Reality TV king turned sometime film producer Mike Fleiss (“Hostel,” “Poseidon”) has launched his new production company Next Films reports the trades.
First project on the list is the horror franchise “Black Sabbath”. The British heavy metal band’s founding member, guitarist-songwriter Tony Iommi, will score the film which won’t involve the group – only the name.
Iommi has sole ownership of the Black Sabbath name, though former frontman Ozzy Osbourne filed a suit in may challenging that right.
Fleiss is also looking into comedy, music, documentaries, and remakes of successful international productions.
