(Original story published on April 30, 2014.)
The boogeyman is real and will return on Halloween.
Some really brief news out of Cannes has Michael Myers being resurrected. Our sources on the Cannes stomping ground tell us exclusively that The Weinstein Company is once again looking to get Halloween 3D off the ground. We don’t have the names of any writers or directors attached, although Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier had previously been working on a screenplay. While we may be back at square one, at least the Weinstein brothers once again have Michael Myers on the brain.
It’s unclear if this would be a re-remake, or another sequel to Rob Zombie’s modern take.
John Carpenter’s 1978 classic followed a psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood for the murder of his sister, who escapes and stalks a bookish teenage girl and her friends while his doctor chases him through the streets.
The franchise has spawned nine sequels and made over $500M worldwide collectively at the box office.
