Miramax/Weinsteins Team on ‘From Dusk Till Dawn’ and ‘Amityville’ Sequels

Miramax and The Weinstein Company today announced an agreement to create sequels to some of Miramax’s best-known properties and to partner on potential new television shows and special edition home entertainment products. Included in the announcement were sequels to (are you ready?) From Dusk Till Dawn and The Amityville Horror (finally). This partnership augments an existing relationship between the companies on such franchises as Scream 4 (to be released April 15, 2011), and Scary Movie 5. In addition, Miramax will handle digital distribution on select sequel projects. Miramax and TWC have also agreed to develop new, special edition materials for Blu-ray releases, such as roundtables featuring cast and directors. What would you want from a Dusk Till Dawn or Amityville sequel? The Amityville Tapes – a cinema verite-styled sequel – had been in development for quite some time, I wonder if this will be revived?
