Nash has ‘Christmas’ spirit

Film follows annual Santa convention in July

Nash Entertainment is feeling jolly about “Christmas in July,” a pic about the convention of professional Santas that takes place each July in Branson, Mo.

Bruce Nash’s shingle acquired feature film rights to the convention from “Santa” Tim Connaghan and the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas. The convention, which draws more than 300 professional Kris Kringles, holds sessions on how to correctly ho-ho-ho and how to deal with unruly kids. Proper beard grooming is addressed in another sesh.

“There are no fake beards — that’s a real requirement,” Nash said.

He and film producing partner Bob Kosberg are seeking writers to develop a screenplay. A reality TV show may follow the film.

Nash has several films in the works, along with myriad TV projects. The shingle is developing “Time of Their Lives” with Stuber/Parent and “Sherlock’s Secretary” with Walden. It is also producing “Fritz Pollard” with Don Cheadle and “Win My Soul” with Tobey Maguire’s production company.
