[AFM '13] ‘Lake Placid vs. Anaconda’: Battle of the Home Video Franchises!

Anaconda

Two franchises are about to collide on home video.

Shooting is to begin this December in Bulgaria on Lake Placid vs. Anaconda, Bloody Disgusting learned on the week of the American Film Market.

There are no details yet, although casting is underway.

There have been four Lake Placid films, with the last being the 2012 home video sequel Lake Placid: The Final Chapter. The first, starring Bridget Fonda, Bill Pullman, and Oliver Platt, took in $34M for Fox back in 1999.

There are also four Anaconda films, with the last being the 2009 Anacondas: Trail of Blood. Sony’s 1997 Anaconda, starring Ice Cube, Jon Voight, Jennifer Lopez, and Eric Stoltz, made $65M at the box office.

    Skull-And-Crossbones, i feel the same way. i love both of each franchise’s original movies but all the respective sequels looked horrible (and from what i’ve seen of them they are horrible). i do like LAKE PLACID more though.

    I’m in. Anaconda is a guilty pleasure (and a fun WTF cast), while Lake Placid is just a pleasure. Too bad this film will probably suck.

    This could be insanely great, if done right!
