Don't worry, it's not a remake of the Christmas classic.

Kerry's finest, Michael Fassbender, will take on the lead role in The Snowman, an adaptation of the Jo Nesbo novel of the same name. He will play Detective Harry Hole who is sent to investigate the disappearance of a young woman whose pink scarf is found wrapped around a snowman.

It was filmed in Nesbo's home country of Norway to give the film the full scandi crime / thriller experience. Rebecca Ferguson, Val Kilmer, Toby Jones, J. K. Simmons and Chloe Sevigny co-star; with Let The Right One In and Tinker Tailor Solider Spy director, Tomas Alfredson, behind the camera. With all that talent involved, we're hoping for big things.

The Snowman will be released here on October 13th.
