“Maniac” and “P2” director Franck Khalfoun has come onboard to helm the upcoming reboot of the “Amityville Horror” franchise.
Dimension Films and Blumhouse Productions had been working on a found-footage themed reboot called “Amityville: The Lost Tapes”. That is now dead, in its place comes this project which will go by the simple title of “Amityville”.
Bella Thorne and Jennifer Jason Leigh have jumped onto the project in which Leigh plays Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house – only to later learn about its very dark history.
This new take, which will NOT be found footage in approach, is targeting a January 2nd, 2015 release date.
