No Halloween In 2012
3D instalment's release date pulledLast summer, the announcement came across the interwebs from the Weinsteins' Dimension that Halloween 3D would be released on October 26, 2012. At the time, we mused that there didn't appear to be a film to go with that release date, and as time has gone us, nothing has appeared to disabuse of that notion.Proof, if proof were needed, that all is not well at the Halloween camp has now come through, with that release date being officially pulled. Halloween is cancelled this year, kids.The slasher franchise is currently in a state of some disarray, following the two Rob Zombie films that, shall we say, divided audiences.*There was a Halloween 3D underway to some extent in 2009, with a screenplay by the My Bloody Valentine / Drive Angry team of Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer, but that no longer seems to be the film that's in the works. Shock report that Dimension are "still fielding pitches" for the stabby further adventures of Michael Myers. Hey, maybe you should write in.*That's a euphemism for "most people didn't like them".
