New “Halloween” film to start filming in July…

Dimension announced that a new Halloween film is returning to the big screen and filming will begin in July. The title of the next installment will be, “Halloween Returns” and the script was written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan who wrote many of the “Saw” sequels. The film will also be directed by Marcus Dunstan.

The story is gonna be a standalone film — in which it won’t have anything to do with the original series or the two Rob Zombie films… here is the plot:

I’m sure Dimension really wanted Rob Zombie back but I remember Rob saying he would never do “Halloween 3”. I guess he wanted to move on from it. He wouldn’t tell us why…

So since Rob isn’t coming back for the next one, Dimension decided to come up with their own story.

I wonder what the Michael Myers mask is gonna look like for the next one? I hope they bring the original William Shatner mask back… I don’t want the Rob Zombie mask.

I know the two Rob Zombie films weren’t everyone’s favorite but I’m probably one of the very few who loved Rob’s two “Halloween” films. Yeah I loved them both! It’s kind of too bad he doesn’t want to come back to 3 but I understand how he wants to move on and do his own thing. Maybe it is best they move on without Rob since “Halloween II” didn’t do so well in the box office.

This new movie will probably come out next Halloween, not this year. Hopefully they do a good job with it.

Confirmed: Rob Zombie WILL direct “Halloween” sequel simply titled “H2″…

Yes, Rob Zombie has inked a deal with Dimension films that he is returning to direct the “Halloween” sequel. The next “Halloween” film will simply be titled “H2”, yes that’s it. With the letter “H” and “2” both together, making it “H2”, the next movie title. Rob Zombie will write and direct, “H2” ,just like he did with the first movie. Filming will begin in March and they hope to get an October release date of 2009.

The new film will leave off right where the first movie ended except the sequel “H2” will NOT be a remake of  1981’s “Halloween 2” which also starred Jamie Lee Curtis. In “Halloween 2” it was mostly taken place in a hospital, Rob Zombie’s version of the sequel will be a totally different story. This article doesn’t give anymore details on the plot though.

No word if Tyler Mane will return as the fictional serial killer, Michael Myers, he probably will.

You can also see a teaser poster that Dimension already made for the film here at Variety:

This is fantastic news!!! I’m so happy that Rob Zombie is on board for the sequel!!! YES!!!

Congrats to Rob. He had quite a career ride in the film business. He worked very hard to get into the movie business and now he is a big name film director thanks to “Halloween”.

Remember, Rob Zombie fought hard to get “House of 1,000 Corpses” a big screen release but no studio wanted to buy it off him because of it’s graphic content, but Lionsgate finally bought the movie off Rob and released it nationwide, the film became a hit. Then he released “The Devils Rejects” which also became a hit.

I’m looking forward to the sequel. I also hope Malcolm Macdowell will return as Dr. Loomis and I’m sure he will.
