Zombie Signs Two-Pic Deal at Dimension


Dimension Films has signed a two-picture deal with writer-director Rob Zombie, reports Variety. Andy Gould, Zombie’s longtime manager and producing partner, has boarded both projects as producer.

The deal comes as Dimension and distribution partner MGM prepare to release Zombie’s Halloween nationwide this weekend.

Per the terms of the two-pic deal, Zombie will write and direct both titles, although Dimension didn’t release any further details about the projects, including whether they would be horror films.

“We are excited about his fresh take on ‘Halloween’ and are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with him on future projects,” Dimension topper Bob Weinstein said. “We admire Rob for all the roles he plays, both as a director and writer.”

Zombie said the two-picture deal with Dimension is a “natural step in the evolution of my film career.”
