Friday The 13th Producers Seeking Halloween Franchise!
So the question for Halloween fans has been, who's going to make the next film? How about the producers of Friday The 13th 2009! Reported earlier today and elaborated upon by Shock Till You Drop, it seems Platinum Dunes is now in consideration to Produce the next Halloween film. It really is amazing to think that one production company could have a hand in the Texas Chainsaw, Friday The 13th, and Halloween film franchises, but it could be a reality. Michael Bay's production company with fellow producers Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are well known for rebooting or remaking Horror films and if they get the gig to make a new Halloween film, fans must expect another remake.
With PD already working on a Ninja Turtles reboot and possibly getting the next Halloween movie, it's safe to say that they will not be producing a new Friday The 13th film anytime in the future. As for the Halloween sequel, it has been reiterated that Platinum Dunes has not scored the right to produce a new Michael Myers film yet, only trying to form a select number of crew to pitch an idea to land the job. This is an interesting development and one worth keeping an eye on!
