Apparently Christian Kane is working on a new movie. The family comedy is called “Southern Christmas” and currently shooting in Guthrie, Oklahoma.
The film, directed by Harvey Lowry, is a comedy about two girls: Kara is a rich teenage girl that has always had everything money can buy. Jessie is a poor tomboy with lots of attitude. When seated next to each other on a plane, they strike up an unlikely friendship. They soon find they’re both on their way to spend the holidays with relatives they’ve never met. Since neither really want to go, they devise a plan to switch places and have fun with it until they’re sent back home. Problems arise when they find they actually like the families they meet. With a little help from Santa and a Christmas wish, they find the families they have always wanted.
Christian will be playing the part of Jeff Gentry. The casting call on Oklahoma’s Movie Makers‘ Facebook page describes the role as follows:
