After weeks of speculation we can now confidently report that the person taking over the reins of the Halloween franchise will be none other than Patrick Lussier, director of My Bloody Valentine 3D.
Lots of names have been floating around about who will helm Halloween 3D for the Weinsteins (providing they work out their troubles by next summer). From Steve Miner to Alex Aja to My Bloody Valentine helmer Patrick Lussier. While all of these makes sense, it seems that Lussier's name is packing the heaviest punch.
We usually don't report on rumors because they often have a nasty habit of ending up being debunked, but it's hard not to see the logic in this tasty tidbit that has come across our desks.
In what seems like a reaction to Halloween II coming in third at the box office this weekend, Bob Weinstein has announced to the LA Times that a new sequel is already on the way. One that is free of Rob Zombie and to be shot in 3D.
