Micheal's Not Going Anywhere
"Halloween II" may not have won the box office this weekend, but Weinstein Co. is taking a lesson from the movie that did as it prepares a sequel for next summer.

The independent studio's co-Chairman Bob Weinstein said today that the 3-D sequel, titled, appropriately enough, "Halloween 3D," is in development.

The investment it takes to shoot movies in digital 3-D has proved particularly lucrative for horror films. For "The Final Destination," this weekend's No. 1 movie, theaters with at least one 3-D screen earned 3.25 times as much as those that showed the movie in 2-D only, according to distributor Warner Bros. That's substantially higher than for other recent releases. The equivalent 3-D multiple for last month's "G-Force," for instance, was only 1.7 on its first weekend. For July's "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" it was 1.4 andm for June's "Up" it was 2.2. January horror flick "My Bloody Valentine" earned 6.4 times as much from 3-D theaters as it did from 2-D on its opening weekend.

Weinstein said Rob Zombie, who directed "Halloween II" and 2007's reboot of the 31-year-old horror series, won't return for "Halloween 3-D." He said the studio is in negotiations with a new director, whom he declined to name, who has experience in horror and has a "different take" on the franchise.

Seriously, talk about milking a franchise for all its worth. What are they going to do now? Revamp the series again?

Right? I saw the second film and thought it was god awful. There's no way a 3-D movie will help Halloween.

The Epic Fail called-

has already happened. I suppose the good thing is how worse can it get from here?

Let's say the 3D part is just a gimmick and the director actually turns out to be John Carpenter returning to make a real sequel for the original series. Maybe a possible chance Laurie Strode makes a comeback having survived her fall?

Oh great :rolleyes: ITS A REBOOT.
Weinstein said the planned "Halloween 3D" represents a second franchise "reboot," with Zombie to be replaced by an unnamed new director for the project. "We wanted to see if there was still life in it," Weinstein said. "We think we can do something with it in 3D."

A second reboot....you cannot be serious right? We JUST visited the first halloween in 2007 and it looks like we'll be doing so once again.

Who cares. Halloween´s not going anywhere it seems and we can´t do anything about it anyway. I enjoyed RZH and H2 for what it was and they could hardly make another sequel.

What sucks more is the 3D news...

I'd almost rather see it be a random hack and slash movie than a reboot. I don't care why Michael does what he does. :p
