Movies go mad over Santa.

Byline: By JOHN MILLAR

HOLLYWOOD is about to go crackers over Santa... even though it is still summer.

Two films starring the big guy in the red suit are in production... both with very different Santas.

Tim Allen is back as the hero dad who transforms into Father Christmas in Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause.

This time he has to fight to save Christmas from Jack Frost.

And in Joe Clause, which stars Paul Giamatti, Santa ditches his usual jolly manner.

Giamatti, now starring in fantasy flick Lady In The Water, said: "In this movie Santa is a bit of a wreck, he's stressed out.

"He's too fat and can't breathe, so he is really a neurotic Santa Claus.

"The idea is that it is a stressful job."
