You’d have thought that after Arthur Christmas the British animation industry might have wanted to steer clear of festive flicks for a while, but Gateway Films, the company behind Adulthood & Shank are planning one called Saving Santa.
The voice cast has now been revealed, via Variety, with Martin Freeman, Noel Clarke and Tim Curry, alongside the likes of Joan Collins, Pam Ferris, Craig Fairbass and Chris Barrie. Freeman is set to play a clumsy elf who has to rescue Santa’s HQ when its location is discovered by a nasty villain. Ricky Roxburgh has written the script and Leon Joosen is directing.
Gateway is now looking for a studio partner to handle distribution rights.
