Halloween Sequel In The Works

Rob Zombie’s heavily panned 2007 remake of “Halloween” last year is getting a sequel.

Producer Malek Akkad was on hand in Pasadena over the weekend for the “Halloween: 30 Years of Terror” convention and he confirms to Dread Central that a theatrical release is planned for a follow-up.

Tyler Mane is encoring as Michael Myers with pre-production expected to begin this January. Shooting is scheduled to commence sometime in March.

Akkad is still in negotiations with a potential director, and would not confirm that Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury (“Inside”) were a lock for the job as some online outlets have reported.
