Exclusive: Patrick Lussier Confirmed to Direct Halloween 3D

Published

Exclusive: Patrick Lussier Confirmed to Direct Halloween 3DAfter 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.

Halloween 3D is going into production early this November for what we can only speculate will be a late summer release. Which brings us to another question … What does that mean for Lussier’s recently announced Drive Angry with Nicolas Cage?

Rest assured that film is very much still happening. A trusted source close to the production of both films has told us exclusively that the two projects are extremely important to Lussier and company, and production of Drive Angry will begin immediately after Halloween 3D is completed.

In fact, production on H3D isn’t affecting Drive Angry in the slightest bit because the Cage vehicle was always scheduled to begin filming spring of next year. Lussier can still hit that without a hitch. Halloween 3D has simply slid through the perfect window for the team working on it, and that’s a very good thing for us fans.

With Lussier now on board, you can bet Todd Farmer will be writing the script for H3D, and that too spells win. With My Bloody Valentine the pair proved that they know not only how to do 3D, but how to successfully revitalize a slasher film.

And let’s not forget … this isn’t Lussier’s first trip to Haddonfield as he served as editor on Halloween: H20. He knows the character, knows the series, and respects the power that it has amongst the fan base.

Finally Michael Myers will be coming home again in what I can only imagine will be top form, and we will have our franchise back. I almost feel as if we’re waking from a bad nightmare. Look for more including the official announcement soon.
