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.
No further story details have been released. The film does not have a set start date at this time.
