Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, the writing pair behind Saw IV-VII, the Feast films and The Collector and Collection are currently at work on a new iteration of Halloween, or recalibration, to follow up the Rob Zombie films. Announced in February, the first word on whats apparently titled Halloween Returns is coming in.
On Saturday, Moviehole reported Halloween Returns will trail a new generation of Haddonfield teens caught in the grip of Michael Myers. In the film, Myers is apprehended and facing execution.
Update: Bloody D is now reporting co-writer Marcus Dunstan will direct Halloween Returns. Dunstan previously helmed both The Collector and The Collection, the latter a stylish, colorful piece of horror.
The film, with a parental cop and Haddonfield setting seems to be placing a new slasher in classical Halloween fashions. Casting is reportedly underway on the film. Shock has reached out for comment in light of the story making rounds. As we wait for confirmation, find a curious Twitter exchange between Melton and a fan, below.
