*Not An April Fool's Joke* Platinum Dunes in Talks For The Next 'Halloween'

New postby NatBrehmer » Sun Apr 01, 2012 7:16 pm

Not an April Fool's Joke: Platinum Dunes, the company behind the remakes of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Amityville Horror, The Hitcher, Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street, are now being rumored to be "in talks" with Dimension Films to take a shot at the 'Halloween' franchise.

Reportedly, the new film will no longer be in 3D and it is safe to assume that with this change in direction, originally hired writers Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier are no longer involved.

Bloody Disgusting made the initial report this morning leading us to believe that this was already a done deal, however it is now being reported By Shock Till You Drop that Platinum Dunes isn't the only contender that's eager to take the reigns of the franchise. It should be noted that Platinum Dunes and Dimension previously teamed-up on the successful remake of The Amityville Horror, so if the pair decide to actually team up again it shouldn't be that much of a shocker.

As for the direction of the film, we're already hearing that a pitch has been made by Platinum Dunes which could involve a straight-up continuation of what Rob Zombie started. However, it has also be hinted that we may see yet another reboot. Neither one of these scenarios have yet to be confirmed, so for now we'll chalk 'em up as rumor.

Time will tell if any of this actually comes to fruition. What do fans think - reboot, continuation or let the franchise die? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.

I'm so sick of this fuckery.. but then again as long as Rob has NADA to do with it then w.E iGuess. Grateful that is still going to happen regardless so that's a plus.

Platinum Dunes have been pretty good at remakes. I mean imo TCM was prolly the best remake since... ever. Fri the 13th, Amityville and the hitcher were pretty good. ANOES, i dont even wanna go there. But with that track record id be all for this! glad to see theyve dropped the 3d BS. Hope it does happen! Hopefully theyll take there time and itll get a 2013 halloween release date

Aside from Elm Street, Platinum Dunes hasn't been too bad on the remake front, but I think a reboot is needed. I liked Rob's vision, but he pretty much wrapped it up with H2.

It's too soon for a reboot already, thought if they can make it totally different, go for it. But I vote for a continuation.
