Back to the Future stars, Christopher Lloyd and Lea Thompson are set to appear in a new time-travelling movie – only this time it’s set at Christmas! The actors are amongst the cast of a new feature film called Next Stop, Christmas, which is due to air on the Hallmark Channel in November.
Next Stop, Christmas stars Lyndsy Fonseca, Chandler Massey, Erika Slezak, Matt Walton, Paige Herschell and of course, Lloyd and Thompson. The movie will air as part of Hallmark’s Countdown to Christmas event, which is an annual programming block where Hallmark showcases a run of brand-new holiday movies.
According to Hallmark, Next Stop, Christmas follows the story of Angie (as played by Fonseca) who “is a successful surgeon in New York City but finds herself wondering what her life would be like if she had married her former boyfriend Tyler (Eric Freeman), who is now a successful sportscaster.
“Angie takes the train home to spend the holiday with her family but when she arrives discovers it’s inexplicably 10 years earlier. At first, she’s naturally disoriented by her unexpected time travel but slowly acclimates.
“With the advice of the train’s enigmatic conductor (Lloyd), Angie navigates her visit to this Christmas past as she tries to return to the present. As she works to figure out how to get back to the future, Angie has the chance to reconnect with her family; she even teams up with her sister Kristen (Herschell) to help her parents, Evelyn (Thompson) and Marty (Walton), rekindle their romance.
“Along the way, Angie gains a new perspective and discovers what – and who – is truly important to her.”
Next Stop, Christmas is directed by Dustin Rikert, from a script by Kari Drake and Duane Poole. Andrew Gernhard is executive producer on the picture, while Rikert is on producer duties along with Colin Theys. Devyn Isaacson is a line producer.
Next Stop, Christmas is from Crown Media Productions, LLC. The movie was filmed in Essex, Connecticut in the US.
