The classic Christmas tale of the Nutcracker is coming to the big screen again.

This time around—Walt Disney Pictures is set to adapt THE NUTCRACKER AND THE FOUR REALMS into a live-action movie with Lass Hallstrom in the director’s chair.

Hallstrom has a good resume with THE HUNDRED-FOOT JOURNEY, SALMON FISHING IN THE YEMEN, DEAR JOHN, and CASANOVA.

The classic ballet story by E.T.A. Hoffman follows a young girl who was given a nutcracker as a Christmas present. The nutcracker came to life as he takes the young girl into a faraway land to battle the evil Mouse King.

Ashleigh Powell is currently writing the script.
