The Kidd here...
The Michael Bay bashing has been running rampant around here lately, with Bay's recent comments concerning something as beloved and nostalgic as the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles being rebooted. I get the feeling business is about to pick up once again now that Bay and his Platinum Dunes production company are talking about a deal that would have them involved with the future of the HALLOWEEN franchise.
According to Bloody Disgusting, Platinum Dunes would take the command in making another Michael Myers film happen over at Dimension. Another sequel, this time in 3-D, had been planned for later this year before it was quietly pulled from the slate with no further details. Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier had been involved in moving it forward, post-Rob Zombie, but it looks like they're going to be the odd men out with new directors and writers being sought.
Let's take a look at Platinum Dunes history in horror over the years - THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE remake, THE AMITYVILLE HORROR remake, the FRIDAY THE 13TH reboot, the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake...
Is anyone chilled enough to think HALLOWEEN is in capable hands given that track record with familiar horror properties?
