‘My Bloody Valentine’ Director In Talks For 'Halloween 3-D'

Last week it was announced that a third film in the reboot "Halloween" franchise will come out next summer in 3-D.

Variety reports "My Bloody Valentine 3-D" director Patrick Lussier will be writing and directing a "Halloween 3-D" instead of Rob Zombie.

Lussier probably isn't a terrible choice because almost all of his experience (both as a director and more extensively as an editor) has been in the horror genre. As an editor I'm sure he picked up a trick or two while working with Wes Craven on the "Scream" trilogy or with Guillermo Del Toro on "Mimic."

"Halloween 3-D" is the eleventh film in the horror franchise, which dates back to 1978 with the original Halloween under director John Carpenter. The franchise has centered around the fictional (and doggedly murderous) character of Michael Myers, who goes on rampage after rampage - after rampage after rampage - on Halloween night. The franchise has grossed more than $300M worldwide.

More news to come! Catch ya' later!
