He wants to bring it back to the classic feel...
Producer Malek Akkad recently spoke with Collider at the Saturn Awards about the planned Halloween 3. Check out the highlights:
On their plans for the film: "I can't talk about it too much right now, but it will definitely keep elements and bring in new elements. But I really want to bring it back to kind of like, the classic – because the last one got a little dark – I want to bring it back to the classic Friday night horror film that people will really like."
On working off a new take: "Todd Farmer and Patrick Lussier did a script. The next day after the last one came out, we were back in production for Halloween 3D. We were about two weeks from going down to Louisiana to shoot it and for whatever reason, the studio thought we were maybe moving a little bit too quickly. I disagree. I think we had a great script and a great team and it would have been a massive hit. But right now we're currently working on a new script for Halloween 3, so it's all in the works right now."
