Last month we heard from Tom Atkins about his possible role in Halloween 3D had Dimension Films proceeded with the script written by Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, and now Lussier himself has chimed in with a few more details on the project.
In a recent chat with MTV the writer/director explained that he and Farmer intended ‘Halloween 3D’ to be a natural extension of [Rob] Zombie’s ‘Halloween II,’ while at the same time returning the franchise to its origins.
“The film that we wrote took place, like, the next frame after Rob’s ‘Halloween II’ ended and immediately went into stripping Michael Myers back to his John Carpenter roots,” Lussier said, referring to the creator of the ‘Halloween’ franchise. “That’s what we did very quickly. And then you pick up the story a year later as Halloween rolls around again. Everybody’s back in the fray. That was our goal.”
As for whether or not he’d take the job were the Weinsteins to come calling again for him to bring his and Todd’s script to life, “If things were to work out…” he said, trailing off. “Right now my focus is on ‘Drive Angry’.”
Stay tuned, and keep your fingers crossed that maybe Dimension will finally get its act together on Halloween 3D.
