We’ve learned today that Dimension Films has bought the rights to a pitch entitled The Witches Ballroom from The Crazies writer Ray Wright. Not much is known about the plot so far but I’m sure that will come in the near future. In the meantime, read on for more information on the acquisition.
Deadline is reporting, Dimension Films has preemptively purchased The Witches Ballroom, a pitch by The Crazies screenwriter Ray Wright. Shawn Levy and Dan Levine at 21 Laps are producing, and there’s no word yet on the plot. Dimension SVP Production and Creative Affairs Matthew Signer and VP Production and Development Keith Levine are overseeing.
“It’s exciting when an original idea takes off, particularly psychological horror which is such a visceral thrill to write,” Wright said in the release announcing the deal. “Dimension is the perfect home for it.”
