Those of you who've been waiting for the return of everyone's favorite Captain Kirk-masked serial killed since he was last seen in Rob Zombie's Halloween 2, well, you're gonna have to wait a little longer. Dimension has pulled director Patrick Lussier's Halloween 3D from its 2012 calendar, claiming it won't be ready in time for this year's holiday. Details after the break.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Paramount's Paranormal Activity 4 will now have Halloween largely to itself... Dimension Films confirmed on Thursday that it has removed Halloween 3D from the release calendar. The Weinstein Co.'s genre division said the movie won't be ready in time for a scheduled Oct. 26, 2012 bow."
"Paranormal 4, which opens Oct. 19, is now the one horror film positioned to make a bid for fans of scary movies.
"In 2007, Dimension rebooted the long-running Halloween franchise, which consisted of eight previous films . That version, simply titled Halloween and released stateside through MGM, grossed $80.3 million worldwide. In 2009, the company followed up with Halloween II, which grossed $39.4 million worldwide.
"For the latest incarnation of the series, Dimension has been working with writer/director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer, who collaborated on 2009's My Bloody Valentine and 2011's Drive Angry.
"Dimension has not set a new date for Halloween 3D."
