I have yet to see the first BUTTERFLY EFFECT because of my dislike of Ashton Kutcher, and I have a DVD of BUTTERFLY EFFECT 2 sitting on my counter because Erica Durance (from SMALLVILLE and the crap-classic HOUSE OF THE DEAD!) is in it. So, I guess I should catch up before After Dark Film’s 8 FILMS TO DIE FOR next year because they’re now producing and releasing BUTTERFLY EFFECT 3, so says The Hollywood Reporter.
"Benderspink and FilmEngine will produce the third installment of The Butterfly Effect along with After Dark Films, which will distribute it theatrically in the U.S. as part of its After Dark Horrorfest "8 Films to Die For" series. Holly Brix ("The Lost Girls") wrote the screenplay, which centers on a young man discovers he has inherited the powers of "The Butterfly Effect" and attempts to solve the mystery of his high school girlfriend’s death using his newfound ability, only to unwittingly unleash a vicious serial killer. Production will start September 1 in Vancouver with casting underway."
"We’re taking the Butterfly Effect to a whole new level of insanity," says BenderSpink’s Chris Bender. "Holly’s script is a tremendous ride and her take on time-travel is one that’s truly original. This film will blow audiences away. We’re thrilled to bring this franchise back to the big screen through After Dark Films and Horrorfest."
