Saw writers to pen the new Halloween movie

02.10.2015by: Ryan Miller

Halloween

The guys that made four of the seven SAW films (IV to VII) and PIRANHA 3DD have been given the tall task of bringing Michael Myers back to the big screen with the next installment in the HALLOWEEN franchise, reports THR. Those guys are Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan, who will pen the latest HALLOWEEN entry for Dimension Films. Other than that, however, details are pretty much nonexistent.

Malek Akkad, who has been working on the franchise since the mid-1990s and producing the movies since the 2007 reboot, is producing with Matt Stein. He is the son of Moustapha Akkad, the man who executive produced the original films.

It has taken this movie so long to get off the ground that they don’t even know what to call the damn thing. Is it a remake, a reboot or a re-imagining? Apparently, it’s none of those as the site says that one source is calling it a “recalibration”. That’s a new one...

Melton and Dunstan also have an adaptation of THE OUTER LIMITS in the works over at MGM and the two have also worked on GOD OF WAR for Universal. And now this, HALLOWEEN. It’ll be interesting to see what these guys come up and if they’ll choose to ignore Rob Zombie’s films. More as we get it!

I stopped at PIRANHA 3DD

I didn't mind the saw movies, the first 3 were the best though and they got worse as they went along...

PIRANHA 3DD though was horribly written and was just the worst non indie horror movie of the year.

Just please for the love of God don't be another copy of the first film. Give us a new story, we all know his origin, we all know the first film, we don't need to see it again.

The less Weinstein involvement the better. They ruined the series.

Oh great, they penned the worst of the Saw series AND the horrible Pirahna sequel. Let's hope they can go up from there and give us what we want in a Michael Myers story. Suspense and Halloween atmosphere; see Halloween 4 (the best Halloween sequel after Halloween II.

yeah re-calibration....

is about right.... what are they really gonna call this one? cant call it a reboot? (Jason's got similar problems) cant remake it... Rob already did that.... cant really call it a re-Imagining either... that was what Rob Zombie called his Halloween flicks, just listen... fans want a SEQUEL and they want it GOOD.
honestly Michael Myers face is covered by a mask, so nobody really cares if you recast... even Laurie Strode... but the Strode Family is central to this film... you cant shy away from

Very much enjoyed the two Colector movies. Hopefully they can retain that balance of fun, mainstream and violence those movies had.

As long as it's not Found Footage or Online videos like Halloween: Resurrection, I'll be okay with it.
