‘Halloween’ Returns With ‘Halloween Returns’, Officially Minus Rob Zombie

Dimension Films and Trancas International Films have set a production start for next month on Halloween Returns, the next installation of the latest Halloween reboots that included 2007’s Halloween and 2009’s Halloween II, both helmed by Rob Zombie and both from Dimension’s The Weinstein Company (the former an MGM co-production). Zombie is not officially a part of this one, something he said after Halloween II bowed in August 2009 and made $33.4M domestically (the first one grossed $58.3M). Instead, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who wrote on several of the Saw films, penned the script, and Dunstan will direct. No plot has been unearthed yet.

Malek Akkad is set to produce with Matthew Stein as executive producer of the film, based on the 1978 John Carpenter original. Dimension Films’ Matthew Signer and Keith Levine are overseeing.

The reboots were terrible and this will be too. They should just carry it on from the last proper one.. Was it H20 or Resurrection? I cant remember..

There is something with 80's slasher/horror flicks that cannot be matched today. They were just genuinely creepy.

So called horror movvies today are pretty much all the same

It's like the horse is already dead, but they just keep flogging it anyways.

Well it can't be worse than the Halloween 2 remake, that ending was like the biggest "FU" I've seen in a film.

I actually liked the first Rob Zombie one. I liked that they dug deep into him growing up and with Dr Lumis. I never saw the 2nd. Heard it was god awful and didnt care.

the song still sends chills down my spine,... never could listen to that song alone or at night without getting weird about it and can't forget the theme song to unsolved mysteries too
