Although Rob Zombie started the Halloween reboot in 2007 and followed it up with Halloween II in 2009, he will not be onboard for Halloween III, which is currently slated to hit the theaters on October 26, 2012.
Earlier this summer, Trancas International, the production company behind the movie, announced that they had started the production, but they didn’t reveal anything about the cast or the crew though.
However, before the production came to a stop in 2009, the director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer was onboard, with a story that picked up after the last frame of Zombie’s Halloween II. Since then the duo has been occupied with the Hellraiser reboot, but I guess it’s safe to assume that they are the ones that will serve us Halloween III, nonetheless.
Would be kind of strange if they would bring another director and script to the table, considering that a release date has been set? Yet, since release dates are seldom set in stone, things can still change for Halloween III, but I really hope that they manage to deliver this bad boy to us next fall. Anyway, stay tuned for future updates regarding Halloween III.
What are your thoughts about Rob Zombie being absent from Halloween III, good or bad?
