Hey! Remember that flick by Michael Dougherty that we were so excited about this year (“Exclusive: Trick ‘r Treat Set Visit!” – April 2007)? Remember when it was supposed to come out this past Halloween, but went missing?
There were rumors that the pic was going to be released in February of ’08, and that just sounded horrible. Sure, it would be out sooner but a film about Halloween shouldn’t come out around Valentine’s Day, that’s just stupid.
A new rumor surfaced recently from AICN‘s Harry Knowles. During his annual “Butt-Numb-A-Thon” Harry screened a number of movies, including Michael Doughtery’s Trick ‘R Treat. Harry also announced that the film would be seeing an October 2008 release date!
Not being ones to just follow Mr. Knowles’ word, we contacted Mr. Dougherty directly and asked him if this was true. His response to us was, “Actual release date is still TBD, but HOPING for Oct ’08.” So there ya have it … a big maybe. That’s better than random speculation, for sure.
