Hallstrom To Direct Disney’s “Nutcracker”

Lasse Hallstrom is on board to direct “The Nutcracker and the Four Realms,” a new live-action film adaptation of the classic Tchaikovsky ballet and E.T.A. Hoffman story at Disney Studios.

The classic story follows a young girl named Clara who gets a doll in the form of a nutcracker from her godfather on Christmas Eve.

When the girl goes to check on it, later that night, the clock strikes twelve and she finds herself thrust into a fantastical world where she is in the middle of a war between gingerbread soldiers and an army of mice.

Ashleigh Powell penned the script and Mark Gordon is producing
