LIONS GATE CONFIRMED
Variety confirmed what Fango told you last week - Lions Gate has picked up Rob Zombie's horror film, HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES to release it in the first quarter of 2003 (out of Oscar competition? What the hell?).
Lions Gate will be releasing an R-rated version of the movie into theaters stateside, but then releasing it unrated on DVD. Overseas, the unrated version as well as the cut version will both be released theatrically.
The controversial movie, originally slated to hit from Universal in the summer of 2001, has bounced from rumored distributor to rumored distributor before finding its home with Lions Gate after being vilified all over Hollywood for its intense and unabashedly gory nature.
