Halloween 3 Gains Some Momentum This Week

ON

HALLOWEEN3

This week, B-D said that The Weinstein Co./Dimension Films is building some sort of awareness for Halloween 3 at the Cannes film market. This is rather significant because the company has not said much about a threequel for quite some time. Still, I was hesitant to report because, honestly, they never stopped developing it. They've been kicking around a threequel since Rob Zombie's Halloween II came out.

As of last fall, when I spoke to some folks at Trancas International, they were still looking for the "right pitch" but were not finding it. So, it's not as if the project has died. It's always going. Just like TWC/Dimension are still looking for a right approach to Hellraiser. Projects quiet down, but it doesn't mean they're dead.

Alas, Bloody's report drummed up renewed excitement and prompted the HalloweenMovie.com site to issue a statement which said this:

As we stated before, we are dedicated to the fans of the Halloween series just as much as we are dedicated to delivering a film that we believe the fans deserve and will, most importantly, love. With that being said, we can confirm that a new installment of Halloween is indeed in on track and moving forward. We are currently developing a script, to finally bring Michael back to the theaters!”

Okay, now that posits the idea that they've found a "take" on the material and perhaps we'll be hearing about the writer who is on board! More as it comes in, folks…
