Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2 brought in $17.4 million its opening weekend, good enough for a third place finish and, in Weinstein’s eyes, another chapter in the series.
According to the LA Times, Bob Weinstein is taking a cue from the 3D success of The Final Destination and will use the technology for the appropriately titled Halloween 3D. The film is expected to bow a year from now in summer 2010.
Rob Zombie will not be returning for a third go around with the franchise. A new director is currently being courted, one with a “different take” on the franchise and horror experience already under their belt.
