Mariah Carey has the market covered when it comes to holiday songs – does "All I Want for Christmas" ring a bell? – and now she's taking the reins of a feel-good festive film.

The Grammy winner is set to make her directorial debut on the Hallmark Channel's Mariah Carey's Christmas Project, which will start shooting in October and screen in December as part of the network's Countdown to Christmas.

Carey will also costar in the holiday movie, which marks her first acting role since 2013's The Butler.
