According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam Scott and Toni Collette have joined the cast of “Krampus”, the Christmas-themed horror project from Legendary. Michael Dougherty, who made the Halloween-themed Trick ‘r Treat, wrote the script with Todd Casey and Zach Shields and is directing. The story centers on a family that comes under attack from a Santa Claus-like ancient entity who punishes bad kids. Scott will play the father, a workaholic and rather absent dad who has to step up for his family. Collette will play the mother, a woman who pretends everything is perfect with her family via her elaborate meals but will also have to dig deep to protect her family. Allison Tolman already is on board as Collette’s sister-in-law, while Emjay Anthony is playing the son. Legendary is eyeing a spring shoot in New Zealand.
