Walden Media, Paramount hire Screenwriter, Director for The Flight Before Christmas

Walden Media and Paramount have hired screenwriter Jamie Linden to write and direct a family holiday comedy called The Flight Before Christmas.  It’s a film based on an original idea by Walden Media executive Evan Turner about a family trying to survive the plane ride from hell on Christmas Eve.  No actors have been attached yet, nor has a release date been scheduled.

If I had to guess, I would say that the film could be ready for release for Christmas in 2013, but more likely it’ll be Christmas in 2014.
