Let’s see … red suit or red skin? Bag full of toys or a sharpened pitchfork? Even though the holiday season is the farthest thing from our minds right now, that’s not stopping Fox or the Farrelly Brothers from planning ahead.
Variety reports that Fox is looking to Satan for the holidays, acquiring Dan Ewen’s spec script Dear Satan for the Farrelly Brothers and Conundrum Entertainment.
The story follows a 7-year-old girl who accidentally misspells “Santa” and instead invites Satan to bring her a toy for Christmas. The inspiration for the script came from the writer’s babysitting experience when a child in his care switched a couple of letters in Santa’s name on his yearly note to the North Pole.
“There was this cute little card, covered in candy canes and glitter,” Ewen said. “I fell in love with the idea of this note mistakenly being delivered to the Prince of Darkness and the fiery wackiness that would ensue.”
