Elements of the project were first revealed earlier today. This is the whole story.
Marv Films’ Matthew Vaughn (Rocketman) will finance and produce the project alongside Trudie Styler (American Honey) and Celine Rattray (The Kids Are All Right) of Maven Pictures.
Camille Griffin will make her directorial feature film debut from her own original screenplay. Griffin, the mother of Golden Globe-nominated JoJo Rabbit breakout Griffin Davis, has written and directed five shorts before this. She started her career working in the camera department alongside cinematographers including Darius Khondji and Ben Davis.
While Silent Night’s plot details are being kept largely under wraps, the festive comedy will focus on an extended family having a Christmas dinner in a country setting.
