Mortal Kombat web-series director Kevin Tancharoen is set to develop a new action film project called The Guns of Christmas Past. The movie sounds as awesome as the title, and it was obviously inspired by A Christmas Carol, but with an action-packed twist. In this version of the story we follow a retired hitman who "returns to Chicago on Christmas Eve to avenge the death of his friend. During his mission, he must fight his way past three unlikely adversaries from his past, present, and future. In the process, he finds out who he really is."
I absolutely love this concept. The script for the film was written by Andrew Hilton, and this seems like a perfect project for Tancharoen to develop. I enjoyed what he did with the Mortal Kombat series, and his talents should translate well to a movie like The Guns of Christmas Past.
