Bella Thorne to star in new “AMITYVILLE”
Previously being developed by producer Jason Blum and Dimension films with the subtitle “The Lost Tapes,” a new film based on the infamous house at 112 Ocean Avenue will arrive next January 2015 as just AMITYVILLE, and starring Disney Channel starlet Bella Thorne.
The Wrap is reporting Thorne joins Jennifer Jason Leigh (EXISTENZ) in the film directed by MANIAC and P2’s Franck Khalfoun. In the film, Leigh and her three children become the latest residents of the Amityville home that’s haunted so many.
AMITYVILLE is set for release in just under a year on January 2, 2015. Daniel Farrands has penned the screenplay with Casey La Scala, and it seems the found footage angle from “The Lost Tapes” incarnation has been excised.
