Over the years, Lacey Chabert has been in a cornucopia of Hallmark roles. She has danced with Will Kemp in Christmas Waltz, and she surfed with Ektor Rivera in Groundswell. In addition, she and Brennan Elliott have solved murders, found love, and worked with Mariah Carey in the classic A Christmas Melody.
However, there is a very special movie that the Wedding Veil star wants to make for Hallmark. What is Lacey’s dream?
This Is Lacey Chabert’s Dream Hallmark Movie
Recently, Lacey Chabert spoke to Vulture about working with Hallmark. Although the publication was very focused on Candace Cameron Bure’s defection to Great American Family, and whether the new network wanted to “poach her,” Lacey was very focused on the positive. That includes talking about a dream Hallmark movie that she has not made.
Although the All Of My Heart star has done over 30 movies for Hallmark, there is one she dreams of doing. This is a movie idea that is personal to her heart. Like the many Hallmark characters she has previously portrayed, she wants to go home. That home is in Purvis, Mississippi.
It’s been a longtime dream of mine to tell a real southern story where we have accents and everything. When I moved from Mississippi, I had a very thick southern accent, which is now, as you can hear, not the case. I have a few different ideas, but my favorite one is a story centered around southern characters in a Steel Magnolias kind of way, which is one of my favorite movies. Depicting the culture of living in the South and growing up there and film it in Purvis.
The Haul Out The Holly star also revealed that when she was a small child, “everyone in town” supported her dream of acting. This even continued after the family moved to New York.
Therefore, it sounds like this is a special tribute to the people and place where she grew up.
Could The Mean Girls Star Write Her Own Script?
Could Lacey Chabert pen that dream Steel Magnolias-type of a script? It doesn’t appear that she could. She revealed that although she has co-written a script, she admits that she doesn’t know if she is “capable of writing an entire script.”
However, she is interested in directing. Chabert loves to “watch the process.” Moreover, she thinks that this could be something she may do in “at some point” in her busy career.
Meanwhile, she is currently working on developing projects. Lacey revealed that they do start developing “pretty far in advance.” Moreover, she may develop a project from the beginning, or if someone brings her something, she may “jump on as a producer” and continue developing the project.
