Variety is reporting that Germany’s Studio Babelsberg has drawn up a five-year, fifteen-film production agreement with producer Joel Silver. The films will be produced under the banner of Dark Castle and are planned to be distributed by Warner Bros.
Details are few on exactly what films are planned, and there was no word on whether the new movies would be exclusively shot at the company’s studio facilities near Berlin. Carl Woebcken, speaking for Babelsberg, did say that the first of the fifteen new films is expected to begin shooting there in the spring.
It’s interesting to note just how significant fifteen new films means to Dark Castle; fifteen just so happens to be the number of films they have produced or are currently producing to date. This contract then effectively plans to double the amount of films they’ve done over the last decade, all in the next five. I’m happy for them! As long as they don’t make another Gothika … or House of Wax … I’m happy for them!
