‘Mortal Kombat: Legacy’ Director Kevin Tancharoen Boards ‘Guns of Christmas Past’

Voltage Pictures has tapped “Mortal Kombat: Legacy” director Kevin Tancharoen to helm actioner “The Guns Of Christmas Past.”

Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier will produce for Voltage, which is also financing. Foreman and Chartier were exec producers on “Dallas Buyers Club.”

Tancharoen will direct from Andrew Hilton’s script, loosely based on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.” The story centers on a retired hitman who returns to Chicago on Christmas Eve to avenge the death of his friend and faces unlikely enemies from his past, present, and future.

Tancharoen directed the second season of Warner Bros.’ digital series “Mortal Kombat: Legacy.” He also directed “Glee: The 3D Concert Movie” and the “Fame” reboot for MGM and decided last year to leave New Line’s “Mortal Kombat” movie after three years of development.

Tancharoen is represented by Verve and Myman Greenspan. Hilton is repped by attorney Craig A. Kessler.

News was first reported by Deadline.com.
