Here’s some surprising news, The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that long time writing partners and all around bad asses Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton are on board and writing the next chapter in the Michael Myers saga.
According to the article “it’s not a remake, not a reboot, and not a re-imagining. One source said the project is a “recalibration.”
As far as I’m concerned if they are going to continue making these than a “recalibration” is certainly in order given the direction things have gone of late. I love the work of Melton and Dunstan, from their debut with ‘Feast’ all they way through ‘The Collection’ it has been a non stop roller coaster ride of madness and mayhem and if anyone is going to recalibrate things and maybe give the ‘Halloween’ franchise a fighting chance, these two might just be the ones to do it.
Much too early in the game to even begin wondering where they might go with things but I can tell you this, these are two of the most imaginative, out of their minds writers working in the genre right now and I’m more than curious to see what they come up with.
