Today, Dimension Films and Trancas International Films announced Halloween Returns, following a morning of speculation spurred on by Moviehole’s exclusive report of its plot. Though the official announcement kept story under wraps, the site reported Halloween Returns as the tale of an 18 year-old child of a cop, whose parent is obsessed with the Myers case. As Myers is set to be executed, the shape escapes and stalks once again. Who is this cop, and what connection to the series does he bear?

Shock has learned Halloween II’s Deputy Gary Hunt—who you may remember from the 1981 sequel as the blonde officer who accompanies Dr. Loomis to the school on the night he came home—appears in Halloween Returns, now as sheriff. This leaves Halloween Returns connected to the original series, unrelated to Rob Zombie’s films and—in contemporary fashion—not concerned with later sequels.

Production on Halloween Returns is set to get underway this July. Marcus Dunstan & Patrick Melton penned the film. Dunstan directs.
