Cary Elwes Joins Black Christmas Remake

-

Cary Elwes (the Saw franchise, The Princess Bride) has joined the upcoming Blumhouse Productions remake of the horror film Black Christmas, according to Deadline. He will reportedly play a main role, though there are no details yet.

Blumhouse recently took Halloween to that franchise’s highest performance and now returns to another genre classic with an upgrade engineered for today: Black Christmas.


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.

This December, on Friday the 13th, ring in the holidays by dreaming of a Black Christmas.

From director Sophia Takal (Always Shine), who wrote the script with April Wolfe (Widower), comes a bold new take on the 1974 horror classic starring Imogen Poots (Green RoomThe Art of Defense), Aleyse Shannon (Charmed), Brittany O’Grady (Star), Lily Donoghue (The GoldbergsJane the Virgin) and Caleb Eberhardt (Broadway’s Choir Boy).

Black Christmas is produced by Jason Blum (HalloweenSplit) for his Blumhouse Productions, by Ben Cosgrove (The Good GermanRumor Has It) and by Adam Hendricks (CamBloodlineLucky) for Divide/Conquer. Hendricks’ partners in Divide/Conquer, Greg Gilreath (CamBloodline) and Zac Locke (Adopt-A-HighwayBloodline), will executive produce.

Elwes is known for playing Wesley in The Princess Bride, the Saw franchise and will appear in the third season of Stranger Things.
