Bloody Disgusting says:
Not to be confused with Amityville Tapes or Amityville: The Legacy 3D (revealed last week), Dimension Films and Miramax today announced the production of The Amityville Horror: The Lost Tapes -- the "official" sequel.
This is the first film to be produced under the agreement between Miramax and The Weinstein Company to create sequels to some of Miramax's best-known properties.
Dimension also announced that it has acquired the rights to a new screenplay for the film by Casey La Scala and Daniel Farrands. Farrands and La Scala are also set to direct the film. Production will commence this summer with a release date scheduled for January 27, 2012.
