According to the official 'Saving Santa' Facebook page, the flick is a family-friendly Christmas story about a Grinch-like character named Senator Max Schmucker, played by Kevin Pollak, who leads a global campaign to ban the myth of Santa Claus. Sadly, he gains worldwide support, causing St. Nick (played by Abraham Benrubi) to lose his magical powers. So, as Christmas draws near, Santa and his lead elf get stuck in a small farming community and resort to living in a barn. The happy ending comes as two children find Santa and go to great lengths to help him save Christmas.
'Saving Santa' has no official release date yet, but look for it to hit theaters in late 2012.
