Halloween (Jamie Lee Curtis Returns)

Post by WyldeMan on 6/16/2015, 1:46 pm


Dimension Films and Trancas International Films have set a production start for next month on Halloween Returns, the next installation of the latest Halloween reboots that included 2007’s Halloween and 2009’s Halloween II, both helmed by Rob Zombie and both from Dimension’s The Weinstein Company (the former an MGM co-production). Zombie is not officially a part of this one, something he said after Halloween II bowed in August 2009 and made $33.4M domestically (the first one grossed $58.3M). Instead, Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, who wrote on several of the Saw films, penned the script, and Dunstan will direct. No plot has been unearthed yet.

Halloween Returns will pit a new group of Haddonfield youngsters against Myers. The now 18-year-old child of one of Myers’ victims plays a central role along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter. Myers is now on death row and the two kids with their own personal vendettas against the killer sneak in to watch his execution. But when things go awry and Myers escapes, the pair, along with their friends, find themselves in the firing line. wrote:

Holy fuck what an atrocious plot. A failed execution death row escape plot? What is this, 1988?

How ironic would it be if the new Halloween 3 ended up being as bad as the first H3. Cool

Halloween III: Season of the Witch got so much hate, Mickey only popping up for two seconds.

Though many horror fans(myself included) have come to appreciate it over time. Especially since most of the sequels and RZ's reboot go from meh to simply awful.

I liked the first of Zombie's Halloween but as with all horror movies I pretty much watch them once and then almost never again. Horror movies have no replay value for me since they don't scare me and rarely have plots, the older I get the less interest I have in the entire genre.

Dimension Films Loses Rights To Halloween
Bloody Disgusting has an exclusive so shocking that I can’t even believe I’m reporting it.

I’m told that Dimension Films allegedly no longer has the rights to Halloween. I got nervous even writing that sentence, although our scoop has been confirmed as of Monday night.

Yes, if true, Michael Myers will no longer be controlled by The Weinstein Company, who has been behind the franchise for 20 years. They first produced the 1995 Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers, the sixth film in the franchise, and have since gone on to deliver us Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and Halloween: Resurrection, as well as Rob Zombie’s Halloween remake and its sequel, H2.

While they had been in development on a third film (potentially in 3-D) with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, what I’m hearing is that Miramax is starting over with Malek Akkad.

Allegedly, Miramax is shopping the franchise and seeking a new distributor.

If you want to speculate, how cool would it be if this were to land at Warner Bros./New Line or at Paramount Pictures? While the “Universe” pot is hot, could you imagine a shared universe with Michael Myers, Jason Voorhees, Freddy Krueger and Leatherface?

Leatherface and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre rights were once owned by New Line, as was Jason Voorhees (which was sent to Paramount in exchange to Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar). It is an absolute possibility to bring all of these horror icons under one roof. Someone’s just got to be proactive to make it happen.

Would love for this to turn into a chance to get a cross-over movie going. I just hope we see Michael return soon. Seems to be taking a long time to get another Friday, Nightmare, Chucky and Halloween movie going.

Friday= keep getting delayed
Nightmare= 2nd remake in the works
Chucky= being worked on
Halloween= who knows

Those franchises will just keep running until there is no steam left, the studios will make sure of this. I wouldn't worry too much, if there is any blood left in the stone, they'll be sure to get it.

Michael is Coming Home Once Again! New HALLOWEEN In The Works With Carpenter
John Carpenter, the multiple award-winning and legendary filmmaker and creator of the original Halloween films, will return to the franchise as executive producer on a new production of the iconic horror movie, it was jointly announced today by MIRAMAX and Trancas International Films — MIRAMAX and Blumhouse Productions will co- finance development and production, with Malek Akkad serving as producer under his Trancas banner and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. MIRAMAX, which holds worldwide distribution rights, will determine its theatrical distribution partner at a future date.

The HALLOWEEN film franchise that was started in part by Carpenter and Moustapha Akkad in 1978 has spawned ten films generating a total of nearly $400 million in worldwide box office.

John Carpenter said:

“38 years after the original Halloween I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.”

Malek Akkad said:

“Trancas International is thrilled to be teaming up with Miramax on Halloween, one of the most enduring horror franchises in film.

We are also very excited to be working with Jason Blum and the whole team at Blumhouse. Together, along with the return of legendary filmmaker John Carpenter, we are eager to make a film that will be a milestone in the franchise’s legacy and that will excite the fans, young and old.”

