Halloween II

Another installment in the Halloween horror movie franchise is still in the works, and it has acquired the talents of a pair of writers.

Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the duo who wrote the screenplays for Saw IV, Saw V, Saw VI, and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, have been hired to work on the movie, which will be set in the world ruled by the silent mask-wearing killer Michael Myers.

Rob Zombie directed a reboot of the franchise in 2007, as well as its 2009 sequel. Because it’s already been nearly six years since the last movie, what this next one will be exactly—a new sequel or another reboot or re-imagining—is not so clear. According to sources it’s being dubbed a “re-calibration,” whatever that might mean.

Other movies Melton and Dunstan have worked on include Feast (as well as its sequels Feast II: Sloppy Seconds and Feast III: The Happy Finish), The Collection and its sequel The Collector, both of which were also directed by Dunstan, and Piranha 3DDD.

The writing team also worked on the screenplay for the planned Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie, before Big Fish and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory writer John August was brought in to work on the adaptation.

As for who will take over for Zombie and direct the next Halloween entry, no one is attached at the moment. My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry director Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer were once working on what was going to be titled Halloween 3D, but that project never played out.

Where would you the faithful fans of the Halloween franchise like to see it go? Would you rather see a new sequel or yet another full reboot, or are you curious to see what this “re-calibration” will be? Perhaps you’d prefer that they not make a new movie at all for the time being?
