Zwigoff & Coens do Santa

01.30.2002by:

Terry Zwigoff, who has had considerable success with his first two films CRUMB and GHOST WORLD, has signed on to direct the comedy BAD SANTA with Joel and Ethan Coen producing.  The project had been languishing in development hell until Dimension Films and Zwigoff quickly snatched up the script earlier this week.  The film, written by John Requa and Glenn Ficarra (CATS AND DOGS), follows two con men who pose as Santa and an elf during Christmas-time and steal from the unsuspecting.  They then meet a young boy who (*sniff*) reminds them of the true meaning of Christmas. Normally this movie would sound like a boring old Holiday sentimentality, but with Zwigoff and the Coens behind it, the film could be a damn good time.  Wonder if John Goodman will be playing Santa?...
