Halloween 3D Coming in Summer 2010

ON

The Los Angeles Times reports that The Weinstein Company is moving forward with Halloween 3D, a sequel to the Rob Zombie movies to be released in the summer of 2010.

Co-Chairman Bob Weinstein said Rob Zombie won’t return for Halloween 3-D. He said the studio is in negotiations with a new director, whom he declined to name, who has experience in horror and has a “different take” on the franchise.

Halloween II opened in third place this weekend with an estimated $17.4 million from 3,000 theaters. First place went to The Final Destination, which was filmed in 3D.
