Michael Bay Gets His Hands On The ‘Halloween’ Sequel

Halloween
Dimension Films

There’s been many horror franchises that have been remade in the past decade, one of those being the ‘Halloween‘ series. They may be moving forward with a sequel but it’s not with the production company you’re thinking.

Bloody Disgusting reports that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes, the same production company that’s driving fans of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles‘ up a wall, has scooped up the ‘Halloween’ franchise and are moving forward with the sequel. It’s not much of a surprise that Platinum Dunes are getting their hands on a well-known horror property. They’ve worked on the recent ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ movie along with ‘The Amityville Horror’ which starred a grizzly-looking Ryan Reynolds.

The big question is what Dunes will be doing from this point further with the ‘Halloween’ name. Will they be rebooting it in their own way again, even though it’ll be a sequel? That’ll be a bit frustrating for the fan base who already have tried to adjust to Rob Zombie’s version only to deal with another version. The question is who they’ll be hiring to write the sequel and who will direct it.

Yes, one of the biggest downsides over this sudden acquisition is that ‘Drive Angry 3D’ and ‘My Bloody Valentine’ writers Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier won’t be putting together the script for the ‘Halloween’ sequel. They were originally signed on to write up the script but thanks to the shift that’s not the case, which means that Platinum Dunes will be looking for some new writers.
