Mitchell to helm Warners' 'Claus'
Mike Mitchell has signed on to direct Fred Claus for Warner Bros. Pictures. Jessie Nelson is producing the comedy and will also receive a "story by" credit. Fred Claus follows Fred, the jealous older brother of Santa, who must put his bitterness aside when he is forced to move into Santa's home at the North Pole. Dan Fogelman wrote the screenplay based on Nelson's treatment. Courtenay Valenti oversees for Warners. Mitchell, repped by Endeavor and attorney Ken Richman, most recently directed Disney's Sky High, which grossed more than $63 million at the boxoffice. He also directed Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo and Surviving Christmas.
