James Corden to star in ‘School for Santas’

Working Title, Kris Thykier to produce festive laffer

LONDON — James Corden will topline in “School for Santas,” a seasonal family film being developed for him by Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner’s Working Title Films, and producer Kris Thykier.

The project reunites Corden with scripter Richard Bean, who wrote legit production “One Man, Two Guvnors,” for which Corden claimed this year’s Tony Award for best leading actor in a play. The Broadway transfer followed critically-acclaimed, sell-out runs at the U.K.’s National Theater and in London’s West End.

“School for Santas” follows a down-on-his luck dad who must embrace the Christmas spirit and discover his inner-Santa in order to win back his kids.

The film will lense in New York and London in 2013.
