There was a lot of buzz recently that the next ‘Halloween’ film was pretty far into development and would be titled ‘Halloween: The Next Chapter.’ Apparently that isn’t true. While the name of the film was originally titled ‘Halloween 3D,’ the rumor had a new title in place and stated that the script was being finalized for 2015. Are we looking for a title change for when the film is released? Tough to say with what information we’ve now been given.
This above rumor, however, can be be put firmly into the rumor cabinet as it was quickly shot down on the franchise’s Facebook page. In the process of debunking the rumor, the page did give fans a bit of information in the process. Here’s the official response:
We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter. It seems that’s the latest buzz surrounding the next Halloween film and again it’s just not true. As we stated before, a new installment of Halloween is indeed in on track and moving forward and we are currently developing a script, to finally bring Michael back to the theaters!
More information will be released over the coming months and exclusively at Halloweenmovies.com. So make sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook, so you can know first!
So it sounds like everything above is “just not true” and while there is a script for the next film in the works, there isn’t a lot past that at this time. However, it does look as if there will be an official announcement coming in the near future! I can’t imagine they would be rebooting the series so quickly so I strongly suspect this will be a continuation of the Michael Myers that Rob Zombie had brought us. With how they ended the second movie I’m curious what direction they will go.
Do you think the current ‘Halloween’ needs a new installment? How do you think they would play the return of Michael Myers or do you suspect that they would go a different route all together? Share your thoughts below!
