OPENS ITS DOORS TO HAMMER
IMAGINATION DESIGN WORKS, INC. AND NINE/8 ENTERTAINMENT
THE ICONIC PRODUCTION CO. OPTIONS RIGHTS TO DEVELOP AND PRODUCE HORROR FEATURE FILM
Los Angeles, CA (April 27, 2012) – In the first deal of its kind, the San Jose, California based Winchester Mystery House considered the “world’s most haunted house” is authorizing Hammer, an Exclusive Media company, the use of its unique property for a feature film based on its legendary story. Hammer has optioned all rights to develop and produce the feature film with Imagination Design Works (IDW) and Nine/8 Entertainment, it was announced today by Simon Oakes, Vice-Chairman of Exclusive Media and President & CEO of Hammer, and Guy East and Nigel Sinclair, Co-Chairmen of Exclusive Media.
I don't know how this movie hasn't been made yet. The true story is almost stranger than fiction, and would make for a great spooky story, if not going overboard in silliness. And filming in the actual house is an added bonus. It also leads to childlike wondering if Sarah's "curse" will sweep down on the film crew, adding it to join the ranks of other famous film curses.
If done well, it could be a great movie. If done badly, well, it would still be kind of cool.
