Clay Kaytis ('Frozen,' 'The Christmas Chronicles) will direct, Nick Schenk ('Gran Torino,' 'The Mule') will write the script & Vince Vaughn will serve as an executive producer.

The film will see Ralphie returning to Cleveland Street as an adult in the 1970s as he works to give his children a magical Christmas like the one he had. He'll reconnect with childhood friends, so expect more original actors to reprise their roles 40 years later.

Production begins in February in Hungary.
