For those who do not know, Silent Night is indeed a remake of the classic slasher flick Silent Night, Deadly Night. Steven C. Miller is directing and Malcolm McDowell is set to star. Check out what McDowell had to say about the project.
IFC spoke with the actor about his role in the remake.
McDowell has played his share of villains and he told IFC that he’s eager to play Silent Night‘s Cooper, a sheriff on the trail of the film’s killer Santa.
“I’m the good guy and I’m chasing the bad Santa,” he said. “That’s one of the reasons I wanted to do it. I’m happy to do it and I hope it’s going to be good.”
Asked if he had seen the original Silent Night, Deadly Night, McDowell told IFC he had not and did not intend to. Sometimes that is for the best. No one can really imitate what a film did in the past. Hopefully McDowell is right in hoping the film is good.
