September 26, 2006 -- Lion's Gate has aligned with the producers of "An American Haunting" to create a slew of new horror movies for the studio, Variety reports. "An American Haunting" was certainly one of the better horror films of 2006 which isn't saying all that much the way the year is turning out. Here is what Variety had to report:
"Looking to expand its pipeline and heap on more horror, Lionsgate has partnered with After Dark Films --producer of 'An American Haunting' -- to turn out a slate of films intended for wide release, along with some specialty titles.
"Three-year production and distribution deal follows the box office success of 'Haunting,' ADF's first release after its formation by filmmaker-producer Courtney Solomon and Hong Kong-based real estate billionaire Allan Zeman. Pic, which opened in May on 1,700 screens, has grossed $16.5 million domestically. Solomon wrote and directed."
