As fast as things were cooking is as fast as they’ve slowed down. Well, shut down temporarily at least. Production on Halloween 3D has ceased, but not to worry … it’s for a few good reasons.
According to Deadline Hollywood (and recently confirmed by director Patrick Lussier himself), the Halloween machine has shifted into low gear. Todd Farmer turned in his script on Friday, but the Weinsteins felt that the production was being rushed. Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D), who recently landed the gig, was to begin production by November so that he could start filming Drive Angry, with Nicolas Cage, early next year. So rather than rush things, Dimension Films is going to wait until Lussier is “free” so they can take their time.
Pretty smart move if you ask me. They recently rushed Zombie through his last Halloween film, and we all saw how that one turned out. Look for more soon, and hit up the above link for the full article.
