Orson Welles narrates Christmas Tails

Remember how Bryan Singer restored footage of Marlon Brando for his Superman Returns ?

Seems he got other filmmakers thinking about making films using voices from the Other Side, as Orson Welles is set to be resurrected for a new flick called Christmas Tails .

The legendary actor, who died in 1985 and was played recently by Christian McKay in Me And Orson Welles , reportedly narrated a book called Christmas Tails by friend Robert X Leed before his death.

The tapes of that recording have just been found, so Drac Studios are pressing forward and using them as the foundations for a big screen version of the flick.

Christmas Tails follows Santa’s dog, who saves Christmas one year by grouping together a collection of dogs in the North when all of Santa’s reindeer become ill.

The flick will be forged using live-action and CGI, using a script written by Todd Tucker, who directed the similarly canine-centric, soon-to-be-released Monster Mutt .

Expect to see Tails in 3D around Christmas 2011.

Awesome or creepy?
