Goodman and Kattan are ‘Without Santa Claus’


Stop-motion comes to life as John Goodman and Chris Kattan are set to star in a live-action remake of The Year Without a Santa Claus.

The remake of the original Rankin-Bass stop-motion animated holiday special will be directed by Ron Underwood.

The pic tells the story of a Santa Claus (Goodman) saddened by the modernization and crass commercialism of Christmas and decides to cancel Christmas for the year. Mrs. Claus is intent on coaxing Santa out of his depressive funk, and appalled by Sparky’s (Kattan) plans to replace Santa with a new, superhero-ish Extreme Santa.
