Platinum Dunes In Talks To Do Next 'Halloween'

Halloween II, 2009
Though the film right remain with Dimension Films, it seems as though the powers that be are interested in Platinum Dunes taking over the reins of the Halloween franchise.  Five years ago I would have thought this was a fantastic idea.  Now...not so much -- but you never know...
While some of you may think this is an April Fool's joke, it's not. Bloody Disgusting can exclusively report that Platinum Dunes is in talks to take the producing reigns on Dimension Films' forthcoming Halloween sequel. Word has it that Michael Myers' return will not be in 3-D, nor will it instill the popular found footage model, which was originally being explored for the potential Friday the 13th sequel. We're hearing that Platinum Dunes is out to writers and directors, which could mean that - and as much as we personally love them - My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry duo Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier are no longer involved. Platinum Dunes' Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are responsible for remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare On Elm Street, as well as originals like The Unborn and Horsemen. They're in post on the futuristic horror Vigilandia, as well as developing the latest Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles adaptation.
