Cary Elwes joins Blumhouse’s Black Christmas remake
Cary Elwes (Saw franchise, Stranger Things, The Princess Bride) has joined Blumhouse’s Black Christmas remake, Deadline has confirmed. Elwes, whose credits also include Robin Hood: Men in Tights, Billionaire Boys Club, and the upcoming The Hyperions, will play a main part in the movie.
Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.
From director Sophia Takal (Always Shine) from the script she wrote with April Wolfe (Widower), comes a bold new take on the 1974 horror classic starring Imogen Poots (Green Room, The Art of Defense), Aleyse Shannon (Charmed), Brittany O’Grady (Star), Lily Donoghue (The Goldbergs, Jane the Virgin) and Caleb Eberhardt (Broadway’s Choir Boy).
Black Christmas is produced by Jason Blum (Halloween, Split) for his Blumhouse Productions, by Ben Cosgrove (The Good German, Rumor Has It) and by Adam Hendricks (Cam, Bloodline, Lucky) for Divide/Conquer. Hendricks’ partners in Divide/Conquer, Greg Gilreath (Cam, Bloodline) and Zac Locke (Adopt-A-Highway, Bloodline), will executive produce.
Filming will kick off soon in New Zealand, with a release date scheduled for December 13. Buy the original film here.
