Silent Night, Deadly Night still manages to stand out in a decade known for controversial and outlandish horror movies. The cult favorite went on to spawn four sequels and a remake in 2012. The franchise is also familiar with younger audiences. Even people who have not seen any of the films are aware of some of its most infamous scenes.
Orwo Studios and Black Hanger Studios (JEEPERS CREEPERS: REBORN) announced they have acquired the remake rights to the seminal slasher. The original film’s producers Scott Schneid and Dennis Whitehead of Wonderwheel Entertainment will join Orwo in bringing an exciting new vision to modern movie audiences in 2022.
Wonderwheel says, “The continued desire for horror content and the ongoing success of the genre meant it was the perfect time to be able to offer up this chilling revival of the iconic title.” Masi adds, “We are thrilled to be working with the original producers as well as Orwo and Black Hangar and are committed to honoring nostalgia for the original while offering surprises for new audiences to discover and embrace.”
