Back on September 5th I warned Halloween fans not to get their hopes up at the prospect of seeing Halloween 3D in the near future no matter what the Weinsteins’ promised. My suspicions were confirmed tonight when TWC pulled the plug on pre-production for the next entry in the revamped series. The studio was rushing the project into production, looking for the film to be finished by January for a summer 2010 release.
Several rumors are circulating as to why H3D met a sudden demise; the company doesn’t have the financial resources to make the film, director Patrick Lussier had a falling out with the Weinsteins over the price-tag of the final budget, and the new script is so bad it was better to shutdown production rather than carry on. The “official” Hollywood story is Patrick Lussier has other projects in the works and the Weinsteins are just waiting for him to get a little more free time so he can film H3D at a later date.
