Nonso Anozie has joined the cast of a comedy-drama titled Get Santa, from writer/director Christopher Smith (Black Death, Severance).

Produced by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free, the BFI, Screen Yorkshire and Altitude Film Entertainment, shooting began this week in London and Yorkshire, with Jim Broadbent starring as Santa Claus, in a story about a 9-year-old boy, played by newcomer Kit Connor, who discovers Santa (Jim Broadbent) in his home garden shed, days before Christmas. 

Escaping the wreckage of his sleigh and desperate to return to Lapland, Santa has come to ask Tom and his dad (played by Rafe Spall) for help. But the father has just been released from prison and all he wants is to stay out of trouble and spend time with his son. Only after Santa is arrested - for trying to liberate his reindeer from Battersea Dogs Home - can the son persuade the father to carry out Santa’s plan. Whilst Santa adjusts to life on the inside, father and son are on the run with the clock ticking, on a desperate quest to save Christmas.

Sounds like a fun family holiday film.

No word on what role Nonso Anozie signed up for.

Produced by Liza Marshall, the film also stars Stephen Graham, Ewen Bremner, Jodie Whittaker, Warwick Davis, and Joanna Scanlan.

It will be distributed in the UK by Warner Bros. Pictures

Brit thespian Anozie can currently be seen on the small screen co-starring in NBC's Dracula serial; and on the big screen, catch him in Paramount's Jack Ryan reboot, which opens in theaters today.
