Of Spidermen And Halloweens

In the last few days,there’s been some news about both the planned resurrections of both the SPIDERMAN and HALLOWEEN series,for here are my thoughts about the insanity that’s surrounded around both of these franchises…

* After ditching Andrew Garfield from the Spiderman role that he played in the two flawed but interesting reboot films,the folks at Sony/Columbia also ditched their plans for both their solo Venom and Sinister Six films for yet another new re-start of the Spidey series without retelling the origin tale and keeping Peter Parker/Spidey as a teen,with three candidates up for the role of Spidey,who all look too pretty boy and too young to play Spidey but anything to keep the Spidey films going. And Sony is having a hard time to decide upon whether to have the new Spidey as either a new solo adventure or have Spidey join up with Captain America in the currently filming CAPTAIN AMERICA:CIVIL WAR,have him join The Avengers team,have him by Thor’s side,or have him by Iron Man’s side.  Sony,just make up your fucking minds already and quit toying with the fans(and fanboys and fangirls) about who to play Spidey and what new direction to take him in,before all of the fans lose major interest in Spiderman.

* HALLOWEEN RETURNS is the new title of the planned 11th. HALLOWEEN film,with both Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton behind the scripting and directing lens of this one with a brand new story that not’s related to Rob Zombie’s previous two films,meaning Bye-Bye to both Scout Taylor Compton and Malcolm McDowell.  Producers Bob and Harvey Weinstein and Malek Akkad have taken(and retooled) the storyline of the abandoned HALLOWEEN:ASYLUM(which was to have starred Donald Sutherland as the asylum director/chief,but it got cancelled[along with many other planned HALLOWEEN sequel storylines] to make room for Rob Zombie’s two HALLOWEEN films) ,which has Michael Myers alive and about to be executed in the electric chair,but with teen characters for Michael to play off against(after he escapes from the execution room). It may sound like more of the same,but I surely hope that this sequel does actually get filmed and released and not cancelled and axed like the planned Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer scripted HALLOWEEN 3[H3]/3-D  was,since it’s been six years that we saw Michael on the big theatrical screen and it feel like both Akkad and the Weinstein Brothers want to break the track record that the long wait between HALLOWEENS Parts 5 and 6 had,since they are notorious for their shady tactics(which is the less said,the better). Otherwise,this HALLOWEEN film will take place in another separate universe where the deputy of the original HALLOWEEN 2 is now the sheriff and his daughter,the grown child of one of Michael’s past victims,and her friends have to deal with the escaped Michael,meaning no Man In Black,Silver Shamrock/Coral Cochran,or the pagan cult(from Part 6) in this installment.  All I just ask is for it to be a good film,and nothing else.

That’s it for now…
