Silent Night, Deadly Night remake... starring Malcolm McDowell
 
Quote:

In the early ’80s, the horror film Silent Night, Deadly Night caused an uproar, but now it just more remake fodder.

Variety says that a new version, called simply Silent Night, will shoot next month and be released at the end of the year. Steven C. Miller, director of recent SXSW entry The Aggression Scale, will direct from a script by Jayson Rothwell, who will be exec producer. Rothwell also wrote Disney’s The Order of the Seven.

The film follows “a local police department’s search for the killer Santa Claus terrorizing a remote Midwestern town on Christmas Eve. McDowell will play Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action.”

PUUUUUUUNIIIIIIIISHHHHHHHH!

I been wanting to catch The Aggression Scale for some time now...looks pretty good.

I'm not "big" on remakes, but this one has some interesting driving forces behind it. This one could have potential.

Is this a belated April Fool's joke, I hope. I don't know, even though Malcolm McDowell is in it, I wish Hollywood would quit remaking movies.

That's one good thing that could come from this hopefully.

If it does mean a possible blu-ray release of the uncut original, I'm all for it.

At least they won't share the same name and it's a going be loosely based on the original.

looks like this is coming to dvd and blu-ray from anchor bay DEC 4TH http://videoeta.com/movie/140246

I wasn't all for it at first. But than I saw "The Aggression Scale" and loved it. So I'm now all for this. Especially since it's a loose remake.

The Blu-ray & DVD are both up for pre-order at Amazon:

http://www.amazon.com/Silent-Night-B...dp/B009IV2ZCI/
http://www.amazon.com/Silent-Night/dp/B009IV2Z7S/

They're also "re-releasing" the original 1 & 2 on DVD: http://www.amazon.com/Silent-Night-D...dp/B009IV2Z3M/

...of course no Blu-ray for the original film, but that's typical of Anchor Bay. :eek2:

Better that than not re-releasing them on DVD at all.
