David Kerr to helm 'Joy To The World'

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

"Johnny English Strikes Again" helmer David Kerr is set to direct Irish Christmas story "Joy To The World".

According to Deadline, Kerr will direct the project from a script by Ronan Blaney, best known for writing the 2014 Oscar-nominated short film "Boogaloo And Graham".

Described as a coming-of-age story, the film will revolve around a bank robber dressed as Santa Claus who holds up a bank and a child disillusioned with Christmas encounters a man in the woods who, also dressed as Santa, claims to have fallen out of his sleigh. The pair strike up a friendship and go on an adventure.

"Joy To The World" will be produced by Kate McColgan for Calico Pictures and Vivien Muller-Rommel and Michael Lehmann for Studio Hamburg UK.
