Well, it's official. After a year of bitching and moaning about how hard and horrible it was to direct the re-make of Halloween and vowing not to come back to do a sequel, the Weinsteins have green-lit "Halloween Dos" helmed by non-other than, Rob the fraggin' Zombie.

It will have characters from the original, Dr. Loomis and Laurie Strode, but will not take place at the hospital like the original sequel. It will, however, continue exactly where the re-make left off, which makes me very happy. What makes me a little nervouse is that they start filming in March and already plan on releasing the movie in October of 2009. As far as I knew, a script was yet to be written. Uh-Oh.
