Fangoria are reporting that the Weinsteins have entered into a partnership that will see Scream 4 come home through Anchor Bay Entertainment. No release date as of yet, though Scream-Trilogy has been told Blockbuster Mexico have advertised September.
Anchor Bay Entertainment parent Starz Media, LLC has agreed to sell The Weinstein Company a 25 percent stake in the company, with the Bay also entering a multiyear home/digital distribution agreement for films from TWC and its Dimension Films division. That means that Wes Craven’s upcoming SCREAM 4, plus in-development entries in the HALLOWEEN, HELLRAISER, CHILDREN OF THE CORN and SCARY MOVIE franchises, will hit DVD, Blu-ray, video-on-demand/pay-per-view and other digital distribution formats (though not television) under the Anchor Bay banner. “Anchor Bay Entertainment is thrilled to be adding the quality films from The Weinstein Company and its Dimension Films label to our first-class home entertainment and digital distribution businesses,” says Bay president Bill Clark. “Their track record within the home entertainment category is superb. The TWC films will allow Anchor Bay to continue its expansion, offering consumers and our retail partners excellent independent films featuring leading Hollywood talent.”
