Hot on the heels of the news that Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes is developing a controversial rebooting of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series comes word that the company is taking control of yet another iconic slasher horror franchise. That’s right, the next Halloween movie looks to be released under the company’s supervision.
For those who haven’t been keeping track: Platinum Dunes was also responsible for the remakes/reboots of Friday the 13th, Nightmare on Elm Street, Amityville Horror, Texas Chainsaw Masscre, and The Hitcher – all of which have premiered in theaters over the past ten years to decent financial returns ( and generally weak critical reception).
At this point, I honestly don't care what becomes of this franchise. Rob Zombie already railroaded it with his ridiculous reboot and its sequel. Alright, I actually did enjoy watching the sequel because it was interesting to see how dumb Zombie thinks his audience is. Nevertheless, does anyone care about this anymore?
