Rob Zombie pacts with Dimension

'Halloween' director inks two-picture deal

Dimension Films has inked a two-picture deal with writer-director Rob Zombie.

Andy Gould, Zombie’s longtime manager and producing partner, has boarded both projects as producer.

Pact comes as Dimension and distrib partner MGM prepare to release Zombie’s “Halloween” nationwide this weekend. The remake is hoping to scare up solid business over the Labor Day weekend, a frame in which studios usually avoid rolling out bigger fare, since it’s not a heavy moviegoing holiday.

Per the terms of the two-pic deal, Zombie will write and direct both titles, although Dimension didn’t release any further details about the projects, including whether they would be horror films.

“We are excited about his fresh take on ‘Halloween’ and are thrilled to be expanding our relationship with him on future projects,” Dimension topper Bob Weinstein said. “We admire Rob for all the roles he plays, both as a director and writer.”

Zombie said the two-picture deal with Dimension is a “natural step in the evolution of my film career.”

Gould, with Spectacle Entertainment Group, produced Zombie’s two previous features, “The Devil’s Rejects” and “House of 1000 Corpses.”

Zombie also directed the upcoming animated pic “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto,” featuring Paul Giamatti in the lead voice role. He also helmed one of the fake trailers, “Werewolf Women of the S.S.,” featuring Nicolas Cage, that was part of Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez’s “Grindhouse.”

As a recording artist, Zombie has sold more than 15 million albums and directed dozens of musicvideos. He’s working on a live album skedded for release later this year.
