In an announcement made today, Haunted Movies partner Jason Blum unveiled plans for the company’s next picture, "The Lords of Salem," to be directed by Rob Zombie from a script by Zombie. Set in modern-day Salem, the film involves the demonic return of a 300-year-old coven of witches.
This is the third entry in a new horror slate deal between Haunted Movies and Alliance Films. The first picture to come out of this partnership is "Insidious," written and directed by the original "Saw" team of James Wan and Leigh Whannel, and starring Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne. "Insidious" recently premiered in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto Film Festival on September 14 and immediately was the subject of a bidding war, which was won by Sony Pictures Worldwide, who will handle the release of the film later this year. The second picture is "The Bay," helmed by Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson and currently shooting in South Carolina.
Octane, IM Global's genre arm, is handling international sales on the Haunted Movies slate, including on "The Lords of Salem."
Haunted Movies is a partnership between Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli, the same team behind the box-office phenomenon Paranormal Activity (Paramount 2009) and Paranormal Activity 2 (set for release by Paramount this October).
"The Lords of Salem" will be produced by Blum, Schneider, and Peli, Zombie, and Zombie’s producing partner Andy Gould. Brian Kavanaugh-Jones of Automatik will executive produce.
Zombie currently is about to embark on a three week tour of debauchery with Alice Cooper on The Halloween Hootenanny Tour with special guests Murderdolls. The tour kicks off in Los Angeles at the Gibson Amphitheatre on Thursday, September 30th and will criss-cross the USA.
