Dimension announces new slate of films
Bob Weinstein announced a new slate of Dimension films today, according to Variety. A former offshoot of Miramax, the production house went with the Weinstein Brothers in their 2005 split with the company they founded, and is now a subset of the Weinstein Company. In addition to Scream IV, slated to begin production next spring, the company plans to shoot Halloween III and remakes of Children of the Corn and Short Circut. Sequels to Hellraiser and Scanners are also in the works, both to be shot in 3-D, as is Robert Rodriguez’s next 3-D installment of the Spy Kids franchise. “I’m going back to what I do best,” Weinstein said of the upcoming projects.
