Well, that was fast. Mind you, I’m not knocking the Schmoes Know guys – they’re a good group – but I had to do some due diligence and dig into today’s Halloween rumors.
I reached out to producer Malek Akkad who told me the news “is not accurate” and there’s really not enough info to share on the progress of the next film at this time. It is in development, however.
Meanwhile, over at the official Halloween Movies Facebook page, the following message:
Weve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter. It seems thats the latest buzz surrounding the next Halloween film and again its just not true. As we stated before, a new installment of Halloween is indeed in 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!
So there you go!
