" Michael Myers could return in the third part of the rebooted Halloween franchise. Production for Halloween 3D was halted in 2009 because The Weinstein Company couldn't provide the necessary budget. "
[Halloween 3](movie:388518) was initially due to be released on October 26th, 2012 but was halted due to a lack of funds.
Rumor has it that this movie will be directed by Patrick Lussier, and will have Scout - Taylor Compton to return as the mentally unstable Laurie ' Angel ' Strode. According to IMDB, the story is written by John Carpenter and Rob Zombie, so it will be different to say the least. My guess would be that it will be incredibly brutal and gory (much like the last two installments of the franchise).
Although I don't have high hopes that this will be a good movie, or that it will even do justice to the original franchise, it will be interesting to see where they take the story line, as they obviously aren't going to do a direct remake of the original 1982 ' Halloween 3 '
Another rumor that has been circling around is that there was to be a new Halloween movie released next year, named ' Halloween: Curse Of Thorn. ' - It was unclear as to whether this was to be a fan made film or the real deal, as it even had it's own IMDB page.
Unfortunately for us Halloween fans, it was a fan film. Even worse, it's not going to happen anymore.
What are your thoughts on a third Halloween remake?
Considering the fact that Rob Zombie's Halloween 2 was a complete train wreck, do you think they can bring back the franchise, or has Myers had his fair share of sequels?
Also, is it wise to call a movie ' Halloween 3D? ' There was a ' Texas Chainsaw ' 3D and well, look how that turned out!
Are you looking forward to seeing the new Halloween 3D?
