Finally – New Halloween News!
It’s been forever since last we had some fresh Halloween news to dole out to you lovable loonies, but with patience comes reward! Read on for the latest on the next return of Michael Myers.
According to THR, Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the writers behind some of the installments of the hit Saw movies, have been tapped to pen the latest entry of the Halloween horror franchise for Dimension Films.
Malek Akkad, who has been associated with the franchise since the mid-1990s and producing the movies since the 2007 reboot, is producing with Matt Stein. He is the son of Moustapha Akkad, the man who executive produced the original batch of movies.
Rob Zombie directed the reboot and its 2009 follow-up, but no director is attached to the new installment, which has been in development for several years now. Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine) and Todd Famer were at one point working on a Halloween 3D, but since they departed years ago, it’s been quieter than a night in Haddonfield, Illinois.
Sources say it’s not a remake, not a reboot, and not a reimagining. One source said the project is a “recalibration.”
