What started back in 1978 and became one of cinema’s iconic franchises and follow-up sequels just lost traction with a supposed reboot of the series. After Rob Zombie’s 2009 sequel ‘Halloween II‘, there has been little movement in the studio working towards a third installment. When it was announced Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunston would scribe the next installment there were going to be a few tweaks. But since then nothing has happened and now The Weinstein Company has lost the rights to the franchise. So where does the series go from here? The future isn’t so certain.
At this point in the franchise and having been rebooted by Rob Zombie that wasn’t taken too lightly by audiences, it’s not looking too good for the fans. As much as we’d like to see Hollywood move on from the original faces of horror and bring something new to the genre more then likely studios will resurrect the old somehow some way. A delay in production could spell good news if the studio wants to get it right or will only bring doubt to those behind the series that there are no new avenues to take. Eventually we will see a sequel, prequel, or even another reboot down the line but as for now we are totally in the dark.
