Aja could be an amazing choice.

Obviously this is the ultimate nod to RZ's failure. Announce after this film as quickly as possible that they are going away from Zombie and in a different direction.

Please Please Please let them choose a decent director this time around. I doubt the script will be good as it's going to be rushed. My pipe dream is them to wait until Brad Anderson is free and take time to write a solid script.

If they would want to cause a stir I say get Tommy Lee Wallace to direct and keep the script top secret and give no comments on when people would ask if Myers would be in the film. I bet that would drive a lot of folks crazy

A few thoughts

A new director at this time, is the cloestest, at least for now, that the studio will come to admitting to themselve that they and RZ really screwed the pooch.

Rushing for summer, if that's actually a rush, is they're aimming for a movie that's not halloween/Oct 31th dependent for marketing, it's a real all audience movie, real story, real project, not nitche fan base

And 3D, a little risky in a way, but also way to distance it from RZ.

As for story, I'd guess a few things

A total relaunch or a virtual relaunch, kinda like they did with the hulk, not "quite" ignoring the first movie, but sure putting it behind them. OR, basing the movie on later Halloweens in a way, so it's somewhat of a sequel to H1 & H2, but really being more of a direct sequel to JCs 1 & 2 without using the Jamie stories. Could even be Season of the Witch as a summer movie to regain some credibility before and restoring the fanbase before a relaunch.

Hopefully some attempt to redeem themselves in any case. I guess that's alll pretty wishful thinking, but seems possible.

Please, don't pick Marcus Nispel. If they do that then the franchise really has gained nothing.

But, remember Rob said he wouldn't do a 2nd installment and then they pulled the rug out from under us?

I actually think remaking Season of the Witch would be more fun than watching Myers run around slashing people up, especially factoring in the 3D. Oh well, as long as Zombie is not involved it's likely to at least be watchable.

I dunno if I'm confused but I remember that H2 @ 1st was gonna be directed by the guys who did INSIDE. I wish they would get involved this time. As long RZ isn't involved I'm happy. I hope they ignore everything and start fresh. Oh and if somehow Annie is still alive I would be happy too. I mean I don't remember them saying "She's D-E-A-D-".

Yeah but from what they are syaing they are going in a different direction which in Hollywood speak sounds like.."we aren't pleased with RZ's Halloween."

I don't think this time anyone is going to ask him.

I'm not sure how Hollywood or the movie bizz works but could it be possible to continue the series based on the previous franchise instead of the one that RZ began?

Aja would be sweet, I pretty much jizz all over everything he touches. Not sure what he would do with this but I'm sure he would be an improvement, and this is coming from someone who enjoyed the remake(haven't seen the 2nd)