Zanne Devine, MIRAMAX’s EVP Film & Television, said:

“Malek Akkad’s legacy with the Halloween franchise accompanied by Blumhouse’s unprecedented talent in the horror genre lays the foundation of a formidable team to create the next chapter of this iconic fan favorite. Having John Carpenter godfather the reboot of the iconic franchise he helped create brings it full circle. We couldn’t be in better company bringing Halloween back to the big screen.”

Jason Blum added: “Halloween is one of those milestone films that inspired everyone at our company to get into the world of scary movies. The great Malek Akkad and John Carpenter have a special place in the hearts of all genre fans and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together. We cannot wait to find and collaborate with the right filmmaker to give Halloween fans the movie they deserve.”

David Thwaites will oversee the reboot for MIRAMAX® with Carpenter and the companies planning to immediately go out to filmmakers and fast-track the project. The Academy Award®-winning John Carpenter has written, directed, composed and/or edited over 20 films over the course of his career. An international household name, he is probably best known for his iconic features Halloween, The Thing, The Fog and Big Trouble in Little China, to name a few.

After shifting studios and delays, it was recently announced that Blumhouse Productions (Insidious, Sinister) will be producing the next installment of the Halloween franchise and the one and only John Carpenter will return to executive produce. There is no announcement yet on who will direct but rumors are swirling that Blumhouse favorite Mike Flanagan of Oculus and Hush fame is in the running as is Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest). The latest installment of Halloween is expected to hit theaters in October 2017.

Halloween & Down? David Gordon Green To Direct New Franchise Take, Pen Script With Danny McBride
Halloween creator John Carpenter just announced on his Facebook page that the planned reincarnation of his horror franchise just landed a a director and writer. David Gordon Green has been tapped to direct the new take, and is writing the script with his Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals collaborator Danny McBride.

Carpenter said in the post a release date is set for October 19, 2018, and a meeting with Gordon Green, McBride and Blumhouse’s Jason Blum this week did the trick to seal the deal. Said Carpenter: “I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away. I might even do the music.  Maybe. It could be kind of cool.”

The project was originally announced last spring by Miramax, Trancas International Films and Blumhouse, with Carpenter aboard as executive producer to see the franchise he launched with Moustapha Akkad to its 10th sequel since the 1978 original. At the time Miramax said the Michael Myers franchise has grossed $400 million in worldwide box office.

Miramax and Blumhouse will co-finance development and production of the new movie, with Trancas’ Malek Akkad and Blum producing now and Gordon Green and McBride executive producing via their Rough House Pictures. Zanne Devine and David Thwaites will oversee for Miramax.

“John Carpenter’s Halloween was a monumental horror film experience for me and millions of film fans,” Gordon Green said in a release confirming the project. “It’s an honor to be working with this creative team to carve a new path in the tale of Michael Myers.”

Added McBride: “David and I are thrilled to step outside of our comedic collaborations and dive into a dark and vicious horror. Nobody will be laughing.”

Miramax holds worldwide distribution rights to the franchise, and said in May it will determine its theatrical distribution partner. Blumhouse of course has mastered the genre game, with its latest pic Split just finishing its third box office weekend at No. 1. Up next it has Get Out written and directed by Jordan Peele hitting theaters February 24 after a sneak premiere at Sundance. Universal is distributor of both of those films.

Jamie Lee Curtis Returns For ‘Halloween’
Jamie Lee Curtis is getting back in her Halloween costume. The actress and Universal said today that she will return to play her iconic role of Laurie Strode in the new installment of the horror franchise that will hit theaters in October 2018.

Curtis tweeted the news today, complete with the first look at the character she first played in the 1978 original, and reprised in some fashion in five subsequent sequels and reboots:

"Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween. Release date 10/19/18." pic.twitter.com/IvptiZctyw
— Jamie Lee Curtis (@jamieleecurtis) September 15, 2017

Universal said in February that David Gordon Green and Danny McBride had crafted a new take on the franchise that introduced masked killer Michael Myers. Green is directing, and horror master John Carpenter, who co-wrote and directed the original, is executive producing with Green and McBride via their Rough House Pictures.

Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the series since its inception, is producing with Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions and Miramax.

Woah....did not expect this. Shocked

Since they're largely ignoring everything that came after H2, her death in Resurrection has been retconned.

It would be kinda cool to see Danielle Harris in this, too, but she was only in Halloween 4 and 5. She was also in the 2007 and 2009 films playing, of course, a different character than in 4 and 5.

I guess I'll check this one out. For the season!
