From 87North, the producers of Nobody, John Wick, Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2, and Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw comes a dark as coal holiday action-comedy Violent Night starring “Stranger Things” star David Harbour as Santa. And the new trailer teases why you don’t want to get on his naughty list.
“When a team of mercenaries breaks into a wealthy family compound on Christmas Eve, taking everyone inside hostage, the team isn’t prepared for a surprise combatant: Santa Claus is on the grounds, and he’s about to show why this Nick is no saint.
The film also stars Emmy winner John Leguizamo (John Wick), Cam Gigandet (Without Remorse), Alex Hassell (Cowboy Bebop), Alexis Louder (The Tomorrow War), Edi Patterson (The Righteous Gemstones), and Beverly D’Angelo (National Lampoon’s Vacation franchise).
Directed by Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola (Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters, Dead Snow franchise), Violent Night is produced by 87North’s Kelly McCormick David Leitch, and Guy Danella. The original screenplay is by Pat Casey and Josh Miller. The film’s executive producer is Marc S. Fischer.
Universal Pictures will unleash Violent Night in theaters on December 2, 2022.
