Vertigo adds two 3D horror pix

'Night in the Woods,' 'Shrooms' join production slate

LONDON — Indie distrib-producer Vertigo Films has added low-budget horror “A Night in the Woods” and a sequel to 2007’s horror “Shrooms” to its 3D slate.

These join the previously announced sequel to “Streetdance 3D” and toon “Horrid Henry,” making Vertigo the most active 3D shingle in Blighty.

Helmer Richard Parry’s “Woods” is skedded to lense in October, fully financed by Vertigo.

“Shrooms” sequel, still in the early stages, will be co-produced by Vertigo and Ireland’s Treasure Entertainment, which produced the 2007 pic.

A sequel to the £4.5 million ($7 million) “Streetdance 3D,” which has grossed $44 million worldwide since its May release, is skedded to shoot early next year for release in the last quarter of 2011. Pic is budgeted at $8 million-$9.5 million.

Helmer Nick Moore is shooting $9 million live-action children’s pic “Horrid Henry,” based on Francesca Simon’s literary character (Daily Variety, June 23).

Off the 3D slate, Vertigo is also set to produce an English remake of Danish thriller “Pusher.”

“Not every film we make will be in 3D,” Vertigo managing director Rupert Preston said. “But the younger audiences do expect it now, and the format massively enhances the entertainment value. We’re not jumping on a bandwagon; we’re just looking to push the envelope further.”
