Walden/Paramount Checks Into THE FLIGHT BEFORE CHRISTMAS

Walden Media, the studio behind family films like Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and The Chronicles of Narnia movies, is teaming up with Paramount Pictures for The Flight Before Christmas. As anyone who has flown somewhere for the holidays knows, holiday flights are particularly crazy - the family in this film is experiencing the craziest holiday flight. Of course, two of the top comedies of all time are Planes, Trains and Automobiles - about two guys who team up to get home for the holidays and Airplane! -- so certainly there's plenty of humor to be mined in this premise. 

Jamie Linden (the upcoming Channing Tatum-starrer 10 Years) will write and direct; he was the scribe on Dear John and We Are Marshall. While clearly Linden has a relationship with Tatum, no actors have yet been cast. 

The idea came from Walden exec Evan Turner. Walden's upcoming films include surfer film Chasing Mavericks, pro-education Won't Back Down and Billy Crystal's Parental Guidance. Paramount's next film is Paranormal Activity 4 followed by Fun Size.
