A former well known man within the Halloween franchise, Steve Miner, may return to direct Halloween 3D – or so the first rumor about the third installment in the freshly rebooted horror series says. Apparently Bloody Disgusting received an e-mail from an actor claiming this, which is pretty much all there is to say about it. For now I’d categorize it as a pretty vague rumor.
However, it is an interesting rumor, which wouldn’t be too shabby if it was actually true. Miner has an okay track record having previously directed the somewhat decent Halloween H20 back in 1998. But H20 aside, he has also previously directed both Friday the 13th Part 2 and Part III. So even though he has gone downhill since then, he is still the man who made the movies that both created the Jason we know and love, and also gave him his classic hockey mask, so his involvement would be much welcomed.
But then again, I doubt there is any truth in this since Miner is mostly directing episodes of various TV shows these days, having recently directed one of this season’s Eureka episodes. In terms of horror, however, he did make the 2008 straight-to-DVD remake of George A. Romero’s Day of the Dead which I’ve heard was horrible, so I’m still a bit iffy on the whole subject matter. What do you think… would this be a good thing for the Halloween franchise?
