A movie about the “krampuses” who steal people’s money and turn them into a living legend is making the rounds.
Krampus: Return to the Krampuses will be a remake of the 1970s hit, starring the likes of Jennifer Aniston, Matt Damon, Jennifer Garner and Kate Winslet.
The remake is based on a book by Peter Kraus and Michael Mika, the director behind The Krampausen and The Kramps, which both came out in 2017.
“We wanted to bring back this timeless classic, to get a new generation of people who grew up on it to watch it, so it had to be the Kramps,” Mika told The Verge.
“It was the ultimate metaphor for the way our world works.”
This time around, the kramps will be played by the same actors, but they’ll be a different breed.
The cast is set to include Nicole Kidman, Jennifer Lawrence, and Idris Elba.
It’s unclear how the krill will be treated, though, since it’s a parasitic creature, which is why it’s not a real krill, Mika said.
Instead, it’s an aquatic species.
The original movie starred Elba and Kidman and was about a Krampo who stole money and turned it into a legendary figure.
The film was a commercial failure, but it was one of the first of its kind.
Its sequel, Krampos: Return, is set in 2060, and it’s the subject of a documentary called Krampers: Life After Krampsters, which was filmed in the US and Canada.
“Krampers is the KrAMPUS of the world,” Mikasaid in a statement.
“That is the most iconic creature in the world.”
The movie will have a PG-13 rating for language and sexual content, but Mika says that the kratts will remain “the most popular krump on Earth.”
“It’s not only about the Krumpus,” he said.
“This is the story of how our world is changing and changing quickly.”
