It looks like The Weinstein Company is getting into the video game business with the launch of TWC Games, focusing on developing and publishing video games across multiple platforms for their top properties. Potential franchises to be used in games include Scream, Hellraiser, Halloween, and Children of the Corn. Here is part of the press release:

"The Weinstein Company (TWC) announced today a new initiative in the video game space by launching TWC Games. The TWC Games label will utilize The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films' strong and recognizable properties, and work with external partners to develop and publish video games for mobile, social, and console platforms. Properties in The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films catalogue include SCREAM, HELLRAISER, HALLOWEEN, SCARY MOVIE, and CHILDREN OF THE CORN, among many others.

TWC CO-CHAIRMAN BOB WEINSTEIN EXPRESSED EXCITEMENT ABOUT THE NEW INITIATIVE. 'The video game marketplace is changing at such a rapid rate. With all of the digital platforms, there are so many opportunities to broaden our audience with compelling, high quality, cost-efficient, video game entertainment.' "

Given that every big summer movie tries to have a video game tie-in of some sort this make sense. I'm hoping, however, that for franchises like Hellraiser, they try to publish full console games and not just mobile or Facebook games. Hellraiser is an example of a great storyline and world that could work really well as a horror survival game if given to the right developer.
