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.
Variety reports today that the director with whom the ailing company has been in talks to clean up the mess left behind by Rob Zombie is indeed Patrick Lussier. Yet, here’s the rub — the guy is super busy with Drive Angry now taking the first priority slot on his directorial slate. Could that change? Never say never.
We spoke with Patrick last week when the rumor came across our desks, but even he took an “ask me again a little later” type approach.
We’ll keep monitoring things for you in the hope that this happens. And that of it does, Lussier will grab Todd Farmer so the two of them can get busy doing the one thing fans have been clamoring for: the act of GIVING US BACK OUR MICHAEL MYERS! What do you guys think?
