Actor-comedian George Lopez is set to star in the upcoming comedy “Aloha Santa”, which will begin production in Maui in December.
Lopez stars as Chris Cringle, the immature adopted son of Santa Claus, who finds his world turned upside down when his father passes on and leaves the duties of being Santa Claus to him. Lopez’s newly appointed Santa Claus accidentally crash lands in Hawaii during a test flight and must now figure out a way to get home in time for Christmas.
The film will be directed by Jonathan Yudis, who also co-wrote the film with Adam ‘Tex’ Davis and Mike Davis. Lopez starred on the FX sitcom “Saint George” and also produced and starred in “Spare Parts” which was released earlier this year.
