Paramount will release the dark and bizarre R-rated Christmas action-comedy Fatman, starring Mel Gibson (Dragged Across Concrete) and Walton Goggins (TV’s Justified) and written and directed by Eshom Nelms & Ian Nelms.

To save his declining business, Chris Cringle (Gibson), also known as Santa Claus, is forced into a partnership with the U.S. military. Making matters worse, Chris gets locked into a deadly battle of wits against a highly skilled assassin (Goggins), hired by a precocious 12-year-old after receiving a lump of coal in his stocking. ‘Tis the season for Fatman to get even, in the action-comedy that keeps on giving.

Also starring Marianne Jean-Baptiste, Fatman received a limited rollout to theaters and VOD back in November to decidedly mixed reviews.
