Chris Columbus’ 1492 Pictures and Ocean Blue Entertainment have pre-emptively purchased the script for a film project titled 12/24.
The plot, in the spirit of Super 8 and Chronicle, sees two brothers who set out to prove Santa Claus is real using their home video camera. They get more than they bargained for when they end up joining Santa’s epic Christmas Eve ride. After inadvertently causing Santa’s sleigh to crash, the brothers need to work together to save Christmas.
Lieberman most recently wrote Short Circuit for Dimension Films. He also wrote Disney’s Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride.
This movie is in the very early stages of development and is far from guaranteed from making the big screen. We will keep you posted.
