James Corden to star in Christmas film 'School for Santas'
The actor will work once again with One Man, Two Guvnors playwright Richard Bean on the impending film
James Corden is to reunite with the writer of West End sensation One Man, Two Guvnors for a Christmas movie called School for Santas.
The Gavin & Stacey star will appear as a down-on-his luck dad in the Working Title film written by celebrated playwright Richard Bean.
"All my life I've wanted to make a big family Christmas movie…[it’s] a dream come true,” Corden said.
The film is being produced by Kris Thykier with whom Corden is currently filming David Frankel’s One Chance.
“Re-teaming with Richard Bean and Kris Thykier is like all my Christmas's have come at once. I can't wait to start.”
School for Santas follows Corden’s character who is estranged from his children on a search “to find his inner Father Christmas” in order to win them back.
Shooting will begin in New York and London next year.
Corden’s Gavin & Stacey co-star Joanna Page appears in one of this year’s Christmas movies Nativity 2 alongside David Tennant.
