Weinstein Company Getting Into Video Games: Forms TWC Games

The Weinstein Company, know for such film series as Scream, Hellraiser, and Children of the Corn, is getting into gaming.

The film company announced today it is forming TWC Games, with the idea of utilizing The Weinstein Company and Dimension Films' "strong and recognizable properties" by partnering with video game companies to "develop and publish video games for mobile, social, and console platforms."

“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," TWC Co-Chairman Bob Weinstein said in a statement.

TWC Games has formed a strategic consultancy with Beefy Media, a video game production company, to foster relationships with publishers and "create high quality games."  Beefy Media President, Adam Boyes, will work closely with Matthew Signer, TWC Vice President, Production and Creative Affairs, to foster strategic partnerships and oversee all production aspects of the games.

So, a new gaming venture is born. My question: Which of Dimension Films' properties would actually make a decent game?
