Halloween 3D Gets Delayed
So Patrick Lussier can make Drive Angry

01 October 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: ComingSoon.net

Halloween 3D has been put on the back-burner by Dimension Films.

The move was made after Dimension received the first draft of the script, by Todd Farmer, on Friday of last week. With a November start date planned in order to allow new director Patrick Lussier – replacing Rob Zombie in the big chair – time to move onto his Nic Cage-starring 3-D revenge car chase flick, Drive Angry, which begins in April, it’s believed that Dimension boss Bob Weinstein felt that the window was too small to ensure delivery of a quality product.

Now, delaying a film – particularly a horror sequel – in order to improve its quality is an all-too-rare move in Hollywood, so we applaud Weinstein’s decision in this case. Of course, the continuing adventures of Michael Myers will eventually make it to the big screen – 3-D specialist Lussier, who also directed My Bloody Valentine 3-D, will presumably return to the project once Drive Angry is wrapped.

Halloween II – the Zombie-directed sequel that tanked commercially and critically in the States when it opened in August – opens next Friday, October 9.

Shocking
3D...it's like being back in the 50's when it was all the rage. Why not go the whole hog and do a William Castle and put an electric current through selected chairs like he did with the Tingler...however, up the voltage and select only the anoying sods who talk through movies and make more noise with their food than a 747 coming into land.
