Black Christmas is an upcoming American slasher film directed by Sophia Takal, and written by Takal and April Wolfe. It is a remake of the 1974 film Black Christmas and stars Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O'Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt.
During Christmas break, female sorority students at Hawthorne College fight back against a mysterious serial killer who has targeted them.
In June 2019, it was announced that Jason Blum would be producing a remake of the 1974 film Black Christmas through his studio Blumhouse Productions, alongside Adam Hendricks from the studio Divide/Conquer, and Ben Cosgrove. In addition, Greg Gilreath and Zac Locke, also from Divide/Conquer, would serve as executive producers for the film. Blumhouse plans for the remake to be a modern take on the original film with the synopsis reading: "Hawthorne College is quieting down for the holidays. One by one, sorority girls on campus are being killed by an unknown stalker. But the killer is about to discover that this generation's young women aren't willing to become hapless victims as they mount a fight to the finish."
Sophia Takal signed on to direct the film, having previously worked with Blum on his Into The Dark series for Hulu, while Imogen Poots, Aleyse Shannon, Brittany O'Grady, Lily Donoghue, and Caleb Eberhardt signed on in starring roles. That same month, Cary Elwes also joined the cast, playing a main but undisclosed role in the film.
Filming began in New Zealand on June 24, 2019. Production will largely take place around Dunedin and Oamaru, with the University of Otago providing the setting. Filming concluded on July 31, 2019.
