The Karate kid, Ralph Macchio, to star in a Lifetime holiday movie

According to the The Hollywood Reporter Ralph Macchio has been tapped to star in a Lifetime holiday movie. In the Christmas-themed drama Holiday Spin, Garrett Clayton will co-star as rebellious teen Blake, who is forced to go live with his father after his mother is killed in a car accident.

Macchio will play Ruben, Blake’s father, who runs a famed dance studio that has fallen on hard times and is preparing his star student — and future step-daughter, Pia, for the annual Christmas Eve ballroom dance competition, the Holiday Spin, when Blake arrives. After Pia and her partner have a falling out, Blake reluctantly steps in, much to Ruben’s delight — until he realizes that the new dance duo are starting to fall for one another.

Feel the Noise’s Albert Leon will pen the project, which is being executive produced by Safe House’s Scott W. Anderson. Jon Rosenbaum (Zeke and Luther) will direct, with Christian Bruyère (Lifetime’s On Strike for Christmas) on board to produce through HS Productions.
