Mortal Kombat: Legacy's Kevin Tancharoen to helm The Guns Of Christmas Past
Mortal Kombat: Legacy director Kevin Tancharoen is teaming up with Voltage Pictures for an interesting new project. Deadline is reporting Tancharoen will direct the action flick THE GUNS OF CHRISTMAS PAST from a script by Andrew Hilton.
The planned film is loosely based on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and will follow "a retired hitman who returns to Chicago on Christmas Eve to avenge the death of his friend, and during his mission, he must fight his way past three unlikely adversaries from his past, present, and future."
Besides Mortal Kombat: Legacy, Kevin Tancharoen also directed 2009's FAME and GLEE: THE 3D CONCERT MOVIE, and was going to be behind the camera for the MORTAL KOMBAT feature film reboot before he left the project last year.
I'm not the biggest fan of most Christmas movies, but a violent version of A Christmas Carol involving a hitman? Yeah, I can get behind that. Who would you like to see cast in THE GUNS OF CHRISTMAS PAST?
