'Halloween 3D' Dropped From 2012 Release

Dimension Films confirmed that it has removed “Halloween 3D” from the release calendar.

Dimension Films confirmed that it has removed Halloween 3D from the release calendar. According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, The Weinstein Company's genre division said the movie won't be ready in time for a scheduled October 26, 2012 release.

Paranormal 4, which opens October 19, is now the one horror film positioned to make a bid for fans of scary movies.

In 2007, Dimension rebooted the long-running Halloween franchise, which consisted of eight previous films. That version, simply titled Halloween, was released in the U.S. through MGM, and grossed $80.3 million worldwide. In 2009, the company followed up with Halloween II, which grossed $39.4 million worldwide.

For the latest incarnation of the series, Dimension has been working with writer/director Patrick Lussier and writer Todd Farmer, who collaborated on 2009's My Bloody Valentine and 2011's Drive Angry.
