We told you about the FX reshoots being undertaken to get RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP ready for release. During Fangoís visit to the shoot, RETURN producer Thomas van Dell revealed that he and original SLEEPAWAY/RETURN writer/director Robert Hiltzik are already planning another chapter in the summer-slaughter series. ďThe next one is called SLEEPAWAY CAMP REUNION,Ē van Dell tells Fango, ďand itís the last one in our trilogy,Ē which ignores the late í80sí SLEEPAWAY CAMP II and III. ďItís bascially about what happens when evil reunites, and thatís all Iím saying about the storyline. The third one will by far surpass the first film as far as how sick it is.
ďI donít know if Robert is going to direct, but he has already started on the writing,Ē van Dell continues. ďHe has the bulk of the beginning and end done, and weíre gonna piece the middle of it together. I donít think heíll have the time to direct; weíre actually looking for another director now. But weíre going to go back and retain the same people [Gerner and Spears] who are doing the effects on this one, and keep a nice small team again on it. Thatís really the most important and crucial part of something like this, where you can either gain the picture or lose it, so weíre going to stick with people we know and trust and who have delivered for us so quickly, and just keep going that way. Their work looks fantastic.Ē Look for full coverage of RETURN TO SLEEPAWAY CAMP in a future issue of Fango.
