HalloweeN 3D Postponed Officially Bumped from 2012

'Tis true, boys and girls. If you thought Dimension Films was really going to have Halloween 3D in theaters October 26th, 2012 as the company stated last year, then you have another thing coming. Michael Myers will NOT be returning to the big screen this Halloween season.

Given that we had yet to hear anything about casting or a shooting schedule, I suppose it shouldn't come as much of a surprise that Halloween 3D, the third film in the rebooted slasher franchise (and the first not to involve director Rob Zombie), has been officially postponed. More worrying news is that Halloween 3D has now adopted the dreaded release date “To Be Determined.”

This is getting to be a habit for Dimension Films, which earlier this year pushed Scary Movie 5 from this spring all the way to January 2013. Also, a full year ago, the studio dropped Piranha 3DD from its 2011 schedule and has yet to announce a new date. Postponing a 3D movie is not a shock, the filmmakers often need more time to finalize the three-dimensional effects... but the fact that the Dimension didn't specify a new release schedule makes me worry that Halloween 3D could be put on the shelf as long as Piranha 3DD, if not longer.

Dimension's Bob Weinstein was working with Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer to bring Halloween 3D to fruition. The duo behind Drive Angry 3D penned a script, but it was ultimately put on the back burner. Insiders tell us Halloween 3D is a priority and still very high on the Dimension priority list. They are still fielding pitches, as no script has been deemed good enough. Hopefully this means that they are going to put a lot of effort into the project, rather than releasing a sub-par film. Maybe this will turn out to be good news in the long run?

Worst thing is that those 3D movies usually suck anyway, no matter how much they work on it. :lol:

I don't remember seeing any good 3D movie in a really long time... and I mean, REALLY long time. Last one was AVATAR. Movie is really bad (goddamn Pocahontas!)but 3D was terrific. I still hate the movie tho, because I paid huge money to see Pocahontas in 3D!

ps. They should just drop the Halloween series for another 15 years. All "big three" would work lot better if they were just sequels (F13, Elm S, Halloween)

even TCM remake was more like sequel then remake.

There is no guarantee that taking longer to make a movie will deliver a better quality product. All it means is that they have no idea what to do at this point.
It's a trap!

Exactly, they've had 3 years to come up with a good script and still they have nothing.

Maybe they should put the Myers mask onto a dead horse and then beat it!

i think the one thing to is who ever they get to direct the next one will play big on how people feel about it as well, if they get a director that most people like then there a chance people will want to see what they do with it.

Yup, that's part of the problem. RZ left the series in such a mess it's very hard to figure out how to continue on with the next movie.

RZ probably did that on purpose. Fuck everything up, so there's no way to make another seven sequels. :badgrin:

admit it, you know it's true! :badgrin:

Yes, but Dante is still in indi production, and Hollywood producers want big names.

I just hope future director would not be Alexa Aje, guy who never made original flick. :lol2:

Wait, they said the third movie in the rebooted franchise. So, they are continuing from the RZ movies? I thought they were starting fresh again.

Halloween 3:3D would be what Halloween 3 was to original series. So yes, we can expect Michael HippiBum to return for yet another slaughter in Rob Zombie's Halloween 4. :badgrin:

He won't do it. His career as horror director pretty much ended after Drag me to Hell.
