Small news story for a Sunday, but of interest of Halloween fans….
The Halloween franchise has been in limbo since the disaster of H2 by Rob Zombie that was universally panned by critics and hated by fans.
It seemed that of all the false deaths, it was the deft style of Zombie that killed off Michael Myers and with rumblings of a new film for the past few years, nothing much has been developing.
Well Producer Malek Akkard the son of Moustapha Akkad has been speaking in a conference and has admitted that a new script is due.
“It’s been a joy to work with so many creative people – ten films. We’re working on eleven as we speak. We’re working on a script right now. A new draft – perfect timing – is supposed to hit the day before Halloween. Hopefully my Halloween night will be a good read.”
No news yet of who is writing but it is believed that the style will go back to Carpenter roots……
Either way, expect Halloween part 3 to hit cinema’s next year…..probably in October…..
