Kevin Tancharoen (Mortal Kombat: Legacy) has signed on to direct The Guns of Christmas Past. The script by Andrew Hilton is very loosely based on the classic Charles Dickens tale A Christmas Carol. The story centers on a retired hitman in Chicago on Christmas Eve. The hitman must fight three unlikely adversaries from his past, present, and future while on a mission to avenge the death of a friend. It sounds like a fun premise—after seeing his work in the Mortal Kombat realm, I am happy to see Tancharoen get a chance with a feature budget to make an action movie with a goofy story.
Deadline reports Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier will produce The Guns of Christmas Past for Voltage Pictures.
