Halloween – Resurrected Again…

michael_myersPatrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, the writers behind some of the installments of the hit Saw movies, have been tapped to pen the latest entry of the Halloween horror franchise for Dimension Films.

Malek Akkad, who has been associated with the franchise since the mid-1990s and producing the movies since the 2007 reboot, is producing with Matt Stein. He is the son of Moustapha Akkad, the man who executive produced the original batch of movies.

Rob Zombie directed the reboot and its 2009 follow-up, but no director is attached to the new installment, which has been in development for several years now. Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine) and Todd Famer were at one point working on a Halloween 3D, but since they departed years ago, it’s been quieter than a night in Haddonfield, Illinois.

In fact, it’s been so long since the last movie, it is unclear what to call the latest project that will tell the bloody tales of Michael Myers, the seemingly unstoppable killer who stalks the Halloween holiday.

Sources say it’s not a remake, not a reboot, and not a reimagining. One source said the project is a “recalibration.”

Whatever it is, Melton and Dunstan should be suited to the task. The pair wrote four of the seven Saw movies (numbers IV tVII), Piranha 3DD as well as an adaptation of The Outer Limits, which is in development at MGM. They also worked on God of War for Universal and most recently wrote Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark, which they sold as a pitch to CBS Films.

Fisher Price Slasher Toys

008-LEATHERFACE-FISHER-PRICE_ADVENTURE_PEOPLE009-LEATHERFACE_VICTIM-FISHER-PRICE_ADVENTURE_PEOPLEIt’s a BLAST FROM THE PAST with the Fisher-Price adventure people. Made by Phil Postma: “Some of you might remember these from your childhood but probably don’t remember them being so bloody gory. That is my fault, this mash-up just popped into my brain one afternoon and I just had to make them. It is a literally my youth mashed together with toys I have played with as a kid and my love of the horror movies from teen years.”

“I also chopped up some Backgrounds from “Scoody-doo: Mystery Incorporated” and put them in the illustration to make my drawings look better since My BG skills are lacking. And before anybody asks, they are done entirely in Photoshop and are not real custom figures.”

Halloween Pitch by Federico D’Alessandro

Posted last week on Bloody Disgusting and FearNET, this is an animatic pitch by story artist Federico D’Alessandro (Thor, Captain America, Avengers, Iron Man 3 and Thor 2).

“As a lifelong HALLOWEEN fan it would be a dream to direct a reboot of the franchise that’s so near and dear to my heart. I created this animatic to show the tone and storytelling that I would bring to the project if I were lucky enough to have that chance. If you like it, please repost…if this gets enough hits, who knows, maybe I’ll get that opportunity!”

Then check out his short film, Recollection, which won which won Best Horror Short at the 2011 Comic Con. The multi-award winning short horror film, is the story of a man who awakens in a freshly dug grave with no memories of who he is or how he got there. Lost, injured and afraid, he finds himself in a fight for survival as he struggles through a macabre lair while desperately trying to escape from a man intent on killing him.
