The Los Angeles Times has revealed that The Weinstein Company is preparing for Halloween 3D, a sequel to the Rob Zombie movies which will be released in the summer of 2010.

However, Co-Chairman Bob Weinstein said Rob Zombie won't return for Halloween 3-D and the studio is in negotiations with a new director, whom he declined to name, who has experience in horror and has a "different take" on the franchise.
