Malcolm McDowell talks about the Casting for „Silent Night, Deadly Night“ Remake



It was revealed last week that a remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night was in the works. The film will be directed by Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale) and stars Malcolm McDowell. In a new interview, McDowell talks about his recent casting.

Malcolm McDowell will play a small-time sheriff chasing down a killer Santa Claus and told IFC that he took on the role because he wanted to play a good guy after taking on so many villain roles: “Yeah… 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.”

Also of interest is that he hasn’t seen the original Silent Night, Deadly Night and won’t watch them for reference. We remember hearing somethings similar regarding the Halloween movies, because he didn’t want to be influenced by Donald Pleasence’s performance in the films.

The new movie is simply titled Silent Night and will be released later this year: “Silent Night is the story of a local police department’s search for the killer Santa Claus terrorizing their remote Midwestern town on Christmas Eve. McDowell will play Sheriff Cooper, a small-town hero ready for some big-time action. Film is a loose remake of the controversial 1984 horror sensation Silent Night, Deadly Night, which went on to spawn four sequels.”
