Michael Myers is back again as Dimension Films and Trancas International Films have announced that production will start in July on the third movie of the Halloween reboots with Halloween Returns.
Rob Zombie, who helmed the first two, will not be back for Halloween Returns, but Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton (Saw, The Collector, Pacific Rim) are writing the script, with Dunstan directing.
The last big screen performances for Michael Myers were in Halloween (2007) Halloween II (2009). Malek Akkad is set to produce with Matthew Stein as executive producer. The log line is currently being kept under wraps.
“Michael Myers has taken a long break from the big screen and we know fans are eager to see him return. We are excited to be back in business with Trancas and look forward to bringing one of the scariest installments of this classic franchise to audiences worldwide,” said Bob Weinstein, co-chairman The Weinstein Company & Dimension Films.
“The legacy of Halloween is something that Trancas is very proud of, and I look forward to working together again with Bob and Dimension to continue that tradition,” said Akkad.
