There have been conflicting reports over the weekend about what is going on with the next installment of of the Halloween franchise. On Sunday, Bloody Disgusting reported that Platinum Dunes (The company who brought you remakes of Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Amityville Horror) would take over the next Halloween flick from longtime home at Dimension. This morning, Shock Till You Drop offered some clarification.
Bloody Disgusting is reporting that the new Halloween will not be 3D, nor will it utilize a found-footage device. No word yet on where exactly the film will fit into the current Halloween timeline. Platinum Dunes has taken the script out to writers and directors, so it is likely that Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine 3D) will no longer be involved.
However, this morning, Shock Till You Drop offered a little clarification, stating that Platinum Dunes is just one of the companies Dimension is in talks with, and it is very likely that Platinum Dunes - or whatever company comes in - will work with Dimension.
Both sites are reporting that no storyline has been settled on, and pitches are being considered for both a sequel to Rob Zombie's Halloween, as well as another reboot of the franchise.
