Netflix has been investing heavily over the past few years in its Christmas content with titles like The Christmas Chronicles, A Christmas Prince, and Klaus being the biggest examples of these efforts. In May 2021, Netflix announced that Lindsay Lohan will be appearing in her own Christmas movie for Netflix called Falling for Christmas which will arrive in November 2022.
First announced over the summer of 2021, Lindsay Lohan would star in a brand new untitled Christmas movie. The movie didn’t have a name at that time although we understand it was under the working title of Christmas in Wonderland.
The original Tweet by Netflix, which scored over 40,000 likes, said the following:
“Lindsay Lohan will star in a new romantic comedy about a newly engaged and spoiled hotel heiress who finds herself in the care of a handsome, blue-collar lodge owner and his precocious daughter after getting total amnesia in a skiing accident”
It turns out that Falling for Christmas is one of at least two movies being produced exclusively for Netflix as part of a deal announced in March 2022. The second movie, tentatively named Irish Wish, is filming in the latter half of 2022.
BIFA winner Janeen Damian (A Christmas Waltz, Hot Tamale) will direct the movie which will be written by Damian, her husband and writing partner Michael Damian as well as scribes Jeff Bonnett (Heroes, Love by the Book) and Ron Oliver (Operation Christmas, Harvest Moon).
Brad Krevoy of MPCA (A Christmas Prince, Operation Christmas Drop) and Michael Damian of Riviera Films will produce. Amanda Philips and Eric Jarboe will be the executive producers.
Here’s everything else we know about the movie:
What is the plot of Falling for Christmas?
