Holiday cult classic Silent Night Deadly Night has been selected to get a 2012 remake by The Genre Company and Ember Productions. The original 1984 SNDN has been a cult hit for it’s gratuitous violence and nudity, perpetrated in the guise of a Santa Suit. There are even four sequels to the original Silent Night Deadly Night movies: Silent Night, Deadly Night Part 2 (1987), Silent Night, Deadly Night 3: Better Watch Out! (1989), Silent Night, Deadly Night 4: Initiation (1990), Silent Night, Deadly Night 5: The Toy Maker (1991).
There is no word yet on who will play the deadly Santa Clause, but apparently Malcolm McDowell – best known for playing Alex in A Clockwork Orange – will play the police detective trying to catch the killer Santa. So that could be awesome.[via Variety]
