Whoopi Goldberg to Star in 'The Christmas Pearl' (1)

Whoopi Goldberg is working on a new Christmas movie, which will see her back to the world of the supernatural as a ghost.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her role as a con artist pretending to speak to the dead in the 1990 film “Ghost,” is set to star and executive produce “The Christmas Pearl.”

The indie film is about a 93-year-old matriarch of a South Carolina family who has gathered everyone for a tension-filled Christmas at her home. When her usual maid went away, Pearl (the maid to the matriarch’s grandmother) comes back from the dead to help with the family’s Christmas festivities.

The film will be produced by Jeff Kranzdorf, David Belafonte and Julius R. Nasso and exec produced by Goldberg, her producing partner Tom Leonardis and Jeff Sackman.

Production is set to begin in June in New York City and South Carolina with TV director Felix Alcala helming from a script by Anne Rapp, based on the Dorothea Benton Frank novel.
