Dimension Films has announced a January 2nd 2015 release date for the project going by the title “Amityville”.
Previously called “The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes,” it was a project that was seemingly stuck in development hell for years. Earlier this week producer Jason Blum confirmed it was still moving forward though.
Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands are writing and directing the found footage thriller which ignores the 2005 reboot and serves as a direct follow-up to the 1976 original.
At last report, the story follows an ambitious female TV news intern leading a team of journalists, clergymen and paranormal researchers into an investigation of the bizarre events of the first film.
