Michael Bay Is In Talks To Produce The Next Halloween Movie

Michael Bay Halloween movie

Michael Bay has already put his magic touch on classic horror titles such as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, Friday the 13th, and A Nightmare On Elm Street, but is Halloween next?

Most recently, Rob Zombie directed two installments of the long-running horror franchise, but now reports suggest that Bay's Platinum Dunes production company may take over where the rocker and Dimension Films left off.

Dimension was planning a Halloween 3D for a fall 2012 release, but that has since fallen through, so Bay's team is in talks to take over.

As much as we love the Halloween franchise, we're glad the last idea for its reincarnation got shelved because it was described as "a 3D, found-footage installment." Call us cray cray, but we don't think found-footage films should be shot in 3D. Last we checked, Sony Handycams aren't equipped with that feature.

It sounds like producers were just planning on cashing in on the latest craze at the multiplex, instead of focusing on maintaining the artistic integrity of the horror franchise. Again, call us cray cray, but horror movies can have artistic integrity too! If Bay agrees to take on this profitable property, let's hope he remembers that.

    It couldn't be any worse than Rob Zombie's version. That was just an insult to the original.

    Re: berrybaby – Rob Zombie's version was surprisingly good. I love what he did with it.

    Re: berrybaby – I agree. I was ok with the first one it was not what I expected but I could respect the different take on it, but the second one was just awful to me.
