LIONS GATE ARE SERIOUSLY TWISTED
Variety reports that following the box-office success of SAW, which now looks likely to gross upwards of $50 million on a budget of $1.2 million, Lions Gate Films has signed a deal with the film?s production entity, Twisted Pictures. A division of Evolution Entertainment that?s headed by Mark Burg, Oren Koules and Gregg Hoffman, Twisted will produce no less than nine horror/thriller features for Lions Gate to distribute under the new arrangement?which doesn?t even include the SAW sequel that the two companies are developing for Halloween 2005 release. No titles or talent have been announced for the new movie slate.
