It looks like the remake of Silent Night, Deadly Night is finally happening and Malcolm McDowell in one of the lead roles. They also plan to start filming next month and hope that the movie will be release later this year. http://www.slashfilm.com/malcolm-mcdowe ... ht-remake/
The original film was a pretty good film, but I'm not going to get angry if it gets remade since the original movie was not high art or anything. I don't like remakes if they are needed or they are not old enough (Like the upcoming American Psycho remake). I think with this movie coming out, we can finally get a good R1 release of the first two movies.
