Hannibal Classics has just announced a spin-off of the 1979 classic The Amityville Horror, to be titled Amityville: The Legacy 3D. The new film will be based on the book Amityville: The Evil Escapes by John G. Jones, which also inspired some of the sequels. Andrew Helm and Steve B. Harris are set to write the script, with Harris, Richard Rionda Del Castro and Paul Mason (who also produced the 2005 remake) producing. No director or cast is attached at this time.

Legacy will be the tenth installment in the Amityville series, which includes four previous feature films, four direct-to-video releases, and a made-for-TV movie. It will also be the second one in 3D — the third film, Amityville 3-D, came out during the ’80s 3D craze. Read more after the jump.
