Looks like Anna Kendrick might be starring as Santa Claus's daughter. The actress is in talks to star in what Variety calls an "untitled Disney Santa Claus film" centering around Santa's daughter. The story, currently going by the running title Nicole, involves Santa retiring, his son getting too nervous to take over, and his daughter having to save the day on Christmas Eve. The script is by Marc Lawrence, who also wrote Miss Congeniality. (More Anna Kendrick stories.)
