Shooting is currently under way on Amityville, the Blumhouse-produced next installment in the franchise that continues to endure all these decades later. Today we’ve got our first look at the film in the form of some familiar looking behind-the-scenes photos. Read on!
Twitter user @aeromat recently tweeted out some images from the set, which give us a glimpse at the in-progress build of the infamous house that ties the whole series together.
The recreation is currently being constructed in Long Beach, California – a long way from Long Island, New York, where the real house still sits.
Check out the photos below, and look for more soon!
Jennifer Jason Leigh stars as lead character Joan, a single mother who moves her three kids into the Amityville house, which of course has a very dark history. Bella Thorne, Cameron Monaghan, Taylor Spreitler, and McKenna Grace are also on board.
Maniac remake director Franck Khalfoun will direct.
Dimension had planned on reigniting the popular horror franchise using a found-footage angle, but that idea has been dropped. Amityville remains scheduled for release on January 2, 2015.
Daniel Farrands and Casey La Scala co-wrote the script and are expected to produce with Jason Blum of hit factory Blumhouse.
