Goldberg for The Christmas Pearl

Whoopi Goldberg is to play a ghost in a new festive film.

The 58-year-old American actress will also executive produce The Christmas Pearl, reported Variety.

The movie follows an elderly woman who is the matriarch of a family who have got together for Christmas at her stately home.

When her usual maid has to leave, "a Christmas miracle presents itself as Pearl, the maid to the matriarch's grandmother, who comes back to the family as a ghost".

Felix Alcala will direct, with production due to start in June.

Whoopi, who won the Best Supporting Actress Oscar for 1990's Ghost, has several other films coming up including Big Stone Gap and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
