An official sequel to Rob Zombie’s 2009 Halloween II, director Quentin Yanez has launched a crowd-funding campaign to raise money for his fan film production of Halloween III: Family Ties, and the first official trailer for the project was released online today in celebration of #MichaelMyersMonday.
Billed as “the final installment to the Rob Zombie Halloween franchise,” Family Ties is a non-profit fan film project made “by fans, for fans.”
From the official synopsis: Taking place fifteen years after the events of Zombie’s Halloween II, Michael Myers is back, and with both Dr. Loomis and Laurie Strode gone, “Michael is now an unstoppable force of evil. He will rise now, to finally end his bloodline and leave nobody left behind. The small town of Haddonfield will always be the home of evil, and where Michael’s last family ties are revealed.”
Currently in pre-production, the final script is complete and casting is now underway, but we have some early promo art that teases how Michael will likely appear in the film, which you can view below.
According to Yanez, “Right now Michael’s main look is a combination of both the remake and the original. We want Michael to feel iconic for both sides of the films’ history. We have gone to great lengths to get the same model coveralls as used in the previous film. Our amazing dyer and ager has made them look almost perfect, making them match the screen used pairs.
If the crowd funding goal is met, the plan is to begin shooting in early July, but the cast and crew are dedicated to get the project completed even if they don’t meet their financial goal.
