For the 2022 end-of-year celebrations, Santa Claus gave us an astonishing gift: Violent Night, a film that lives up to its name, and which will have the right to a sequel!

A Santa Claus like no other
Tommy Wirkola, the Norwegian director who isn’t really known for producing tender films, revealed at the end of last year a certain Violent Night. If the film means nothing to you, know that it is more or me of a Mom I missed the plane !, except that little Kevin is replaced here by an angry Santa Claus… yes, you read that right. This Santa Claus, played on screen by David Harbour, Sheriff Jim Hopper in Stranger Things, will indeed have to make fists speak to save a child’s Christmas. And what we can say is that the whole thing is particularly bloody.
Today, in a recent interview conducted by The Wrap, we learn that a sequel to this film released on December 2, 2022 could see the light of day, and this, much faster than we think.
Already a sequel to Violent Night!
It was Tommy Wirkola himself who admitted in the columns of The Wrap that he is actively working on the sequel to Violent Night alongside Pat Casey and Josh Miller, two screenwriters who are also working on the third chapter of Sonic’s cinematic adventures.
We have some ideas, Pat, Josh, me and the producers. We talked about where we want to go and what we want to see. Tommy Wirkola
The director adds at the same time that this sequel will return more in depth to the story of this outdated Santa Claus.
There are things we left hanging, like the North Pole, Mrs. Claus, the elves, etc. But story-wise, I think we’ve got a really, really cool idea that expands the universe and the scope, while still keeping that tone that we love from the first one. Tommy Wirkola
And Violent Night was not the most popular film of the end of last year, it must be said that there was a certain Avatar 2 in front of him, the feature film still had good results at the box office. In particular, it brought in a total of 75 million dollars while its budget was, for its part, rather meager, around 20 million dollars.
For the moment, this sequel to Violent Night obviously has no release date, but we can already hope to see it land for Christmas 2024.
