On October 9th, Sony
told everyone it had formed a new production company, Stage 6 Films, with the intent of producing from 10 to 15 movies annually for DVD and theatrical release.
Stage 6 will both acquire and produce the content
, much of it earmarked as prequels and sequels to established movies.
Sony spokesperson Fritz Friedman said the unit’s strategy will be similar to what the studio did with producing and releasing Daddy Day Camp — the sequel to 2003’s Daddy Day Care.
