Rob Zombie’s ‘Halloween’ franchise reboot received mixed reviews from die-hard Michael Myers fans.
Personally, I thoroughly enjoyed Zombie’s take on the Myers story. However, it’s hard to argue that ‘Halloween 2’ was a bit of a jumbled mess that more so confused fans rather than furthered the storyline. Unfortunately, ‘Halloween 3’ never happened, and the Zombie-led franchise reboot is now dead in the water.
Scout Taylor-Compton portrayed the iconic Laurie Strode character, and did an excellent job in the modernized ‘Halloween’ storyline. Speaking to Syfy Wire recently, Taylor-Compton explained why ‘Halloween 3’ never happened, and why, ultimately, it was probably a good thing that it never did:
“Rob was done after the second one,” Taylor-Compton said. “There was a lot of stuff that was going on, and I mean, I was too young to really understand what was going on. But I do know that we were contacted. Myself and Tyler [Mane] were contacted by Dimension to do a third.
“They had sent a copy of the script. They didn’t have a director, but they had a tentative tape date, and that was it
“When I heard that Rob wasn’t gonna be a part of it, I called Tyler and I talked to him. And he said that he had gotten the same offer. We were so hesitant
“I was indifferent with what I wanted to do; it seemed so unorganized and
“But I’m kinda glad that it didn’t happen, because the way that the offer came in, it was not from loving hands.”
