‘My Bloody Valentine’ Director In Talks For Halloween 3D?

Patrick Lussier, director of My Bloody Valentine 3D and editor of a ton of Wes Craven movies, (including the Scream series) has been apparently chatting with Dimension Films about directing the upcoming Halloween 3D, which is supposedly due out in the summer of 2010.

Rob Zombie (The Devil’s Rejects) had taken on directing responsibilities for the 2007  Halloween reboot and Halloween II which is in theaters now. Bob Weinstein (co-head of the Weinstein Co., parent corporation of Dimension Films) recently let it be known that Zombie won’t be directing Halloween 3D, despite the fact that the film is set to pick up right where Halloween II left off.

Halloween 3D is the eleventh film in the horror franchise, which dates back to 1978 with the original Halloween under director John Carpenter. The franchise has centered around the fictional (and doggedly murderous) character of Michael Myers, who goes on rampage after rampage – after rampage after rampage – on Halloween night.  The franchise has grossed more than $300MM worldwide.

Halloween 3D will join the Iron Man (allegedly) and Toy Story franchises – among others – in the salon of 3D makeovers.  A knife covered in blood sounds like the perfect object to be seen jutting out beyond the movie screen to me (but then again I have yet to see My Bloody Valentine 3D, so I have yet to be jaded by cheesy 3D horror gimmicks).

Aaannyway, it’s interesting that Halloween 3D hasn’t received an official green-light, yet the studio is already scouting directors? After what many considered a lackluster follow up from Zombie (including SR’s Kofi Outlaw) – and with the the box office returns for Halloween II looking slimmer and slimmer as the weeks go on, no doubt the Weinsteins will be thinking long and hard about the man (or woman) to helm the next installment.  

Our friends over at Bloody-Disgusting dug up this bit of information, go check ‘em out for a little more on it.  Or if you’re in the mood to ponder and share, who would you like to see directing Halloween 3D?

  1. Didn’t the original “Halloween III” not have Michael Myers in it?

  2. no, i think it was about witches

  3. halloween waz about mask controling ppl

  4. halloween 3 *

  5. “Silver Shamrock, la la la la laaa”, was the villain if I remember correctly. The film was called,,,”Halloween 3, Season of the Witch”. (Be-augcth!)
    A company ruled by Warlocks bent on world domination used Halloween and the tradition of “Trick or Treat” as a pagen ritual to sacrifice the worlds children to satan or was it tom cruise? No it was satan.

    The film was a complete 369% turn from the Mike Meyers bs…

    This would be considered a bold move by todays standards of reboots and remakes. (Sarcasm bite it)

  6. Did they remake part one and I missed it or something?

    H2 now H3? They were good in the 70′s-80′s…now they are stale and just dead…dead I say. I love horror but these remakes are just stupid.

    STOP IT!

    I won’t be seeing this one either.

  7. I really don’t think that there should be another Halloween movie. I mean, come on! Rob killed him. You can’t make him supernatural because that would just be stupid. That’s where the whole series went bad before. Honestly, what is the point of even fighting someone who can’t die? There is none. Leave it alone, with him dead.

    If you saw Halloween 2 you’ll notice Michael finally dies and the final scene is of his sister in what appears to be a asylum. She begins seeing the same hallucinations/visions of her mom that drove Michael to do the things he did and slowly begins to smile. It’s pretty obvious the direction that they want to go in for the 3rd film in having the sister be the new “killer”.

  9. Yeah, I saw it. And I understood that, but still. It’s a cheap way to get things going again. I think it’s safe to say that the little itty bitty Laurie won’t be manhandling her way through security guards like Michael did in the first one. And I am pretty sure it was a solitary confinement so I don’t see her escaping at all. It’s a big stretch of the imagination to get her out of there. It should just be over, but you’re right. Someone will use that to their advantage to keep the machine churning.

  10. Ya that’s the same thoughts I had when I saw the ending. I just kept thinking how she would get out and how unbelievable it is for that girl to physically do all the killings like Michael did. It’s not believable. I came to the conclusion that the only possible way would be for her to entice men sexually with her body and then kill them. Of course, at that point it would just become something similar to that megan fox movie “Jennifer’s Body”.

  11. @Jon, and @ORI
    Wouldn’t it also be a possibility for them to scrap the piece of crap that was “Halloween II”? And pick up from where “Halloween Resurrection” left off? I can’t say that I would be completely for it… but, I think I’d like to have them do that one– instead of watching Laurie Strode whore herself out to the guards.
    Dunno if either of you saw “Halloween Resurrection”, but Micheal does live. For what purpose, I haven’t any idea. They could go back to numbers 4,5, and, 6. Where he killed Laurie Strode’s daughter, but never found the daughter’s kid.
    The eventual point of Meyers was for him to kill all of his family, and that would make the voices stop.
    I think I’ve just gone on and talked entirely too much, to two people that I don’t know… but there it is. In descent English…

  12. Personally, I hated Rob Zombie's reboots of the series. I couldn't get through 20 minutes of the first one and refused to see the 2nd one. The only thing those films showed was gore, violence, sex and so much cursing it was ridiculous. They had no backbone and mystery that the original films had, just a monsterous, unrealistic version of Michael Myers and bunch of little-known actors (with the exception of the brilliant Danielle Harris) who dropped the F-bomb after practically every word. There's no creativeness or respect to the fans who loved the original movies. I'd love to hear John Carpenter's take on the Zombie films…

  13. The remakes were good, I mean Rob Zombie is a genious and he rounded off some rough edges from the originals and filled in some blanks. But honestly they need to either keep going with the originals or find a way to kill Michael Myers once and for all. Halloween: Ressurection (spelling?) Michael was still alive at the end, we all know it.. like I said either keep going (cause personally every few years I would love to see another Myers flick) or… just have one more spectaclar movie and kill the demon child off for good.

  14. i think that halloween 3d should be picked up where halloween resurrection left off because this is the best way to do it micheal myers did not die in resurrection they need to continue the storyline that would make sense to do it this way i do not want to see micheal myers in a hoodie with a beard on i want to see the real true micheal myers with the mask on and the one that does not talk that’s the micheals myers that i want to see in halloween 3d instead of it being halloween 3d i think it should be halloween 9 asylum if john carpenter helps out in this halloween movie that would be awesome he is the best but again like i said before halloween 3d should be based on halloween resurrection where it left off this is the best way to do this would make alot of sense .
