In June 2019, it was announced that Jason Blum would be producing a remake of the 1974 film Black Christmas (1974) 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.
The original film took place while Christmas break in 1974, where a group of sorority sisters, make plans for the holiday until the strange anonymous phone calls are beginning to put them on edge. When Clare disappears, they contact the police, who don’t express much concern. Meanwhile Jess is planning to get an abortion, but boyfriend Peter is very much against it. The police finally begin to get concerned when a 13-year-old girl is found dead in the park.
In the new movie Black Christmas (2019), 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.

She has already previously worked with Blumhouse on the Into the Dark (2018– ) TV series for Hulu, after having directed thriller and mystery films Green (2011) and Always Shine (2016). She has also written the screenplay, together with April Wolfe. Cary Elwes, Imogen Poots, Brittany O’Grady, Aleyse Shannon, Ben Black, Simon Mead and Caleb Eberhardt are starring.
Filming began on June 23, 2019, and concluded on July 31, 2019. The movie is scheduled to be released the 13 December 2019. Here you can watch the first trailer for Black Christmas (2019).
