Here’s a rare treat for you cats. A look at a Halloween film that never was. Get set to dig on some stills and a video that tell of a far different Michael Myers rampage than what we got from Rob Zombie. Check it out!
According to Bloody Disgusting, the following video and images were created as a pitch for Dimension Films’ next Halloween, when Platinum Dunes was aboard to produce (they aren’t anymore). Federico D’Alessandro, the head storyboard artist and animatics supervisor over at Marvel Studios (who worked on Thor, Captain America, and Avengers as well as Iron Man 3 and Thor 2), contacted the site with an animatic video short and some keyframes used to sell himself to Platinum Dunes.
“As a lifelong ‘Halloween’ fan it would be a dream to direct a reboot of the franchise that’s so near and dear to my heart,” said D’Alessandro. “I created this animatic to show the tone and storytelling that I would bring to the project if I were lucky enough to have that chance.” He added, “It turned out pretty cool, but unfortunately while I was in the middle of working on it, talks fell through between Platinum Dunes and the Weinsteins…so I missed the boat on that one.”
