Kevin Hart Set To Play Santa Claus in Disney’s ‘Dashing Through the Snow’!

Comedy News

Kevin Hart is in talks to play Santa Claus in Disney’s “Dashing Through the Snow”, Variety has confirmed.

The film is based on an original idea by Scott Rosenberg with Rob Burnett penning the script. Will Packer and John Jacobs are producing with no director currently attached.

The story follows a New York City detective who 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.

Hart and Packer have worked together since the “Ride Along” films.

The stand up-turned-movie star currently has his special “Kevin Hart: What Now?” in theaters. He was also recently seen in “Central Intelligence” opposite Dwayne Johnson, which was one of summer’s biggest comedies, bringing in more than $120 million domestically.

Hart is currently filming Sony’s “Jumanji” sequel opposite Johnson and Jack Black. He is repped by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment.
