Relativity Buys Horror House Rogue

ON

Strangers 2 script turned in

Months in the making, the $150 million deal between Relativity and Universal which finds the former purchasing Rogue Pictures and all of its titles (many of them horror) has closed.

Rogue dropped on the genre scene with film such as Seed of Chucky, Cry_Wolf and Shaun of the Dead. When Andrew Rona moved in from his position at Dimension Films, Rogue unleashed The Strangers, Doomsday, The Hitcher and The Unborn (opening this Friday). Relativity now owns those films including the upcoming The Strangers 2 (director Bryan Bertino has turned in a script), Todd Lincoln’s adaptation of Hack/Slash, The Last House on the Left and Wes Craven’s 25/8.

Rona departed his post from Rogue last year taking with him producer Alex Heineman.
