Signs two-picture deal
It’s a great big love fest at Dimension Films. Variety reports Rob Zombie’s future is bright at the studio releasing his update of Halloween this week.
The writer-director has signed a two-picture deal with Dimension; manager Andy Gould will act as producer, as he has done on Zombie’s Michael Myers film.
“We are excited about his fresh take on ‘Halloween’ and are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with him on future projects,” Dimension head Bob Weinstein says to the Hollywood trade. “We admire Rob for all the roles he plays, both as a director and writer.”
Details are being kept on the down-low regarding the nature of both films.
Zombie enjoyed a healthy two-film lifespan at Lionsgate with House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects before moving in with Dimension for Halloween and the Grindhouse trailer “Werewolf Women of the SS.”
