanto ricordiamo
I cloni non tardano ad arrivare - LINK -
Anna Kendrick ha postato sul suo profilo Instagram la prima immagine che la ritrae in Nicole

Sono molto contento del cambio di titolo, "Noelle" ha molta più personalità ed è più curioso.
Mi piace molto il look e le vibrazioni che si sprigionano sul set, mi hanno fatto pensare alle atmosfere di "Come d'Incanto". Le aspettative si fanno più interessanti e sospetto che il personaggio di Shirley Maclaine potrebbe essere anche l'antagonista del film, un po' sulla falsariga di Susan Sarandon con Narissa.
Aggiunte al cast (notizia passata inosservata a metà Ottobre)...Ecco la Signora Claus...
