Iconic serial killer Michael Myers absolutely REFUSES to stay buried, because the much-discussed third addition the Rob Zombie-birthed reboot of the franchise, Halloween 3-D, has officially been given an October 26th, 2012 release date - despite the fact that there is no official director OR script!
Back in 2009, Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer had been attached to take on the story, which would have picked up directly after Halloween II, as the former explained:
"The film we wrote took place like the next frame after Rob's ended, and immediately went into stripping Michael Myers back to his John Carpenter roots. You then pick up the story a year later, as Halloween rolls round again and everyone's back in the fray. We were very excited about the script we wrote, and [Halloween franchise owner] Malek Assad was very excited, and we loved him and we'd love to make the movie with him. But it's up to the grown-ups who are above our pay-grade."
However, the pair have since dropped out in order to focus on a Hellraiser remake, so who knows what's going to become of the project?
They better figure it out soon, though! Especially if a deadline has been put into place!
We don't want another Halloween II on our hands! Ugh, that mess was GARBAGE.
What do U think?? Do U want to see a Halloween III??
