'HALLOWEEN 3-D' HAS A DIRECTOR
Rumors flew last week that Steve Miner would be sitting in the director's chair for next summer's Halloween 3-D. Not so much, it turns out. Patrick Lussier has been confirmed as the writer/director who will be spraying CGI blood at audiences. This is a bad move but not an unexpected one. His last film, My Bloody Valentine made big money at the box office due to its 3-D presentation despite the fact that the storytelling was terrible in every way, shape, and form. You should also note that H3 doesn't have a script or cast in place and is expected on screens in less than a year. Might be wise to avoid this one and play outside instead. You know, where everything is in 3-D. (First Showing)
