David Harbor to star in holiday action movie “Violent Night”
Not a silent night or a holy night, but a “Violent Night”. “Stranger Things” actor David Harbor is set to star in a new action flick with a vacation twist from the producers of “John Wick”.
âViolent Nightâ is set at Universal, and the studio has dated the film for release on December 2, 2022.
Tommy Wirkola (“Dead Snow” franchise) is directing “Violent Night,” which is described only as a “charcoal black holiday thriller that says you should always bet on red.” Pat Casey and Josh Miller, the writers of “Sonic the Hedgehog,” wrote the original screenplay.
David Leitch and Kelly McCormick of 87North, who are behind “John Wick”, “Deadpool 2”, “Atomic Blonde”, “Hobbs & Shaw” and “Nobody” with Bob Odenkirk, are producing “Violent Night”. Universal Pictures will distribute the film in all territories.
In its Tuesday announcement, the studio also shifted an untitled Universal Event movie one week from May 26, 2023 to May 19, 2023.
David Harbor was most recently seen in this year’s Marvel movie “Black Widow” and will reprise his role as Hopper in the upcoming fourth season of “Stranger Things” on Netflix. He will also star in a family horror film for Netflix and director Christopher Landon titled “We Have a Ghost” alongside Anthony Mackie and Tig Notaro.
