Mariah Carey Christmas Movie in Development

Mariah Carey Christmas Movie in Development - FDRMX
‘Tis the season! A Mariah Carey Christmas film is currently in development. The film doesn’t have a title yet, but it will be produced by Brett Ratner (Hercules and Tower Heist) and New Line Cinema. “It’s a little bit about how music can take you back in time. It will be everything you hope a Christmas movie with Mariah Carey would be,” Ratner told Entertainment Weekly. The Christmas film will be written by David Diamond and David Weissman, who both wrote the screenplay for The Family Man. The soundtrack will feature songs by Mariah Carey, who released the most successful Christmas album in music history in 1994.

Mariah Carey‘s Merry Christmas album was the pop singer’s fourth studio album. It featured recreations of popular Christmas songs such as “Silent Night,” “O Holy Night,” and “Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town.” The first single released from the album was “All I Want for Christmas Is You,” which initially peaked at Number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100. Since its release in 1994, the song continues to make an impact on the Billboard chart every Christmas season.

“All I Want for Christmas” also impacts the music charts in Japan, United Kingdom, Australia, Germany, and several other places. Last year, the single reached the top of the US Holiday 100, and it also went to Number 1 in Hungary and Belgium. “All I Want for Christmas” has sold over 14 million copies, becoming one of the top-selling singles of all time. The follow-up single “Joy to the World,” was recreated as an electronic dance song. It reached the US Hot Dance Club Play chart at Number 17. It also continues to impact music charts during the Holiday season.

Merry Christmas has sold more than five million copies in the US, and over fifteen million copies worldwide. The project entered the Billboard 200 Albums chart at Number 30, by selling over 40,000 copies in its first week. Each week, Merry Christmas continued to increase its popularity. By the fifth week, the project sold over 200,000 copies. After just six weeks on the chart, the album was certified Gold. Merry Christmas is widely considered as the best Holiday album in pop culture.
