Obviously spurred by the trouncing they got from The Film Destination 3D this weekend, the Weinstein Company announced today that there will be a third film in the rebooted “Halloween” series. And this next entry will be in, you guessed it, 3D! The film will be titled … wait for it … Halloween 3D!
The film is already slated for release next summer, and Harvey Weinstein says Rob Zombie is out as director.
This news is neither especially exciting, nor is it unpredicted. But what is surprising is that the Halloween series has never had a 3D entry before. Back in the eighties when every horror franchise milked its box office potential with a 3D entry, Halloween eschewed this particular choice, and foisted the usual 2D horrors on us, again and again.
