UPDATED! King is in officially. See the press release below!
Well folks it looks like the gorgeous Jaime King is hopping on that remake train once again.
You see the actress recently posted a 'tweet' over on her Twitter account teasing her addition to the SILENT NIGHT, DEADLY NIGHT reboot SILENT NIGHT. You don't have to take my word for it though. Check out the 'tweet' yourself:
"Silent Night, Holy Night @stevencmiller All is Calm, All is Bright... Nothing like Christmas in the Spring..."
Nice and subtle. I can dig it. Touche Jaime King.
Malcolm McDowell is also set to star in the slasher remake, which is coming our way from director Steven C. Miller, hence King's 'tweet.'
SILENT NIGHT tells the story of a local police department's search for the killer Santa Claus terrorizing their remote Midwestern town on Christmas Eve. McDowell will play Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action.
Now there's no telling who else will be popping up in SILENT NIGHT just yet, or anything else regarding the flick for that matter, but you can bet as soon as we hear more on the project we'll be right here to pass it along to all of you.
"Heart of Dixie"’s Jaime King will star alongside Malcolm McDowell in the upcoming horror remake SILENT NIGHT helmed by Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale) and produced by The Genre Company and Buffalo Gal Pictures. Media House Capital will co-finance production, set to begin next week in Winnipeg. The project was recently announced by Anchor Bay Films and Inferno Entertainment’s new Ember label.
King, whose past films include My Bloody Valentine and Sin City, will play Aubrey Bradimore, a Deputy Sheriff who battles the killer Santa Claus terrorizing her small Midwestern town. Fellow genre veterans Donal Logue (Shark Night 3D), Jamie Kennedy (Scream), Brendan Fehr (Final Destination), Lisa Marie (Sleepy Hollow), and Ellen Wong (Scott Pilgrim vs the World) have come aboard in supporting roles.
Vancouver-based Media House Capital, a senior debt lender to the global film industry, is providing financing against foreign sales. MHC’s managing director Aaron L. Gilbert will executive produce, with colleagues Margot Hand and Patrick Murray co-executive producing. Current MHC projects in production or post-production include Decoding Annie Parker, The English Teacher, Bomb, and A Single Shot.
SILENT NIGHT reteams King with The Genre Company following the Darren Lynn Bousman-directed Mother’s Day, set for release by Anchor Bay Films in May.
As previously announced, Steve Ruff and Thomas M. Kastelz of Empire Film & Entertainment Group will executive produce along with Jayson Rothwell and Gary Preisler. Armen Aghaiaen and D.J. Gugenheim will co-produce.
