Cary Elwes Cast in the Remake of the 1974 Holiday Horror Film BLACK CHRISTMAS
Cary Elwes (The Princess Bride, Saw) has been cast in Blumhouse’s remake of the 1974 holiday slasher horror thriller Black Christmas.
There aren’t any details on who Elwes will be playing, but it’s said that he plays a main part of the story. I like Elwes so it’s always great to see him land a new movie role. Hopefully, this one turns out to be a fun project for him.
He will join the previously cast Imogen Poots (Green Room), Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O’Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt. Here’s the synopsis:
Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation’s young women aren’t willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish.
The new remake will be directed by Sophia Takal, who helmed the great indie horror-drama Always Shine. The film will be shot in New Zealand and it will be released in theaters on December 13th, which is apparently a week shy of the 45th anniversary of the original film’s U.S. release.
