While Halloween 3D is currently sitting on the backburner, production is imminent under the guise of Patrick Lussier. He’s got some other projects to tackle before cleansing Haddonfield of its unfortunately while trash palette, but that hasn’t stopped Lussier from lining up his ranks, beginning with a familiar face for the FX work.
According to Shock Till You Drop, Gary Tunnicliffe was attached to do the FX work for Halloween 3D shortly before Dimension put the project on hold. There’s no word on whether or not Tunnicliffe will return to the project when production resumes, but given his history with the director, it seems within the realm of possibility.
We also don’t know whether or not Michael Myers will remain a hulking hobo who spends his days trekking through fields and stomping on strip club employees, sans Halloween mask, but here’s hoping that Lussier will be given the freedom to step away from the mess left by Rob ‘motherfuckin’ Zombie and give us something more in line with the best sequel (Halloween 4, for my money).
UPDATE! Shock Till You Drop got even more nifty details this afternoon, including the approach – straight from Gary Tunnicliffe’s mouth! I was very sad to see H3D halted…Patrick was really amped up to deliver something the fans would really like, the script was very cool, great fun and the ‘vibe’ was to take the movie back to the tone and feel of the original film but with 3D technology and some VERY cool kills.”
