I had no idea about this remake until news hit about it a few days ago that Jamie King and Malcolm McDowell were cast in it as a Deputy Sheriff and the Sheriff who is also a small town hero respectively.
Now there’s word that Donal Logue, Jamie Kennedy, Tim Burton’s former squeeze, Lisa Marie, a gent named Brendan Fehr, and the lovely Ellen Wong are going to be in this remake now titled Silent Night (why do they have to cut the title down? Just leave it as is. It’s great.)
I know the original had an 18 year old man as the demented Santa who screams “NAUGHTY!!”, but I really really REALLY hope that the new demented Santa is played by Donal Logue.
