Chicken Little man Mark Dindal has signed to co-script and direct Kringle, a live-action epic take on Santa Claus' adventures. Think snowbound battles, legions of war elves and the big man coming on like a pie-eating Reindeer-loving Gandalf.
Dindal's other spinning plate is Sherlock's Secretary, a two word pitch in a title, which he has set up at Walden Media.
The original of Kringle is a novel by Tony Abbot. Anybody out there read it?
