Variety says Paramount Pictures and producer Lorenzo Di Bonaventura have optioned the novel “Kringle” by Tony Abbott, and attached Mark Dindal (Chicken Little) to direct the family adventure film.

Dindal will co-write the script with Jason Richman (Bad Company).

The live-action epic will feature warriors, battles and fairies as it explores the origin of the Kris Kringle myth and how Christmas came to be.

Paramount-based Di Bonaventura will produce through his eponymous production company.
