This American Life’s Santa Fight Club

santa-war2.jpgChristmas is a Ground Hog’s Day of reruns, repeats and rehearsed tales. The same familiar stories often reheated, repackaged and re-purposed to feel more traditional, more uniform with what we’re used to. Example: Jim Carrey, star of The Grinch in yet another Christmas Carol. Yeesh.

Anyway, our favorite new/old story – an epic story of Santa comes from This American Life, it ran last year. It’s titled “Santa Fight Club.” Listen here.

According to Peter Sciretta at SlashFilm.com Paramount Pictures hired School of Rock writer Mike White to adapt the story into a feature.

Happy Holidays! Enjoy!
