EXCL: Inside Helmers Stalked by Michael Myers

Will they do Halloween 2?

Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury’s departure from Dimension Films’ new Hellraiser film was not a sour farewell after all.

An industry insider tells ShockTillYouDrop.com under strict anonymity the French duo behind this year’s artsy bloodbath Inside, are in discussions with Bob Weinstein at Dimension Films about another potential film to make their American debut.

Our source tells us Weinstein has offered them an opportunity to helm Halloween 2, the inevitable follow-up to Rob Zombie’s Halloween. And even though Bustillo and Maury recently said they were developing another new French thriller, Snow (details), these Halloween 2 rumblings corroborate whispers we’ve been hearing that the pair were close to committing to a U.S. picture.

Zombie has expressed publicly his disinterest in helming another Halloween. The writer-director’s reworking of Carpenter’s slasher milestone made $78 million worldwide.
