Things look less than weird David Harbor, because he has just been selected for Universal’s new thriller called Violent night. Harbor plays in a film directed by a Norwegian director Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow, Hansel & Kerttu: Witch Hunters). The script is written Sonic the Hedgehog scribes Pat Casey and Josh Miller.
The film is produced by 87North, who directs David Leitch, Chad Stahelski and Kelly McCormick. The company may be an identifiable name for close viewers because they are behind the production company John Wick concession, Atomic Blondes starring Charlize Theron, and restarting the series Kung Fu, which is currently presented on CW.
The announcement of the Harbor casting did not provide much information, but said so Violent night is said to be a grim holiday thriller. Based on 87North’s resume and what Harbor presented while wearing the Red Guardian outfit Black Widow, it may be safe to assume that this film is heavy in tense and brutal cycles.
It is not a stranger to call Wirkola in darker material, e.g. Dead snow dealt with zombies who climbed from their graves to attack a group of students in the remote mountains of Norway. The film was cruel in its killings and did not banish blood vessels. Despite the more horrific elements, the film also played a bit of a comedy about the situation, which may apply to Harbor’s acting style, as he is known to present comedy in his works.
This seems to be another awesome feather in Casey and Miller’s caps that not only write this original manuscript, but are Sonic the Hedgehog 2 will be released sometime next year. Types will be seen in the future of video game matching Ben Schwartz, James Marsden, and Jim Carrey back, but also presents Idris Elba | fans favorite Knuckles. Collider recently reported that Elba, known as a sex symbol, is not bringing its trademark into the role.
Violent night is scheduled to be released after Thanksgiving, when it’s always a good time to release holiday-themed movies, and its release date is December 2, 2022.
Harbor also talks about his future plans for his “Extraction” character.
