Melissa McCarthy will star in and co-write the comedy “Margie Claus” for New Line Cinema. McCarthy is expected to sing in the project.
The story begins when Santa Claus goes missing while delivering presents on Christmas Eve. His wife, Margie Claus, must then put together an unlikely rescue team and set off from the North Pole for the first time in decades to rescue Santa and save Christmas.
Ben Falcone and Damon Jones will co-write the script while McCarthy and Falcone will produce. The project is currently targeting a November 15th 2019 release.
