The creative team behind one of last year’s biggest hits is coming back for more with The Wrap’s Drew Taylor reporting limited details confirming a sequel to Tommy Wirkola’s Violent Night. The report defers to quotes from Wirkola who verified the return of lead actor David Harbour in the role of a kick-ass Norse mythology-based Santa Claus who in the first film descends with a vengeance on a gang of home invaders led by John Leguizamo.

Leave it to Dead Snow and Dead Snow 2 helmer Tommy Wirkola to set the tone accordingly with a dystopian tale that centers actress Noomi Rapace right in the thick of it all. What Happened To Monday is set to premiere on August 18 on Netflix and with a full-fledged trailer in its wake as of a week ago which I’m only just now catching wind of.
While Halloween isn’t for another ten months, it’s never too late for moviegoers to check out a zombie flick on the big screen-a point made invariably with the forthcoming four-night Park City At Midnight premiere of writer and director Tommy Wirkola‘s sequelized Norwegian Nazi zombie slasher gem, Dead Snow: Red vs. Dead. Following up the events from its 2009 predecessor, actors and co-writers Vegar Hoel and Stig Frode Henriksen return for the sequel which sees its lead character, Martin (Hoel) back and ready to brawl with undead Nazi scum. Martin Starr, Ørjan Gamst, Ingrid Haas and Jocelyn DeBoer round out the cast.
