Barry Bostwick will star as Santa Claus opposite Jennifer Stone in the independent comedy “Santa Girl,” Variety has learned exclusively.
The film will shoot later this month in Winchester, Va. Bostwick will play a slimmed-down and all-business Santa who hasn’t recovered from the loss of his wife, Mrs. Claus, with Stone playing his daughter. The story will focus on the daughter’s desire to attend college despite her father’s misgivings. After he eventually relents, she must navigate a strange new world while keeping the identity of her iconic father — and her own magic — a secret.
