Update: Halloween 3D gets a director

The third horror has a confirmed director.

halloweenThere’s good news for Halloween fans as the third instalment in the rebooted saga – titled Halloween 3D – has landed itself a director. As reported by Fangoria earlier this month, the man set to take the reins from Rob Zombie (who will be now focusing his attentions on remaking The Blob) is Patrick Lussier.

Confirmed by Bloody Disgusting, Lussier will be working with My Bloody Valentine 3D and, er, Messengers 2: The Scarecrow screenwriter Todd Farmer.

Previously, Lussier has earned his stripes at Dimension Films cutting together the Scream trilogy, directing Dracula 2000 plus its sequels and most recently My Bloody Valentine 3D. The aforementioned foray into three-dimensional filmmaking signals that Lussier is certainly the right fit to helm this new Michael Myers adventure.

At this time Halloween 3D is scheduled to start filming this autumn.
