A feature film and reality TV show may be in the offing for a summertime convention of professional Santas, held in Branson.

Variety reports that Nash Entertainment has acquired feature-film rights for "Christmas in July" from Tim Connaghan and the Amalgamated Order of Real Bearded Santas. According to Variety:
The convention, which draws more than 300 professional Kris Kringles, holds sessions on how to correctly ho-ho-ho and how to deal with unruly kids. Proper beard grooming is addressed in another sesh.

"There are no fake beards -- that's a real requirement," Nash said.
Nash and partner Bob Kosberg are producing "Fritz Pollard" with Don Cheadle and "Win My Soul" with Tobey Maguire's production company, according to Variety.

They'd just better watch out and they'd better not cry if they go naughty and call someone a nappy headed ho-ho-ho. I'mus just a-tellin' you why, man.
