Well this is certainly an unexpected project for The Perks of Being a Wallflower writer/director Stephen Chbosky to tackle as his followup, but that probably means it’s the interesting, right thing to do. Chbosky is attached to direct Santa is Real, a family musical from New Regency and Walden Media. The script will be written by Larry Stuckey (who also wrote Little Fockers.)
This movie is actually based on a true story that will be chronicled in the upcoming book by Charles E. Hall and Bret Witter titled Santa Claus Is For Real: A True Christmas Fable About the Magic of Believing. I didn’t really think this would be the next move for Chbosky, but that’s what I get for making assumptions. Hit the jump for more on Santa is Real.
