The Michael Myers legacy will continue on when Dimension Films, along with producer Malek S. Akkad, gear up for the latest entry in the Halloween franchise.
Back in May we exclusively reported that the next film was happening, and it was confirmed by the official Halloween website. Earlier this afternoon Schmoeville has reported that the title was going to be Halloween: The Next Chapter. But alas, it was untrue.
They wrote that the film would be a fresh new take on the Halloween legacy that would be a companion to the Zombie movies, which may or may not confirm Scout Taylor-Compton’s premature casting announcement. New writers were said to be attached and expected to turn in draft this fall.
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.
Zombie told a similar tale, while mixing in plenty of Zombie-isms. The sequel went in a more personal and brutal direction. What do you want from the next entry?
