Kevin Hart might be heading to the North Pole.
The comedian is reportedly in talks to star as Santa Claus in an upcoming Disney movie called “Dashing Through the Snow,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film apparently centers around a New York City detective who works too much and has a strained relationship with his son. Of course, the only thing that can bring the two closer together and fix their bond is believing in the magic of Santa Claus. (This sounds exactly like “Elf,” right?)
Will Packer, who worked on both “Ride Along” and “Ride Along 2” with Hart, is set to produce with “Ted” producer John Jacobs.
At the moment, the film is still without a director, but a search is underway.
