Platinum Dunes, of course, gave us the remakes of A Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, The Amityville Horror and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Pulling Halloween into their stable seems like a logical choice.
As for the "direction" that the series might take, I'm hearing that pitches are being fielded for a straight-up continuation of what Rob Zombie created and another reboot is being considered.
How likely is it that Dimension will partner with Platinum Dunes? Time will tell. They already have an established relationship having worked together on Amityville.
