Despite Dimension Films announcing two weeks ago that Halloween 2 would be a Direct-to-DVD sequel, producer Malek Akkad said at this weekend's Halloween: 30 Years of Terror convention in Pasadena that any and all sequels would first have a theatrical release. According to Bloody Disgusting, the next installment will be a direct follow-up to Rob Zombie's 2007 Halloween remake.

Though it is not known if this next film will follow Michael Myers adventures in a hospital, as 1981's original Halloween II did, it was reported that Tyler Mane, the man behind the mask in Zombie's installment, would be returning as the omnipresent killer.
