'Halloween 3D' coming in summer 2010

HalloweenII "Halloween II" may not have won the box office this weekend, but Weinstein Co. is taking a lesson from the movie that did as it prepares a sequel for next summer.

The independent studio's co-Chairman Bob Weinstein said today that the 3-D sequel, titled, appropriately enough, "Halloween 3D," is in development.

The investment it takes to shoot movies in digital 3-D has proved particularly lucrative for horror films. For "The Final Destination," this weekend's No. 1 movie, theaters with at least one 3-D screen earned 3.25 times as much as those that showed the movie in 2-D only, according to distributor Warner Bros. That's substantially higher than for other recent releases. The equivalent 3-D multiple for last month's "G-Force," for instance, was only 1.7 on its first weekend. For July's "Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs" it was 1.4 andm for June's "Up" it was 2.2. January horror flick "My Bloody Valentine" earned 6.4 times as much from 3-D theaters as it did from 2-D on its opening weekend.

Weinstein said Rob Zombie, who directed "Halloween II" and 2007's reboot of the 31-year-old horror series, won't return for "Halloween 3-D." He said the studio is in negotiations with a new director, whom he declined to name, who has experience in horror and has a "different take" on the franchise.

First of all, Rob Zombie ruined the franchise of Halloween by making it nothing but a continual bloody and worthless slahser. The whole story-line sucked compared to the original, and his take on violence and gore distracted the psychopathic view of Myers. The supernatural crap also made it kinda lame. The 2nd installment was an absolute waste of time, and his inclusion of the rape scene in the first film made me completely lose my respect for him as a director. He also made every single character have nothing but bad morals and absolutely no distinction between right and wrong. There was no good people in the entire damn movie. There was no good vs evil because every person swore up and down and had the same demonic and sadistic lifestyle that Rob Zombie lives everyday. The originals are better, and I know it's hard to remake such a classic film, but he could have done a lot better to stick closer to the original film. Thank God they are having someone else do the 3rd installment remake.

Hey why wont all of you get a life. John Carpenter told him to do what he wants and thats exactly what he did. He didnt ruin the series at all this is his time to shine. Why would carpenter be mad at all if that was the case then he should of made another hallowen movie after ressurection to tell you the truth ressurection really fucked up the whole franchise not zombies because this is his vision. So stop running all your little mouths and get a fucking life

I am so glad rob is not going to kill another halloween for me
with his u-bomber look let's bring back the real mike.

Halloween 3D Will Be Awesome

so is this going to be a sequal or what? is this another remake , is it have the original music? what is myers gonna look like , is he gonna look like the washed up hobo in H2? i want to know this info


Rob Zombie shouldn't be aloud to direct any remakes . All and i do mean all of his movies are basically the same. (I.E. Devils rejects). If he insists on making movies he should just stick to his shitty movies and leave the ones I remember fondly alone.

Ugh, this is going to be Season of the Witch all over again.


IM SOOOO TIRED OF IT. Zombie sucks. This 3D idea sucks. 2007 and 2009 remakes of it SUCKED. Why can't someone just take up where halloween ressurrection left off and finish the ORIGINAL series??? i want an ACTUAL end to the ACTUAL story!! no more remakes!! why are we taking this the route of jason/friday the 13th?? freddy vs jason...GAY....Jason x in space? GAY!!! will there ever be anyone out there with common sense enough to say "Hey...remember how michael opened his eyes at the end of that train wreck movie Ressurrection? why dont we make one more good solid original halloween movie and end the series for good on its original terms?" THAT'D BE GREAT!! UGH.

I love this so much this one is the best ever

Rob Zombie should come back for the 3rd one. i enjored the john carpenters halloween way more than i did this one but i have to admit zombie's remakes were worth my time. heck imma gonna go see the re-release on the halloween weekend. Rob needs to finish what he started.

3-D I had no Idea that was coming. Halloween 2007 was
the big time master piece. I haven't seen Halloween II.
But really 3D. Rob Zombie's joking right. Halloween 3D.
Not really a good idea. If he's gonna do it in 3D please
pull some super movie special effects. And make it good.
Not some junk that people put out there just to make
money or to make a joke out of the origanl version.
Rob Zombie if you do Halloween 3D make just the 2D version
in theaters. If it's good enough then send 3D into place in

theaters. It's not a totally bad idea. 3D is good if
it's done right. But Rob Zombie make it awesome and
better than the last one. I heard H2 was the worst one
ever. So Make Halloween 3/3D a lot better than Halloween II.
I like to see good scary and gory movies that are done right. So do it right and make the Rob Zombie and horror
fans proud.

