I recently posted an article on what I thought was to be true about the next film in the Halloween franchise.
Which fortunately (or unfortunately) was a hoax and a very believable one at that as it fit right into all of the speculative news that's been released regarding the movie so far.
With some reports saying the next Halloween may be a sequel, and others saying it's actually going to be another reboot. The false news hinted that the new film would be a cross between the two, almost like how Halloween 4 was to the original two Halloween films back in 1988; which was a new story/sequel to this already well known franchise.
This update has been confirmed by the official website for the Halloween franchise. And had this to say about the brand new film.
''We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter. It seems that’s the latest buzz surrounding the next Halloween film and again it’s just not true. As we stated before, a new instalment of Halloween is indeed on track and moving forward and we are currently developing a script, to finally bring Michael back to the theaters!''
''More information will be released over the coming months and exclusively at Halloweenmovies.com. So make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, so you can know first!''
And so now we're back at square one...or two, or whichever one we were at before. I think though, new information regarding the next film will be released very soon now.
Halloween 3 is an upcoming horror film being put out by Dimension Films and producer Malek Akkad. No official casting or directing news has been released of yet. The direction the movie is going in is still unclear, and the year of release has yet to be announced as well.
