Exclusive: Patrick Lussier Confirmed to Direct Halloween 3D

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.

Yeah, I think I really would be happy if they left the HALLOWEEN franchise alone. I will always watch the original I and II every year around Halloween, and pretty much not pay attention to anything else. I do watch the other films if they pop up on cable, but do not maker a point to stick them in the DVD player to sit and watch them.I still haven't seen Zombies II, and don't know if I'll even bother. I would see this though just to see it and hope it is enjoyable to view.

MBV3D was pretty mediocre, and i say that as a Supernatural fan.

Dude! MBV3D was awesome! It was FUN which is what slashers are all about, and it was the most fun I've had with a slasher in years...kinda makes me wonder what they would have done with the F13 remake...anyway...this could be AWESOME!! And I don't care what anyone says about Jason X either, it was fun...even with Uber Jason...though that was kinda...dumb. We'll see!

"Jason X" was directed by Jim Isaac...

...Written by Todd Farmer; I think that was the point of the Jason X reference.

Honestly, that doesn't exactly spell "win" for me; but at least the series is out of Zombie's hands.

No, for the love of God that does not spell win. MBV3D sucked. It sucked hard. The kills were uninspired, the 3D was lame and the writing was atrocious even for a slasher film. Michael's body was in the ground. Zombie's urine marked his tombstone. Just let him R.I.P.!

I love ya Creepy, but I think you need to lay off the weed.
