Relativity Media buys Rogue Pictures
Via Deadline Hollywood: Relativity Media, LLC has purchased Rogue Pictures from Universal Pictures and acquired Rogue’s entire library, its more than 30 projects in development and ownership of its producing deals, including the deal with Wes Craven.
The first picture set for release under this new deal is writer/director David S. Goyer’s (The Dark Knight) new horror film, The Unborn, produced by Michael Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company. The Unborn is a supernatural thriller that follows Casey (Odette Yustman) a young woman pulled into a world of nightmares when a demonic spirit haunts her and threatens everyone she loves. Plagued by merciless dreams and a tortured ghost that haunts her waking hours, Casey learns that the spirit may be the soul of her unborn twin brother and must turn to the only person who can make it stop– Rabbi Sendak (Gary Oldman). The Unborn opens Friday.
Blog@Newsarama checked in with Hack/Slash creator Tim Seeley, since the film version of that comic was in development at Rogue. "Seeley confirmed that his book is still in the Rogue pipeline. He also indicated that there may be more information in the offing." Between that and Devil’s Due getting back up to speed, those are good signs.
