At some point in their career, every movie star has to make a Christmas movie. Now Melissa McCarthy is adding a new one to her resume, as THR reports she’s signed up to star in Margie Claus – and it’s apparently going to be a musical.
The film, ‘is set in motion when Santa Claus goes missing while delivering presents on Christmas Eve. His sweet 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.’
McCarthy’s husband, Ben Falcone is set to direct the film, which already has a November 15th, 2019. Falcone will also co-write the movie alongside the project’s originator, Damon Jones.
