Sony Combining Two Film Franchises in "Lake Placid vs Anaconda"

Sony Combining Two Film Franchises in "Lake Placid vs Anaconda"Submit Comment
Asylum and the Syfy Channel have been making creature movies, combined from different animals and weather, for years. And now comes word that two theatrical films, "Anaconda" and "Lake Placid," are coming together in a new direct-to-DVD release called "Lake Placid vs Anaconda."

"Anaconda" was released in 1997 and starred Jennifer Lopez and Jon Voight. The giant snake film grossed $137 million worldwide and received a sequel in 2004, which grossed $70 million on a budget of only $20 million. Two more straight to DVD sequels followed.

"Lake Placid" was released in 1999 and starred Bill Pullman, Bridget Fonda, Oliver Platt, Brendan Gleeson and Betty White. Even though the crocodile movie was only able to earn $57 million worldwide on a budget of $35 million, the franchise received three sequels.

Both franchises belonged to two different studios (Fox and Sony), but somehow ended up at Sony. The plan now is to begin shooting "Lake Placid vs Anaconda" in early December in Bulgaria.

I think they are aiming for the Sharknado fan group.

"Both franchises belonged to two different studios (Fox and Sony), but somehow ended up at Sony."

Itís not exactly a big mystery. Sony probably said to Fox, "Hey can we buy the rights to Lake Placid?" -- "Lake what? Oh, uh, sure. Here." ...for $200 dollars and a box of Cubans.

Now, all Sony needs is a couple of former hip-hop stars-turned-actors, a once-prestigious, Oscar winning actor to play the shady villain who gets swallowed up by whatever monster, and Betty White. Or just scratch all that and cast Nic Cage in instead. In a bear suit.

P.S. If we can only get Fox to sell all of their Marvel sh*t as well.

Even though the Anaconda is ridiculously big, it's only form of attack is to wrap itself round it's enemies. The crocodile would just keep biting chunks out of it until it died.
