I don’t like to post rumors that we haven’t checked out yet, but other websites are already reporting the rumor, so we might as well too. A reader by the name of “The Egg Man” e-mailed all of us claiming that they know who is directing Halloween 3D, which was just announced yesterday after a less than stellar opening weekend for Michael Myers. Read on to see what our reader has heard and remember to keep this filed under rumor until we confirm.
From THE EGG MAN:
“I figured I would let you in on a little info that came my way via my agent. I don’t know if this is 100% accurate, but if it is, it wouldn’t surprise me.
Word is, that the person who will be directing this next film, not only has horror experience, but also has experience with Michael Myers, and 3-D films as well.
I heard that Dimension is in negotiations with STEVE MINER to come back to the franchise. Steve directed Halloween:H20, as well as Friday the 13th parts II and III. Do whatever you want with this info. If you choose to use it, feel free to call me THE EGG MAN.”
Well, we’ve got an e-mail out to Mr. Miner and will let you know what he says as soon as he returns. Miner also directed the Day of the Dead direct-to-DVD release from First Look.
The reason I DON’T believe this rumor is that I’ve been doing some heavy digging since it was announced and have learned that Dimension Films might have actually jumped the gun on the announcement, and still have yet to decide if they’re doing it or not.
As always, we’ll keep you posted, and remember RUMOR, RUMOR, RUMOR.
