Anchor Bay Acquires ‘Silent Night, Deadly Night’ Remake

Anchor Bay has picked up North American rights to Malcolm McDowell-starrer Silent Night, a new horror pic from The Genre Company and Inferno’s Ember Productions.

Under the Bed and Automaton Transfusion helmer Steven C. Miller will direct from a script by exec producer Jayson Rothwell. The pic is a loose remake of TriStar’s 1984 film Silent Night, Deadly Night which went on to spawn four sequels.

With principal photography scheduled for next month, Anchor Bay plans to unspool the project worldwide this holiday season.

Pic 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.

Genre’s Richard Saperstein, Brian Witten and Shara Kay will produce with Phyllis Laing of Buffalo Gal Pictures.
