A couple months ago I mentioned that Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (the team behind the brilliant INSIDE) may have been in talks with Bob Weinstein and Dimension about continuing what Mr. Zombie had started. Now, thanks to an article in Rue Morgue Magazine, we have further confirmation that this is indeed the case! Here’s a brief snippet of what was said:

"it's a proposition we couldn't refuse,” Maury explained and added that he and Bustillo are well aware of Zombie's re-imagining of Michael Myers and they're out to put their stamp on the character, not copy what came before them. "Therefore, our vision will be done with utmost respect, with a continuity of [Zombie's] work but also a real evolution of the world he set in place."

Evolution of the world? What's that supposed to mean? I liked Zombies film, but don't really see a sequel in it, kinda like the Carpenter one. Posted Image

Why????

Zombie's film would be okay as a stand alone slasher film. As remake for Halloween it falls mightily short. I just recently saw Carpenter's Halloween again uncut for the first time in years. After I felt like taking my DVD of Zombie's version and drop kicking into the Ocean(I live two blocks from the Ocean north of Boston).

I have no use for his film as a remake and see no reason why another should be made.

you guys do know that you can still see the original one right? And that you don;t have to watch the Zombie-verse ones...

And really, is the Zombie one actually worse then some of those shit-tastic sequels like the 3rd one, or the Druid cult story line? I think not. Zombie made a horror film with teeth instead of remaking a great suspense film, I liked it. I'll check this one out too.

Now that you mention it, IMO, it came pretty darn close to those. Posted Image

It's funny, I rewatched Halloween: 25 Years of Terror at work the other day and during one of the Q&A sessions with the cast of the original someone asked how they felt about a remake and if they would participate in it (this was when the remake was still a germ of an idea being toyed with), Charles Cyphers answered "Why remake a masterpiece?" which got a rousing round of applause.

I concur with that sentiment.

To each his own, though.

And I've said it before but the remake looks like Citizen Kane compared to Halloweens 5 to 8 (and I'm not even that big of a fan of the remake).

Having just watched this yesterday (the unrated cut), I don't see how they can have a sequel to this film.

If I remember correctly, Zombie said that he wanted to make sure that Michael was definitively dead at the end of his movie so it was the end of the story and there couldn't be a sequel.

I guess in the sequel, he'll just feel better after getting shot in the face and get back to killing people.

Michael was also decapitated at the end of H20 but that hardly stopped them from making another one lol.

Maybe he'll get it right this time and please more fans. I firmly believe Zombie can work well with this material. His remake was problematic but had the look of lost potential.

i loved the first one he did. I've liked everything Zombie has done. While I would of preferred a new film, as opposed to a sequel, I'll take this one. I wonder if he'll have it continue right from the end of part one like the original series?

I'll hope for the best and that Zombie learned from (what I perceive as) the mistakes he made and build on what did work in the first one.

Whoa. Halloween 3 is a terrific movie. It just needs to have the Halloween name removed. It's a great little 80's B movie. Tom Atkins is great in it.

Don't listen to the crazy MM fans. I think it would have been great to see Halloween evolve into a series of stand alone "Halloween" themed films like Carpenter had planned with this one. It's just that the fans didn't get it.Too bad. It's way better than ANY of the sequels.

As one of those "crazy" MM fans i'll say that we'll just have to agree to disagree there. I'll take Halloween 4 over Halloween III any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I assure you guys that i'm not schitzo but i'm now liking the idea of Zombie having a change of heart and returning to do the sequel, the first one went up and down for me, I liked it when I saw it in theaters, then for a while I didn't like it as evidenced by my posts above and then having just rewatched it again before Halloween I like it again lol.

Zombie's Halloween is one of the worst films I've ever seen.

The workprint, theatrical and unrated ... each version was worse than the last and I've never seen a movie fail so miserably at everything it tried to do.

Terrible writing, a total lack of suspense, gimmicky casting ... it didn't stop.

And I'll be the first one to say that I will take Halloween 5, 6 and H20 any day over Zombie's movie. Especially 5. For my money that gets such a bum rap, but I think it's a terrific sequel. And it's got atmosphere and suspense ... something that Zombie's movie couldn't get right.

Needless to say, I'll pass on a Zombie-helmed sequel until I can see it for free. His limitations as a filmmaker have never been more evident than on his ill-fated trip to Haddonfield.
Universal, please release Streets of Fire on Blu-ray.

Catch up with me again next month and i'll probably think your right lol. Posted Image

I agree about Halloween 5, except for those two bumbling idiot cops and the fact that Michael refuses to tuck his neck into his mechanics outfit, that drives me crazy everytime I watch it.

Yeah, I'm a fan of Halloween III and I'd say the same thing and I'd include Halloween II as well.

And it ain't a great movie but I think Zombie's Halloween is Citizen Kane compared to Halloween 5, 6, H20 and Resurrection. Posted Image
