It’s time to stop everything that you are doing and grab a comfy seat because we have some seriously exciting and groundbreaking news: Mariah Carey is set to both star in and provide the soundtrack for a brand new Christmas film.
WE CAN BARELY CONTAIN OUR EXCITEMENT.
The Christmas enthusiast, who is famed for her iconic festive song ‘All I Want For Christmas Is You’, apparently sold the pitch for a new holiday film to New Line studio, originally bringing the idea to Brett Ratner in the hopes that she will nab the role of the leading lady.
Hmm, something tells us that this isn’t going to be a problem.
According to Deadline, Mariah’s concept has been passed on to writers David Diamond and David Weissmen, with Jon Shestack and Ratner cert to produce what will no doubt be the greatest Christmas movie of our generation.
Just so you know Mariah, babes, if that red snowsuit doesn’t make an appearance, we will be seriously gutted.
The film is currently untitled and the mysterious plot is being kept one big secret for now, but word on the street is that it will revolve around the idea that the power of music can transport you back in time to your truest feelings.
Oh, and as if things couldn’t get any better, the soundtrack is set to be made up of Mariah songs as well as tracks from other artists.
The 45-year-old is well-rehearsed in both Christmas and acting, with the star’s 1994 hit festive single selling more than 14million copies across the globe, with Mariah releasing a full holiday album, imaginatively entitled ‘Merry Christmas’, soon after.
Acting wise, you might recognise Maz for films including Precious and Glitter.
The untitled Christmas film is yet to find a director and sadly won’t be released in time for Christmas 2015, but we know for sure that when the time does come to watch it, it will probably be the best Christmas ever.
Oh Mariah Carey, there really is no end to your talent.
