COLUMBIA & DIMENSION
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures has made a deal to release 30 DAYS OF NIGHT in the U.S. Based on the comic by Steve Niles, the movie is set in Barrow, Alaska, where vampires arrive to take advantage of a monthlong period when the sun never rises. Sam Raimi (who is likely to direct) and Rob Tapert will produce through their Ghost House Pictures company, whose parent, Senator International, handles international rights. In addition, Variety reports that Dimension Films is actually the key studio behind Terry Gilliam?s upcoming BROTHERS GRIMM movie, and will open the film domestically; previously announced MGM will handle overseas distribution.
