Cube 3D is in the works

Lionsgate planning new movie

cube

Lionsgate are set to surf the 3D horror wave with Cube 3D.

The production company are currently accepting pitches from writers on how to create a new Cube film that utilises that most recent of movie fads.

The first Cube was released way back in 1997. Directed by Splice’s Vincenzo Natali, it revolved around a wickedly clever conceit – a group of strangers are trapped in a series of rooms that will kill them if they don’t figure out how to escape.

The film was a cult hit, and spawned two follow-ups – a sequel in 2002 (Cube 2: Hypercube) and an STV prequel in 2004 (Cube: Zero).

Clearly Lionsgate are hopeful that they can emulate the success of the Saw series. Their success will mostly boil down to if they can come up with some seriously grisly death games...

Cube? Or Saw? Which would you rather see in 3D? Speak out below...

      I'm thinking The Cube will have a better storyline than the saw movies. I've only seen saw1,2 and 3 but i loved them. still, The Cube looks awesome!

      WTF!? Wasn't this the movie which starred Jennifer Lopez? If not, what was that movie called?

      can someone place a hit on this 'Raman's' head please? thank you. about Cube: first one, great! second one, less so, but still a nice sequel. Cube Zero kinda ruined it for me by de-mystifying the whole setup. So unless they come up with something brilliant (and seeing this is Lionsgate I'm sure they won't) they should leave the trilogy be.

      lately the new projects directors, writers, and producers are taking on are reboots of shows and movies that my parents or i have grown up watching...its unbelievable that they can get away with making these "reboots" when some of these movies arent that old and there also going to destroy the beauty that was the movie the first time around. and the cube was awesome, loved the first one...second was ok..the prequel sucked. so them making a new one to add onto the other 3 is stupid. they dont know how to leave a good movie alone and let it be famous. same thing applies to the POTC movies....shoulda left it alone.

      cube is one of my all time favorites, i loved the first saw movie but the scond was a total rip off of house of nine and the rest were just s****y gore flicks, a cube 4 could be awesome! if done right...lions gate, meh, bloody good horror (makers of V/H/S 1 & 2, Abc's of death) could blow this movie out of proportion and make it crazy good!
