The next installment into the AMITYVILLE film series has been in the works for a long while now. Dimension Films and Blumhouse Productions have been keeping things moving forward with MANIAC director Frankc Khalfoun taking on the directing duties.
Details are not plentiful but we do know that the film will follow the story of a single mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh) who moves her three children (Cameron Monaghan, Bella Thorne and McKenna Grace) into the Amityville house where they soon begin to learn of it's dark history. Additional cast members include Thomas Mann and Taylor Spreitler.
The new film had been using the simple working title of AMITYVILLE, but now we have learned that the new movie has received a fresh title, now called AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING.
The current target release date at this point for AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING is January 2, 2015.
