Dimension Films and Miramax started production on The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes. Production will start this summer with a release date for January 27, 2012.
The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes will focus on the events after the first movie in the Amityville saga. The lost tapes will be pieced together from material dating back to 1976. A female news intern will lead a team of journalists to the most famous haunted house case in the world along with clergymen and paranormal researchers to investigate the bizarre events at the Amityville House. She will open a door to the evil that haunts the house that may never be closed again.
"We are thrilled to return to the mythology of The Amityville Horror with a new and terrifying vision that will satisfy our existing fans and also introduce an entirely new audience to this popular haunting phenomenon," said Bob Weinstein.
The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes will be produced by Jason Blum (Insidious), Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands.
