I checked it out on the all-powerful imdb.com, and yes indeedy, they will be making another Halloween movie.
I personally think that the series should have ended with the untimely death of Moustapha Akkad (R.I.P.), but this film was planned on being made before he died. Since I am a huge fan of the original (and director John Carpenter), this comes as somewhat mixed news to me. Good in that it has been stated that the film will be a throwback to the classic, rather than a continuation of the series, but bad in the sense that Rob Zombie will be directing it. I suppose he has the chops, but looking back on his filmography, I'm afraid that it will be turned into a sensationalistic, silly gore-fest, rather than an honest-to-God attempt at recreating a slasher classic.
Guess we'll just have to see how it turns out. I will be keeping my fingers crossed.
Guess it will be a remake, since it's called just "Halloween" instead of "Halloween 9". Darn, suprisingly I wanted to see another add on movie, because Micheal Myers technically isen't dead. But, oh well, whatever we get will be good, just so long that's another Halloween film. Although, I hope this won't be the last one, because otherwise they'll be ending the series with Myers still alive. So, I propose they make this remake and one more final film to wrap up the long, beloved, series.
