Lionsgate, Weinsteins Bite into 'Teeth'

January 22, 2007 -- The Hollywood Reporter says that the fear film "Teeth" has been snatched up by Lionsgate and the Weinsteins after a favorable screening Sunday at Sundance.

"Despite repeated denials that they were buying the feature, sources said late Sunday that the Weinstein Co. and Lionsgate are in final negotiations to partner on the distribution of "Teeth," the story of a virginal girl whose vagina turns into a secret weapon. After initially passing on the film, the distributors revisited the project Sunday after a noon screening at the Eccles Theatre. It's not clear which studio will take the lead on theatrical distribution or video, but the Weinsteins and Lionsgate have a strong history releasing controversial product together, including 1999's "Dogma" and 2004's "Fahrenheit 9/11."

"By partnering with indie Lionsgate, the Weinstein Co. won't have to deal with the MPAA signatory rules that would require the film to carry a rating, as it would if it went with its traditional distributor, MGM. The Weinsteins intend to release the film in its current form, not cutting any of the profane material that likely would prompt an NC-17 rating."

Not Much Horror at Sundance

December 1, 2006 -- "Teeth" leads the titles at this year's Sundance Fest, but another film -- "The Signal" -- looks interesting as well.

The New York Times reports:

"Sexual oddities and sexual abuse, the ravages of war, the challenges of immigration, human disabilities and the writer’s life: all will be recurring themes at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, Jan. 18 to 28. Organizers say the festival’s lineup of 64 American and international films in dramatic and documentary competition, announced here on Wednesday, stretches across a vastly expanded range of subject matter and narrative styles. There's one horror film in the bunch. In “Teeth,” directed by Mitchell Lichtenstein — the son of the artist Roy Lichtenstein and an actor who starred in Ang Lee’s “Wedding Banquet” — a high school student who is the object of male violence discovers that she has a quite literal case of vagina dentata. Several men learn this the hard way, in what might be called a feminist horror film."

Also playing the Utah fest: Shoreline Entertainment's "The Signal," which stars Anessa Ramsey, Justin Welborn, AJ Bowen, Scott Poythress, Sahr Ngaugua, and Cheri Christian. In it, a media signal turns the inhabitants of a city stark raving mad.

Another film playing fest worth noting: "Fido," directed by Andrew Currie and written by Robert Chomiak and Currie, the story of a boy's effort to keep a six-foot tall pet zombie that eats the next-door neighbor. Stars Carrie-Anne Moss, Billy Connelly and Tim Blake Nelson.
