The eleventh installment of everyone’s favorite slasher franchise returns with the unimaginative title: “Halloween Returns.”
Written by Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan penning the script—the team behind the various Saw films as well as the Collector, the Collection, and Feast. According to horror-hub, Bloody Disgusting, Marcus Dunstan is set to direct.
Plot details emerged through MovieHole, though there is no telling the accuracy, but they are as follows:
The now 18-year-old child of one of Myers’ victims plays a central role along with the child of a cop whose long been obsessed with Myers’ case, even putting it before his own daughter. Myers is now on death row and the two kids with their own personal vendettas against the killer sneak in to watch his execution. But when things go awry and Myers escapes, the pair, along with their friends, find themselves in the firing line.
Though no solid details as to which timeline the film is set (that of John Carpenters or Rob Zombies), the studio is not considering the film a remake or a re-boot, but rather a “recalibration”
Production is slated to begin this July.
