Dimension Films announced today that they have preemptively purchased The Witches’ Ballroom, a pitch by Ray Wright. Wright previously wrote Breck Eisner’s 2010 version of The Crazies, and his last spec script, The Widow, was recently sold to Vendome.
The Witches’ Ballroom will be produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Levine at 21 Laps. The logline is currently being kept under wraps.
“I’ve been a huge fan of Ray Wright for a very long time now and we’ve been trying to find something to collaborate on. ‘The Witches’ Ballroom’ is going to terrify audiences in a way they’ve never seen before,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman of The Weinstein Company.
“It’s exciting when an original idea takes off, particularly psychological horror which is such a visceral thrill to write. Dimension is the perfect home for it,” said Ray Wright.
Overseeing production for Dimension Films are SVP of Production and Creative Affairs, Matthew Signer and VP of Production and Development, Keith Levine.
