Scott Mescudi, commonly known as Kid Cudi, has lined up another genre film after acting in the A24 horror film X. Mescudi will co-star alongside Joel Kinnaman in John Woo‘s action thriller Silent Night.
Godlock (Kinnaman) is “a parent on a mission to revenge his little kid who was cruelly caught in the crossfire of gang warfare on Christmas Eve,” according to the loglines. Godlock promises to revenge his son by any means necessary after being shot and nearly murdered in pursuit of the murderers.” The movie also includes Detective Dennis Vassel, who will be played by Mescudi.
The screenplay for the film was written by Robert Lynn, and it is now filming in Mexico City with a cast that has the appearance of Harold Torres and Catalina Sandino Moreno.
Thunder Road Films, the production firm founded by John Wick, is collaborating with Capstone Studios on the film. Thunder Road will be produced by Basil Iwanyk and Erica Lee, as well as Christian Mercuri for Capstone and Lori Tilkin for A Better Tomorrow Films. Executive producers include David Haring, Ruzanna Kegeyan, Mike Gabrawy, Joe Gatta, and Will Flynn.
Mescudi will next appear in Ti West’s horror film, in which he will act with Jenna Ortega, Brittany Snow, and Mia Goth. Teddy, a Netflix film with Jay-Z and The Harder They Fall director Jeymes Samuels attached to produce, will see him appear in and helm his directorial debut. Mescudi has WME as his representator.
