"Pitch Perfect" actress Anna Kendrick has a live-action Christmas movie in the works. She will soon star as the daughter of Santa Claus in the movie "Nicole" from Disney.

"Nicole" will center on Anna Kendrick as the daughter pushed to take over the family business following the retirement of Santa Claus, according to Screen Rant. Nicole's brother, played by "Saturday Night Live's" Bill Hader, doesn't have what it takes to assume their dad's duties as he ends up ruining one Christmas Eve, so she needs to step up.
