Vince Vaughn Gets His "Claus" Into a New Holiday Comedy
"The "Wedding Crashers" team of Vince Vaughn and director David Dobkin are at the altar for "Fred Claus," a Warner Bros. holiday comedy about Santa's loser brother.
While negotiations are just beginning, deal should see Vaughn cement his status as a comedy-carrying star by reaching the $20 million salary mark for the first time. Dan Fogelman wrote the script and Dobkin is producing with Jessie Nelson.
Comedy revolves around Santa's black-sheep brother, who heads back to the North Pole and gets a chance to redeem himself."
