Presumably it’s not at an S-Mart.

Deadline reports that Bruce Campbell is starring in BLACK FRIDAY, directed by Casey Tebo (2016’s horror/comedy HAPPY BIRTHDAY) from a script by Andy Greskoviak. Devon Sawa (FINAL DESTINATION and IDLE HANDS, lately making a comeback with HUNTER HUNTER) Michael Jai White (SPAWN), Ivana Baquero (PAN’S LABYRINTH), Ryan Lee and Stephen Peck also star in the film, which is set on the titular super-busy shopping day. The story centers on a group of disgruntled toy-store employees who have to battle holiday shoppers transformed into monstrous, vulture-like creatures by a mysterious alien parasite. Filming begins November 16 in Boston, with Warner Davis of the Warner Davis Company (natch) producing alongside MFW Productions; a release next Thanksgiving is being targeted.
