Dimension Films announced today that they have preemptively purchased The Witches' Ballroom, a pitch by Ray Wright. Wright previously wrote The Crazies, and his last spec script, The Widow, was recently sold to Vendome.
The Witches' Ballroom will be produced by Shawn Levy and Dan Levine at 21 Laps. The logline is currently being kept under wraps.
Here's what The Weinstein Company co-chairman Bob Weinstein had to say about the project.
"I've been a huge fan of Ray Wright for a very long time now and we've been trying to find something to collaborate on. The Witches' Ballroom is going to terrify audiences in a way they've never seen before."
Screenwriter Ray Wright had this to say about his project finding a home at Dimension Films.
"It's exciting when an original idea takes off, particularly psychological horror which is such a visceral thrill to write. Dimension is the perfect home for it."
Overseeing production for Dimension Films are SVP of Production and Creative Affairs, Matthew Signer and VP of Production and Development, Keith Levine.
The deal was negotiated for Dimension Films by Adrian Lopez, VP of Business and Legal and Matthew Signer and on behalf of Wright by UTA and Attorney Mark Temple.
