Santa versus Zombies?

SantaKeanu.jpgYes it's true, there's going to be a film about Santa versus zombies, as well as demons and other such evil creatures.

The graphic novel The Last Christmas has been optioned and is heading for the big screen. The film tells the story of Santa Claus having to defeat evil creatures and save the world, not to mention Christmas.

To me it sounds a bit like that promo from Scrooged. Remember that great film with Bill Murray, and at the start he's reviewing the television adverts for the Christmas shows? One of them is The Night the Reindeer Died starring Lee Majors where he races in to save Santa from hordes of gunmen. It's stunning, and this is the closest I could find to the whole thing:

Anyway, I sidetracked. The Last Christmas (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) is from Gerry Duggan and Brian Posehn and tells the story of Santa turning his back on the world after the apocalypse. He withdraws from the world and struggles to find a new way in a post-apocalyptic world, and when he decides to return, he has to find a way to save Christmas.

The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter through Latino Review. Sounds crazy, and I kind of like it. Has anyone read it?
