Promising short fan film Halloween: The Face of Michael Myers is beginning an Indiegogo funding campaign this July.

An upcoming short titled Halloween: The Face of Michael Myers is a new project from Hawthorne House Films and filmmaker Stephen Wolfe, the guy behind Friday the 13th fan film Never Hike Alone.

The talented people behind the project will launch an Indiegogo campaign on July 24th, and we have the first teaser trailer and poster artwork for you below.

What is the true nature of Michael Myers? Hawthorne House Films and filmmaker Stephen Wolfe bring a fresh take on the classic white-faced antagonist of the Halloween franchise in a brand-new fan film that will soon be seeking your help through an exciting crowd funding initiative.

Halloween: The Face of Michael Myers Teaser Trailer | Halloween Fan Film - YouTube

Synopsis:
“Forty years on from the initial violence that unsettled the suburban community of Haddonfield, IL, a new set of murders rattles the sleepy town. Dr. Benjamin Petersen (Matt Baca) is charged with the psychiatric evaluation of a young man who butchered his entire family. Billy (Tim Robinson) claims the specter of Michael Myers entered his body to satisfy its bloodlust. As the conversations between patient and doctor delve into the dark territory of Billy’s twisted psyche, Benjamin’s own sense of reality fractures, threatening to conjure the infamous spirit and plunge Haddonfield into another blood-soaked Halloween.”

About the project:

The short is helmed by up and comer Stephen Wolfe, whose first two horror features, Midnight Abyss and Doll Factory, are due out early next year, along with his forthcoming short horror/comedy Dracula’s Coffin. A lifelong love affair and study of horror cinema mark Wolfe as the perfect visionary filmmaker keen to interpret its undercurrents of social commentary while also delivering on the bloody goods. The script was written by new talents Tim Robinson and Mike McPherson, whose penchant for the shadowy corners of the human mind lends itself to this probing iteration of the infamous slasher villain.

The development is being overseen by Vincente DiSanti, writer/director of the popular Friday the 13th fan film Never Hike Alone, as well as Volumes of Blood creator P.J. Starks. Both are excited to lend their assistance and expertise to this production.

With cast and crew assembled, the project is seeking to fulfill a $13,000 fundraising goal on the Indiegogo platform. The campaign offers a variety of unique and inspired horror perks for donating fans including exclusive pins, posters, shirts, and more! The campaign begins July 24th and runs through August. Production is slated to begin late August/Early September with an October 2018 release.

To stay up to date with all the latest developments on the project, be sure to follow Hawthorne House Films on the following social media platforms:

Only Michael Myers has the balls to show up on Friday the 13th, that being Jason’s special day. Well, the folks at EW debuted a new photo from this year’s Halloween sequel late last night.

“What I loved is that it surgically excises all of that dead tissue,” Jamie Lee Curtis explained to the site. “This is growing from just that original movie, 40 years later. There may be people who love the other movies, great — [they have] zero relevance to this story.”

Green’s Halloween doesn’t entirely ignore the other sequels.

“This film isn’t one to narratively recognize any of the films other than the original Halloween,” says the director. “But we very much enjoy the other films and there’s a lot of very subtle shout-outs to a number of things that I think the big fans — the people that know the films scientifically — will get a kick out of, hopefully.”

In the film, we discover that masked killer Michael Myers is about to be transferred from a psychiatric institution to a maximum-security prison. Can we assume there is a hiccup en route?

“Well, s— hits the fan in one way or another,” teases Green.

The film also stars Nick Castle, who reprises his role as Michael Myers, stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney will also don the mask, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the daughter of Greer and the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, Virginia Ginny Gardner plays Vicky, Miles Robbins plays Dave, Dylan Arnold plays Cameron, and Drew Scheid plays Oscar.

John Carpenter executive produced the film with Malek Akkad for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum of Blumhouse. Gordon Green and Danny McBride also executive produced under their Rough House Pictures banner. Special FX specialist Christopher Nelson created the new Michael Myers mask.

Synopsis:

“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

Halloween hits theaters on October 19th, 2018.

In a recent chat with the site, Dougherty had a bit to say about the project that will further expand Legendary’s MonsterVerse:

“The world is reacting to Godzilla in the same way we would react to any other terrifying incident, in that we are overreacting… there’s paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we’re threatened by others like his kind.”

The film is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.

Oscar nominees Vera Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Conjuring films), and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), both reprising their Godzilla roles; Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea); Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (Get Out); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s “Silicon Valley”); Charles Dance (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton); Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) star.

After you’ve checked out both of the new images below, head on to EW to read the complete interview with Dougherty on Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

Deadline shared the exclusive news on Wednesday that MGM is developing a new installment of RoboCop and has set District 9 director Neill Blomkamp to helm the picture, which is titled RoboCop Returns. The studio hopes to revive a franchise that began with the Paul Verhoeven-directed satirical sci-fi action thriller that Orion released in 1987.

Original writers Ed Neumeier and Michael Miner are producing and exec producing, respectively. Justin Rhodes, who co-wrote the Terminator film that Tim Miller is shooting, will rewrite the script that Neumeier and Miner wrote years ago as a planned sequel to Verhoeven’s hit, an installment that never happened.

Official plot details:

“Anarchy reigns and the fate of Detroit hangs in the balance as RoboCop makes his triumphant return to fight crime and corruption.”

You can read everything that Blomkamp had to say about RoboCop Returns with the folks over at Deadline right here.

Not only that, Blomkamp took to his official Twitter account today to answer one fans question on whether or not the new film would be R-Rated.

There will be all these things
