1984 Silent Night, Deadly Night film remake in the works!


It looks like Hollywood has yet another classic movie remake in the works. According to Vartiety the Genre Company and Inferno’s Ember Productions are unwrapping the Christmas themed horror flick “Silent Night”.

Malcolm McDowell (Halloween) is set to star as the Sheriff and Steven C. Miller will direct the loose remake of TriStar’s 1984 film “Silent Night, Deadly Night.” Anchor Bay has picked up North American distribution rights to the project, which begins principal photography next month and will unspool this holiday season.

The original picture was about a young boy who watched his parents be brutally murdered by a man in a Santa outfit. After suffering abuse at a Catholic orphanage, the boy takes on the persona of the murderer and goes on a killing spree of his own. So far, details on the remake say that the film will center on a Midwestern town’s local law enforcement and their search for a killer dressed as Santa Claus who terrorizes people on Christmas Eve.

The original “Silent Night” spawned four sequels.
