The nonstop, action-packed thrill ride stars Joel Kinnaman (“The Killing”, RoboCop, Suicide Squad), with Catalina Sandino Moreno (Barbarians, “The Affair”), and Grammy award-winning musician and actor Scott Mescudi (aka “Kid Cudi”) in a revolutionary piece of filmmaking from legendary director Woo and the producer of John Wick. The gritty revenge tale follows a tormented father (Kinnaman) who witnesses his young son die when caught in a gang’s crossfire on Christmas Eve. While recovering from a wound that costs him his voice, he makes vengeance his life’s mission and embarks on a punishing training regimen in order to avenge his son’s death. Full of Woo’s signature style, Silent Night redefines the action genre with visceral, thrill-a-minute storytelling.
Silent Night is directed by the legendary action Chinese filmmaker John Woo, who has led several notable action films including A Better Tomorrow (1986), The Killer (1989), Hard Boiled (1992), and Red Cliff (2008/2009). His Hollywood films include Hard Target (1993), Broken Arrow (1996), Face/Off (1997), and Mission: Impossible 2 (2000).
In addition to Joel Kinnaman, the film also stars Scott Mescudi, Harold Torres, and Catalina Sandino Moreno. The film will be released on December 1st.
