Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house there are robbers, hostages, and Santa Claus who is seeing red in ‘Violent Night.’
The film, which feels like a mix between Home Alone and John Wick, stars John Leguizamo as the head of mercenaries who breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage.
However, what seems like a simple robbery, has one problem, Santa Claus (David Harbour). The team isn’t prepared for Santa Clause who shows them that old “Saint” Nick is no saint.
Directed by Tommy Wirkola, Violent Night also stars Cam Gigandet, Alex Hassell, Alexis Louder, Edi Patterson, and Beverly D’Angelo.
Violent Night is produced by 87North’s Kelly McCormick David Leitch and Guy Danella. The original screenplay is by Pat Casey & Josh Miller, the writers of Sonic the Hedgehog. The film’s executive producer is Marc S. Fischer.
Universal Pictures will distribute the film in all territories.
