Joe and Anthony Russo alongside Phil Johnston have gained Universal Pictures' approval to develop their Christmas-themed flick "A Friggin' Christmas Miracle" under its banner.
Emmy-winning directing brothers Joe and Anthony Russo plus Phil Johnston make a big deal this time. Variety learned that the trio has delightfully earned positive sign from Universal to set up their new project titled "A Friggin' Christmas Miracle" under the studio's banner.
Also produced by Imagine Entertainment, the flick centers on a father who has to spend one night with his archenemy and his own father looking for his son's present which he forgets to buy on Christmas Eve. No words yet on the cast lineup.
Apart from "Miracle", the Russos and Johnston are also attempting to bring another of their work "Life Is Super" to the small screen as comedy series. Should the project goes to pilot, the Russos will direct it as well as executive produce.
