‘Halloween’ Remake Still on the Hot Plate

It sucks when you’re sworn to secracy, especially when we’re talking about a remake of John Carpenter’s Halloween! All I can tell you is exactly what the NY Times will tell you, that the Weinstein Brothers are planning to remake the film- at some point. They write, “Under the separation agreement between the Weinsteins and Disney, the brothers were given sequel rights to 15 franchise or potentially franchise projects, including a remake of Halloween.” Hopefully we’ll be able to tell you more when the agreement is completed. Watch this spot. In the original 1978 film, a psychotic murderer institutionalized since childhood escapes on a mindless rampage while his doctor chases him through the streets.
