Silent Night, the remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night, is currently filming and we have some new behind-the-scenes photos and casting news. The Winnipeg Free Press was on the set recently and reported on who would be playing the killer in the movie:

"In the movie Silent Night, the killer dressed as Santa Claus inspires not visions of sugarplums, but something decidedly more nightmarish as he slices his way through the naughty citizenry of Cryer, Wisconsin. The Genre Company revealed that the role of the killer would be played by Winnipeg actor-stunt co-ordinator Rick Skene.

It's a particularly delicious change-up for Skene, the son of former Free Press theatre critic Reg Skene. Rick was the stunt co-ordinator of the direct-to-DVD horror film Wrong Turn 4 in which his stuntman-actor sons Sean and Daniel Skene played two of the film's three mutant cannibal villains, Three Finger and One Eye." 

Silent Night is directed by Steven C. Miller (The Aggression Scale) and stars Malcolm McDowell, Jamie King, Donal Logue, Jamie Kennedy, Brendan Fehr, Lisa Marie, and Ellen Wong.

Synopsis: "...the slashing begins on a snowy Christmas Eve in Cryer, WI. The normally quiet town is bustling with activity as the the residents are getting ready for the big day. The events take place around the towns annual Santa Parade, which has brought a record number of Santas to town. Deputy Sheriff Aubrey Bradimore (King) is stuck reluctantly working the night shift, dealing with all of the drunken Santas, road closures, and stressed out locals — but things are about to take a deadly turn. A vicious serial killer, dressed as Santa Claus, has made his own “naughty list” and anyone on it is in big trouble. As the body count rises, Aubrey races to discover the killer’s true identity – but in a town full of Santas, shady characters and dark secrets, finding the real murderer will take more then a Christmas miracle."
