At last report, actress Scout Taylor-Compton was preparing for “Halloween 3D,” a sequel to Rob Zombie’s two rebooted “Halloween” films which The Weinstein Company was planning to produce.
That plan appears to have changed. Schmoes Know reports that the distributor is moving in a new direction and is scrapping the original script by Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer.
Producers Bob Weinstein and Malek Akkad are instead putting together “Halloween: The Next Chapter”. The plan is to continue in the same continuity as the two Rob Zombie films, but move forward with a different character much like the way “Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers” shifted the focus to Laurie Strode’s daughter.
Whether Taylor-Compton will return as Laurie Strode, and who will be writing and directing this new chapter in the horror series is unknown. What is known is that it’s a while off, the script isn’t even due in until late next year so the movie itself won’t be out for some time.
