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:
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…
