New "Amityville" movie


Ryan Reynolds starred in 2005's "The Amityville Horror", which was the last movie released from the Amityville franchise.

13 May – Production studio Hannibal Classics has confirmed a spin-off film of the original "The Amityville Horror" to be titled, "Amityville: The Legacy 3D" with production starting this September 2011, reports ComingSoon website.

Based on the 1979 classic film, the new effort will be based on the book "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" by John G. Jones, which also inspired some of the sequels including the 2005 remake "The Amityville Horror" starring Ryan Reynolds which according to BoxOfficeMojo website, generated over US$108 million worldwide.

"Amityville: The Legacy 3D" will follow the Evans family as they cope with the staggering loss of their Aunt Carolyn, who killed herself under mysterious circumstances; leaving her two kids to be raised by the Evans' in a new house they all move into, hoping for a fresh start.

Andrew Helm and Steve B. Harris are set to write the script, with Harris, Richard Rionda Del Castro and Paul Mason (who also produced the 2005 remake) producing starting this September. No director or cast is attached at this time.

Legacy will be the tenth installment of the Amityville franchise, which includes four previous feature films, four direct-to-video releases, and a TV movie. It will also be the second one in 3D, after "Amityville 3-D" which came out during the 1980's 3D fad.

Hannibal Classics expects "Amityville: The Legacy 3D" to be released by October 2012.
