"Krampus" has added some names to its naughty list.
Michael Dougherty ("Trick 'r Treat") is directing the film, which he wrote with Todd Casey and Zach Shields.
Set for release Dec. 4 from Universal Pictures, "Krampus" is inspired by the titular creature of Alpine folklore, a furry, horned beast who does St. Nick's dirty work by terrorizing and punishing misbehaving children. The movie will center on a modern family that's the target of Krampus.
Scott ("Hot Tub Time Machine 2"), Koechner (the "Anchorman" movies) and Collette ("Tammy," "Little Miss Sunshine") are all well versed in ensemble comedies. In "Krampus," they'll join Emjay Anthony ("Chef") and Allison Tolman (HBO's "Hello Ladies").
Shooting is expected to begin this spring.
