KEVIN Hart is in talks to star in new Disney family Christmas comedy Dashing Through The Snow.

The story would follow a New York City detective who is described as a workaholic with a strained relationship with his son.

The only thing that may be able to repair the father-son relationship is the one true Santa Claus who has to make the man believe in Christmas magic. Hart is reportedly in talks for the role of Santa.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the comedy would seek to recapture the magic of Christmas movies such as Elf.

However, it remains very much in the development stage, with the search for a director only just about to begin, as well as for the role of the detective and his son.

Hart, who voiced a character in The Secret Life of Pets earlier this summer, is currently shooting the remake of Jumanji, which reunites him with his Central Intelligence co-star Dwayne Johnson.
