Kevin Tancharoen has signed on to direct The Guns of Christmas Past, which is very loosely inspired by Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol.

The plot centers on a retired assassin who returns to his hometown of Chicago on Christmas Eve to avenge the death of his longtime friend. He finds himself going up against three adversaries from his past, present and future, while discovering who he really is in the process.

Andrew Hilton wrote the screenplay, with Voltage Pictures' Zev Foreman and Nicolas Chartier producing. Voltage is also developing Andrew Hilton's script Bullet Run, which Rob Cohen signed on to direct back in 2011. He also has The Lost Patrol set up at Legendary Pictures.

Kevin Tancharoen most recently wrote and directed Season 2 of his hit web series Mortal Kombat: Legacy. His feature credits include the Fame remake and Glee: The 3D Concert Movie.
