Black Friday: Bruce Campbell and Devon Sawa Join Holiday Shopping Horror Movie

Bruce Campbell (Ash vs. Evil Dead), Devon Sawa (Final Destination), and Michael Jai White (Spawn) have joined the cast of director Casey Tebo’s Black Friday

As confirmed earlier by Deadline, Black Friday is “Set on the busiest shopping night of the year, Black Friday, the story follows a group of disgruntled toy store employees who have to defend themselves from legions of holiday shoppers when a mysterious alien parasite sends them on a murderous rampage.”

Campbell, Sawa, and White join a cast that already included Ivana Baquero (from Pan’s Labyrinth), Ryan Lee, and Stephen Peck. Andy Greskoviak wrote the script, of which this is his first feature-length movie. Black Friday has already begun to shoot in Boston so expect to see it in time for Black Friday 2021. Given how Covid has really pushed a lot of us to seek online retailers over in-store purchases, it won’t be too long before we’re trampling over one another to get some of those sweet sales. We can definitely wait a year for this one and from all accounts it’s sounding like a fun time!

Just to add to the overall nuttiness of the film’s potential, after it was confirmed Sawa’s involvement the Idle Hands’ star took to his Twitter to mention that the film will also be a musical.

So expect Aliens! Musical Numbers! Casper! And Sales! Who knows, maybe these employees will find themselves having to utter a store’s slogan like “Shop Smart, Shop SMart.”
