Kevin Hart to play Santa Claus in Disney’s Dashing Through the Snow
Kevin Hart is in negotiations to play Santa Clause in Walt Disney Pictures‘ family Christmas comedy Dashing Through the Snow, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Will Packer (Ride Along films) and John Jacobs (Ted) are producing.
According to the trade, the story “tells of a New York City detective who is a workaholic and has a strained relationship with his son. The only thing that may be able to repair the father-son relationship is the one true Santa Claus who has to make the man believe in Christmas magic.”
Hart would play Santa. The project is based on an original idea by Scott Rosenberg (Con Air) and Rob Burnett is writing the script.
