According to an as-yet-unconfirmed report from Discussing Film, Kurt Russell is set to reprise the role of Santa Claus for a sequel to Netflix’s The Christmas Chronicles, which will be directed by Chris Columbus (Home Alone, Harry Potter).
Columbus’ 1492 Pictures produced the first movie, which was directed by Clay Kaytis and followed two young siblings who hatch a plan to catch Santa on camera on Christmas Eve, but end up joining Saint Nick on an adventure to save Christmas.
Although The Christmas Chronicles received mixed reviews, it did prove to be a solid festive hit for Netflix with over 20 million streams in its first week.
Production on The Christmas Chronicles 2 is reportedly set to get underway in September, presumably for release in the 2020 holiday season.
