the shingle behind "300," has optioned the rights to the graphic novel "The Last Christmas," written by actor-comedian Brian Posehn and Gerry Duggan. The company's Gianni Nunnari will produce, while Craig J. Flores will executive produce.

The story follows Santa Claus as he withdraws from normal life and turns his back on Christmas. When he emerges from seclusion, he has to find a way to save the world, and Christmas, from being overrun by demons, zombies and other bad guys.

No writer has been tapped to adapt.

Hollywood Gang has several projects in the works, including "Ocean," a comic book miniseries by Warren Ellis; Frank Miller's "Ronin," which has Sylvain White attached to direct; and "The Wild Geese," based on Daniel Carney's unpublished novel "The Thin White Line."

Posehn, repped by Gersh, is a regular on Comedy Central's "The Sarah Silverman Program" and co-wrote "Run, Ronnie Run."

Interesting. Hopefully the team that brought us Elf will partner up with the people that brought us Bad Santa.

I like how they leave out the part that Posehn's agent is his wife. Or at least she was. Not that that's relevant to anything. I'm a nerd for knowing that.
