A new instalment in the long-running Halloween franchise is reportedly on the cards, although it won’t be called Halloween: The Next Chapter as had previously been suggested.
Schmoes Know had reported earlier in the year that Dimension was planning to reboot the film using the aforementioned subtitle, with the supposed plan being to offer “a fresh new take on the Halloween legacy”.
However, the official Halloween Facebook page has since posted a message dismissing such a project, while confirming that a new film is indeed in the pipeline.
“We’ve been getting a lot of e-mails/tweets/Facebook messages lately about a project called Halloween: The Next Chapter,” reads the post. “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 instalment 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.” Looks like Michael is coming home once more…
