Michael Bay may produce the next HalloweeN

In March, we reported that Michael Myers would not be returning to the big screen in the next HalloweeN film this year, as the film was given a “To Be Determined” release date.

Bloody Disgusting
is reporting that Platinum Dunes is an emerging candidate to produce the next HalloweeN film, which was long been rumored to be in 3D. Platinum Dunes is a production company which was founded by Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form. They were responsible for producing several Horror remakes, including: Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), The Amityville Horror (2005), Friday the 13th (2009) and A Nightmare On Elm Street (2010). If Platinum Dunes produces the film, the 3D plans would likely be scrapped.

Michael Myers 19781 Michael Bay may produce the next HalloweeNMany rumors have stated the possiblity of the film being a ‘found footage’ type of film (The Blair Witch Project, Paranormal Activity). However, last September we posted an exclusive story where Malek Akkad himself (Trancas International Films) called in and stated that the next HalloweeN film would NOT be a found footage film.

What would you like to see? A complete remake, a sequel, a 3D or found footage film? Chime in with your comments!

  1. The found footage concept is sooo played out and stale. Resurection already used the poc footage idea anyway and we know how that turned out.

    I’m not sure if I’m liking the idea of another HalloweeN at all. There is no way in HELL the 1978 Halloween will ever be topped. Period.

    I’m just used to remakes embarassing/tarnashing the name and what not (Nightmare on Elm/Friday the 13th/Rob Zombie’s “interpretations” of HalloweeN), but sometimes they are fun to go and see if you take them as just that – a remake.

    If I had to pick, I would probably like a complete remake to see what creative talent might pop through and surprise me.

    I'm not sure if I like the idea of Platinum Dunes producing the next Halloween film. There takes on Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street fell a bit flat. Not to mention that there are no plans for a sequel to any of those movies right now. Is Platinum Dunes the place franchises go to "temporarily die"? However I feel that a reboot of the Halloween franchise is needed after RZ H2.

  4. For my tastes two scenarios would be fantastic.

    One would be a proper updated reboot of the series with 1978's HALLOWEEN being done in the same style as the original with a strong focus on suspense and good writing.

    The second scenario I would like to see is my favorite possibility. I would absolutely love to see the series be rebooted with HALLOWEEN III (with Michael being in the storyline) following the events of 1981's HALLOWEEN II. This is what everyone wanted originally and the series never truly got back on track. It would be the perfect way to go back and do it right and this time only have sequels if there is a good story to warrant them. No Thorn, no mute kids, no psychic connections, no Michael fighting rappers, no trailer trash backstories, no white horses, no b.s.

    Well stated my friend… 100% behind you on every statement therein…

  7. Mandy 'Hall' Wright says:

    Have to disagree. They should call it The Rock with Michael Myers if they are getting Bay to direct. No more sequels!

  8. zephro says:

    I’d like to see Trancas go out of business!

  9. Derek says:

    Benny – wow what a great idea… a real HalloweeN sequel, taking place after 1981′s HalloweeN II. I would absolutely be excited to see that one.

  10. Chris Farmer says:

    Oh god… Im iffy about michael bay. Tcm an f13 were good but noes stunk

    How about a continuation from RZ’s H2.

    Maybe start H3 by showing us the end of RZ’s H2, and then move forward several years later.

    Only this time H3 would go back to having the same feeling as the original Halloween?

  12. wowcomix says:

    I believe Nightmare on Elm Street and Friday the 13th as done by Platinum Dunes were pretty solid reboots; I’m all for them taking on the Halloween mantle and giving us a reboot that updates the storyline and yet remains true to what Halloween is — a story with more suspense and tension than gore. I would love to walk into a theater and see a film with Michael Myers where people are actually screaming, not laughing hysterically.

  13. In my opinion there is only one thing to do with this film that would make Myer fans come out of the woods to see it! It has to pick up after the first two original Halloweens. This would be Halloween III if they never did Halloween III without Myers. They would have to put their all into recreating Myers like the way he was in the original H1 & H2! With the Mask being like the way it was, to the height and movements of Michael, to the breathing and even the bronchiolar demonic grunt breathing he'd do when stalking. Down to even recreating a 70's film quality to help capture the eeeriness of the originals. Last, the music! Bring back all the music scores from the originals. Now if they can pull that off, which shouldn't be hard, that would hype the Myers world to its fullest!

    there is nothing like the original

  15. kiss78 says:

    I’m gonna have to go with the complete remake.
    Or the direct sequal to Halloween 2 1981 idea. (who would play Laurie?)

    I think that the 3-D should go away, forget about “thorn”
    Return to the elements that made the original great.
    Also the things that Joey Calamusa said.

    Someone should ask John Carpenter about the idea he had when he was approached about Halloween 4.

  16. Barron O'Shields says:

    Personally I'd like to see Tyler Mane return as Michael Myers, but what I'd like to see, is a sequel to 1981's Halloween II, with a more modern twist, combining elements of RZ's work with John Carpenter's. RZ's HI was great, and while I absolutely Loved RZ's H2, but the story was a little hard to follow, I'd like to see a Sequel to RZ's H1 with emphasis on Michael's Psychology, WHY he leaves such a trail of the Grim Reaper's work. as well as a lot of death surrounding him.

  17. I think Platinum Dunes will do a decent job with Halloween. They tend to play it safe with their remakes so I'm not expecting anything groundbreaking but it will be fun to see. I'm so glad it won't be 3D!

    I would totally ditch the Rob Zombie storyline and make a sequel to Halloween: Resurrection in the style of Halloween H20, calling it Halloween: Family Reunion. Just like the Scream movies with the stab series I would make the Rob Zombie movies the movie within a movie storyline for Halloween. I would love to see some characters return from the previous movies. Maybe the actors of ‘Halloween III’ to be stalked by Michael Myers when they are doing research on his character and history. And the returning characters from the original franchise to protect them or something. I donno. But the Rob Zombie movies are just getting ridiculous and ending the original franchise with Resurrection is just stupid. Halloween H20 was good, so in the style of H20, there should be a final movie for the original movies.

    I think that guy john on horror bid is writing an amazing 3rd part and he also rote his own version of rob zombies number two. He said he only took what he saw in the trailer and wrote it before he saw it. He’s been telling me about his third one which is a sequel to robs not his and it sound AMAZING. I think he posted it on here but if not its on horrorbid. I really like it and i could see it being a real movie. I would LOVE to see that on the big screen. It gives robs and the original justice.

  22. I would like to see a compleet remake using both the original version and the Rob Zombie version merged with a better home life situation, clean cut, for Michael Myers with pressures from school settung him off , and a whole lot less profanity.
