The director of ‘Silent Night’ (Violent Night), Tommy Wirkola, cHe confirmed that a sequel to David Harbor’s vehicle is already in the works, as the two parties are in talks to finalize agreements before filming. Since it’s still early in the process, as Wirkola says, the script is in the early days of treatment.
Asked by TheWrap, Wirkola confirmed a sequel.
“Yeah. We’re talking about that and at the moment we’re making deals and getting everything in order. We’ve got time to really figure out the script and figure out the story. And we’ve got some ideas, me, Pat, Josh and the producers, we’ve been talking about where we want to take it and what we want to see”.
Wirkola confirmed that it will continue with Pat Casey and Josh Miller, the writers behind the first film. According to the director, some things were removed from the first movie that they will expand this timeincluding Santa’s house and the introduction of Mrs. Claus.
“There are things that we left in the montage like the North Pole, Mrs. Claus, the elves. But story-wise, I think we’ve got a really cool idea that expands the world and the scope, but still has that tone that we’ve loved ever since. first”.
In an interview last year, Miller said that Santa’s elves were initially part of the team’s script for Universalthough they ended up being axed due to budget constraints.
“The elves were part of our pitch, but once we sold the movie, that was one of the two general notes we got from Universal. It was something as simple as this: ‘We really can’t afford to show the North Pole, like this. let’s not do it.”
