Halloween 3D scheduled for summer 2010

Further establishing a trend for 3-D genre pictures of a kind not seen since the 1950s, Weinstein Co. co-chairman Bob Weinstein has announced that the next movie in the rebooted Halloween franchise will be Halloween 3D, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Rob Zombie, the director of the recent Halloween and this past weekend's strong opener Halloween II, is currently developing a second remake of The Blob and will not be attached.

This next Halloween would be part of a growing number of upcoming major studio releases in 3-D, joining titles like James Cameron's Avatar, Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, Robert Zemeckis' animated A Christmas Carol and Pixar's Toy Story 3D.

No director for the upcoming sequel has been selected yet.
