LIONS GATE GET YUZNA
Variety, confirming what may have been expected, reports that Lions Gate has picked up U.S. rights to the next batch of productions from Brian Yuzna and Julio Fern?ez?s Spanish Fantastic Factory outfit. The deal includes Paco Plaza?s werewolf movie ROMASANTA, which begins production in June, while the killer-dog opus ROTTWEILER begins in August, the religious chiller THE NUN starts in February and BENEATH STILL WATERS, based on Matthew J. Costello?s book, shoots next spring. It?s unclear whether any of these will get theatrical release; Lions Gate is still negotiating to get BEYOND RE-ANIMATOR some midnight bookings this summer.
