Dimension Loses ‘Halloween’ Movie Rights

After 20 years, Dimension Films has reportedly lost the rights to the “Halloween” franchise, leaving Miramax to search for a new distributor.

Bloody Disgusting, which broke the news, reports that although development had begun on a new “Halloween” film to be directed by Marcus Dunstan from a script he wrote with his “Saw” collaborator Patrick Melton, it’s thought Miramax will now start from scratch. Malek Akkad remains as a producer.

Founded by Bob Weinstein, Dimension has been behind the “Halloween” franchise since the release of the sixth film, “Halloween: The Curse of Michael Meyers,” in 1995. It went on to produce “Halloween H20,” “Halloween: Resurrection,” the Rob Zombie remake “Halloween” and its sequel “Halloween II.”

TheWrap has confirmed the report with “an individual with knowledge of the situation.”
