The full official trailer of Silent Night has been released! The action-thriller from director John Woo is essentially dialogue-free. It’s out in theaters on December 1st. Check out the trailer below, and some screencaps and the official poster in our gallery!
Joel has booked another thriller! He is set to star in Neill Blomkamp’s They Found Us, an alien abduction thriller. It will begin production in Australia later this year. So exciting!
The film to be fully financed by Stuart Ford’s fast-growing independent content studio, AGC Studios, is based on an original screenplay by Jeremy Slater, whose credits include Moon Knight, Fantastic Four, The Exorcist, The Lazarus Effect and The Umbrella Academy. It will follow a father (Kinnaman) and his daughter Kaylee as they undertake a camping trip in the Utah wilderness to heal their broken relationship. After being attacked by a hostile extraterrestrial lifeform, their lives — not just their relationship — wind up at stake, as they fight with a humanoid beast to stop their abduction to an unknown and terrifying alien world.
Wyck Godfrey and Marty Bowen will produce the film for Temple Hill Entertainment (Smile, Twilight franchise), with Ford on board to exec produce alongside Temple Hill’s John Fischer. AGC International will launch sales in Cannes, with UTA Independent Film Group co-repping U.S. rights.
“We’re delighted to extend our relationship with Neill, who is a master of the sci-fi and horror genres,” said Ford in a statement. “Jeremy Slater’s taut terrifying screenplay is a perfect match for Neill’s visual talents and the proven audience-pleasing instincts of our partners at Temple Hill.”
Added Godfrey, “We’re so excited to be working with Neill and Joel and everyone at AGC to bring THEY FOUND US to life. The otherworldly horror and breathless suspense at the center of Jeremy’s script is merely the backdrop for an all too relatable and emotional story of a father and teenage daughter grappling with their differences and working through their estrangement.”Deadline
Joel is set to star in another action-thriller movie entitled The Silent Hour, which will be directed by Brad Anderson. No additional casting has been announced, but the film will begin production in early 2023.
The Boston-set crime drama will see Kinnaman play a police detective who suffers a workplace accident that leaves him hearing impaired. Sixteen months later, as an interpreter for the police department, he battles a team of corrupt cops trying to eliminate a deaf murder witness in an apartment building.The Hollywood Reporter
Joel is set to star in a new psychological thriller, Sympathy for the Devil, alongside Nicolas Cage. Production has already started in Las Vegas. This sounds like another interesting project!
Written by Luke Paradise (“Lost on a Mountain in Maine”), “Sympathy for the Devil” follows “The Driver” (Kinnaman) as he finds himself in a high-stakes game of cat and mouse after being forced to drive a mysterious man known as “The Passenger” (Cage). That sets things up for a white-knuckle ride.
“This is a tour de force featuring two incredible actors,” said producer Allan Ungar. “As an acclaimed filmmaker, Yuval has assembled the perfect cast and brought a unique and gritty vision to this film that will be sure to capture audiences.”Variety
Silent Night recently finished its principal photography in Mexico City, and Variety has shared an official first look still at Joel as Godlock! No official release date yet, but I hope we get a teaser/trailer soon.
In “Silent Night,” Godlock (played by Joel Kinnaman) is a father on a mission to avenge his young son who was tragically caught in the crossfire of gang violence on Christmas Eve. Shot and nearly killed while in pursuit of the murderers, Godlock vows to avenge his son by any means necessary.
