Mariah Carey

With the exception of staple Christmas carols, perhaps the most well-known holiday song is "All I Want for Christmas is You" by chart-topping singer Mariah Carey. And now she'll be heading into holiday territory on the big screen as Deadline reports New Line has picked up a pitch from Brett Ratner's RatPac Entertainment that would see her starring in a Christmas movie. At this time, the plot of the holiday film is being kept under wraps, but Carey will likely be able to use her musical talents because it's said to feature the theme of how the power of music can transport you back in time to your truest, most authentic feelings.

Sounds pretty cheesy, but that's Christmas movies for ya. The script will come from David Diamond and David Weissman, who previously scripted The Family Man for Brett Ratner to direct, though the filmmaker will only be producing this time. In addition to Carey likely providing some music, the hope is for the film to have a bunch of songs from a variety of artists, so maybe this will be a musical? The cinematic exploits of Mariah Carey have consistently left something to be desired, but maybe a Christmas movie will be something she can excel at, especially with this music-driven angle.
