Platinum Dunes In Line For The Latest Halloween Film

Chris Savage

Remember Dimension Films’ Halloween 3D? Yeah, it was meant to be released this October but it appears there was a slurry of problems or obstacles along the way and it just doesn’t look like its happening.

However, B-D is reporting that Platinum Dunes are in line to take the reins of the latest Halloween film. The site states that the latest Halloween film will NOT be in 3D and it will not be shot in the found footage style which was once thrown around.

At this time, Platinum Dunes are currently on the hunt for writers and directors to get this one going, so it looks as if Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer are no longer involved, but who knows considering the history of this film.

Which direction would you like to see them take? Follow Rob Zombies story or something completely original? Maybe you would just like to see this franchise end?

        I’m glad Halloween 3 won’t be in 3D and won’t be found footage but as for style.Have it modern in the timeline Rob Zombie set only have it go back to Carpenter’s feel in the franchise.

        Have Laurie get cured and attempt to put her life back on track by going to college.Give her a love interest,explain how Michael goes from trying to reunite with Laurie. To trying to kill her like how the original franchise add some suspense to the third film. And last but not least bring back the music style from Carpenter’s Halloween.

        Platinum Dunes makes terrible movies almost all the time. The only good movies they made were The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Hitcher, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Also if this happens it would mean the end of the Akkad family being involved in the franchise as PD would take take over almost all of the producing role.