Good to hear Rob Zombie is gone. His Halloweens were AWFUL! Much much worse than his other movies (which weren't that good either). I hope the Weinsteins hire real horror director and not some music video hack who can make pretty pictures but can't tell a story to save his life.

I think that the remakes that ROB ZOMBIE has done were fucking great. I now think they are taking it to far with some of the greatest horror movies I grew up with. Some of the zombie(day of the dead,night of the living dead,and etc.) movie remkes were good but then some were not, some franchises like critters,texas chainsaw massacre,night of the living dead,and so on too many to name. They made way to many bullshit movies that were annoying like dawn of the dead with the dog not getting killed but in the return of the living dead there is a part where the zombies are tearing up a pet store. Don't get me wrong the movie wasn't half bad but it' really was off point from night of the living dead. So my opinion would be let it go down as a ROB ZOMBIE hit and not another flop like the new nightmare on elm street oh by the way ROBERT ENGLUND cannot be replaced no matter how hard you try nice makup job in this movie to don't like the costume. So thanks wes craven for ruining my childhood memories of freddy I had nightmares forever and now I giggle at the scaryness of this one.

If I remember correctly Halloween 3 was the season of the witch. Season of the witch/Halloween 3 is worst Halloween on the series. I think Rob Zombie is doing the right thing...season of the witch sucked.

i think that rob zombie should direct halloween 3d cuz i think he made both halloweens 1 and 2 soooo sooo good and i loved them. i am 16 years old and i am looking to become an actress and if i had the chance to work for rob zombie i would be absolutly thrilled and honored to work with such a great mind. he made the mobies actually scary and i enjoyed that very much!! :]]] thankyou

I own and have seen every Halloween film that was ever created. The original series (Halloween to Halloween: Resurrection) was awesome! When Rob Zombie came and "remade the series" he did it in HIS own way. That is what most of the haters don't understand. He wanted to make the Halloween movies in his own image. Most of the haters out there watched his movies and were saying how they would've done this or that. Then you create it in your own image. Personally, I thought Halloween 2007 and Halloween 2 were awesome. I would like to see someone do a Halloween 3-D but make it scary and horrifying.

i think we should get john carpenter back to do this film.

They should loose the Halloween 3d name in just make a sequel to Halloween:ressurection in 3d with a different director in leave rob zombie with those first 2 remakes.

I just saw the remake of Halloween II and I gotta say it was garbage. No one cares about the bs with MM stripper mother and everything things else in the movie. Her ruined something that was already great. Hopefully this new Halloween movie doesn't bomb like his sequel and hopefully it doesn't turn out to be a stupid movie like that Jason in space. Please please don't ruin the Halloween franchise the originals are amazaing for their time period John Carpenter did an amazing job the new school director should be ashamed of making crappy remakes.

Who ever makes this movie needs to have their facts together

there should have never have been a dam remake in the first place..zombie should of continued the series were it left of from halloween reserection..halloween2 is dumb.that aint michael myers if u ask me.

the halloween 2 movie sucked i dont know why . i usally love halloween maybe, i dont know, i think the new director might improve it if not f***

HOLLOWEEN'S MICHEAL MYERS for me personaly, stands out as the best slasher movie concept and character ever on screen. What Rob Zoimbie dipicted in the 2 remakes were outstanding, no horro idea has ever came close. Evil has a destiny. is real real life belive it or not. Some poeople are just born screwd up, and micheal was, is rage was triggered more due to bullies at school, a slutty sister, an ex stripper mom, and a abusive step dad. lets also keep in mined he wasnt always pure evil, he did keep his baby sister alive and cared for her... which in the end became the tippin point,when he was locked up unable to care for her. he killed instantly after a lady saw a picture of him and baby angel myers and said she was cute and couldnt have been related to him. for that he slit her throat with a fork. part 2 of the remake was just as good. Rob Zombie still used elements of the original 2 movies, execpt part 2 is 2yrs after the hospital., Where lourie still has nightmares about everything, and becommes telepahticky linked to her brother somewhat and hounted by the mother.. over all the movie makes people cry especially watching them back to back, and understanding the character of annie.. Anni's death is the sadest death in the holloween franchise..
Micheal Myers is the realest seriel killer.
you can only prey a child somewhere in the world will never grow in such a way as to creat a " micheal myers"..thats the deeper messege.

WITHOUT ROB ZOMBIE to write and direct his master pieace i bet all the moeny in the world it will destroy what rob zombis has done for the new genaration.. 3d is a poor excuse to make another one.
