The latest “untitled project” from the purveyor of all things spooky, Blumhouse, has been announced as the second remake of the Bob Clark classic Black Christmas. Read on for details.
From the Press Release:
Blumhouse, the leading brand in horror, recently took Halloween to that franchise’s highest performance and now returns to another genre classic with an upgrade engineered for today: Black Christmas.
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.
This December, on Friday the 13th, ring in the holidays by dreaming of a Black Christmas.
From director Sophia Takal (Always Shine) from a 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, Ben Cosgrove (The Good German, Rumor Has It), and 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.
