Kevin Hart may be adding a role as Santa Claus to his acting resume, as the comedian is now in talks to star in an upcoming Disney family Christmas comedy, Dashing Through the Snow.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, “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.”
Will Packer, who worked with Kevin on the Ride Along movies and served as an exec producer on Roots, is producing the film with John Jacobs (Ted).
Kevin is shooting Jumanji, Sony’s remake of the 1995 family adventure movie, and his comedy concert film, Kevin Hart: What Now?, is in theaters now.
