For years now, no one knew what was going to happen with the "Amityville Horror" series. It was announced last year, that there was a sequel in the making, titled, "The Amityville Tapes" and that it was going to be a direct-2-DVD reboot, rather than a direct sequel to the 2005 remake (that failed terribly in the box-office). No one was sure if the reboot was deffo going to happen or not.
It's now announced that the new film WILL happen and it's now titled, "The Amityville Legacy 3D". It's now not a reboot to the whole franchise, but more of a spin-off to the 1970's original film. It's based on "Amityville: The Evil Escapes" book, which was written by John G Jones.
Filming is set to begin this September and will be made by Hannibal Classics. The film is set for a 2012/13 release date.
