HALLOWEEN 2 Starts Production Early Next Year?!

The fiends from Dread Central were at this past weekend’s 30 YEARS OF TERROR convention (celebrating the entire HALLOWEEN franchise) and producer Malek Akkad let some details slip about the inevitable sequel to Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN, HALLOWEEN 2.

According to Dread, "the movie will be a direct sequel to Zombie’s re-imagining, but actual plot details couldn’t be revealed as of yet. Tyler Mane will be back as Michael, though, and other cast members are in talks to return, as well. They’re hoping to star pre-production in January and shooting to start up in March." While not officially confirmed, last we heard, filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury (who helmed French shocker INSIDE) were in negotiations to direct.

Also of note from the convention, DREAD said that during the HALLOWEEN 6 panel, screenwriter Dan Farrands (the director behind the upcoming FRIDAY THE 13TH documentary HIS NAME WAS JASON) revealed that "Anchor Bay is currently in talks with Buena Vista Home Entertainment" about releasing the much-bootlegged "producer’s cut" of HALLOWEEN 6: THE CURSE OF MICHAEL MYERS.
