MYERS vs FREDDY RUMOURS
Some very reliable sources, and yet some unreliable sources have been teaming up to make Bloody Disgusting take the time to write this brain scrambling news post. But it seems that there are ALOT of possibilities in the air when it comes to Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Pinhead and Halloween 9. Read on for my rant.
'As totally expected, I've received a few emails regarding the news posted by the IMDB that Sean Cunningham will be directing Halloween 9. First I've received the following email from a source unknown to me, 'Hey, big time fan of BD, that's why I felt the need to let you know that the IMDb news on Sean Cunninham directing Halloween 9 is totally false. I can't tell you my name or how I know this because they're trying to keep it under wraps, but I'm in the know. The big wigs who own Halloween are trying to break a deal with New Line for a Michael Vs. Freddy film in light of Freddy Vs. Jason's success. The negotiations are going well. That's all I can say at the moment. Feel free to post this if you want and call me THORN. I'll let you know of any breaking news. Keep up the good work on BD, guys. Later!'
Well, this news struck me because Rox along with a few other people informed me that on City Pulse 24 (some TV show), they reported during a bulletin something along the lines of, 'Producer mulls over teaming Freddy and Jason with Halloween slasher Myers.'
This news is even more interesting considering Entertainment Weekly's report during the week of August 15th. Yeah you remember, the one which exposed that Joe Wolf, who owns the rights to Michael Myers met with New Line and was excited to try and get him involved in the future of the franchises.
Explaining EVEN more, that a specific someone I know, who asked for their name to not be used, knows more than whats been announced. Let's just say that as of right now Halloween 9 could be scrapped, or pushed way back. Basically there are a mirage of talks going on that determine a whole bunch of possibly futures. One future pits Pinhead against Michael Myers in Helloween. I can assure you that this news is in fact true and could happen. This is in front of Halloween 9, and yet behind the idea of New Line becoming involved. If New Line gets involved, then Freddy vs Myers would take bout over Pinhead vs Myers.
Whether or not Jason would be involved in the Myers battle is unknown to me at the moment. Also, Ash playing a part is still unknown. Robert said he'd love to battle Ash, but would NOT want to fight Leatherface. Bruce Campbell denies all Ash vs Freddy rumors (but he denies everything).
Some of this I know to be 100% true, but some of this can easily be false, but many reports seem to indicate that there is some serious truth to all of the rumors, it'll be interesting to see how things play out.'
