It took a lot of tries, but I finally nailed the source of this story down to Arrow in the Head, who gathered the information from the latest issue of Rue Morgue Magazine. It seems that Halloween II is, as long rumored, moving ahead without Rob Zombie's involvement. The big news here is that Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who were supposed to helm the often discussed Clive Barker Presents: Hellraiser remake, have confirmed themselves as the co-directors of this Dimension sequel.
In the magazine, Maury stated, "It's a proposition we couldn't refuse." They don't want to do a carbon copy of Zombie's Michael Myers. Instead, Maury says, "Our vision will be done with the utmost respect, with a continuity to Zombie's work. But also a real evolution of the world he set in place." There is no mention of where this sequel will take place. Hopefully, it will all unfold inside a hospital, just like the original.
There is no further information on when this sequel will be getting underway. We will keep you updated in the future.
