With the Weinstein Company skating on financial ice, even with Inglourious Basterds breaking $100m domestic, the Brothers Weinstein are once again placing their bets on horror. As they should: their success has long been tied to the genre in addition to Oscar pics. Now that Rob Zombie is finished retooling the Halloween franchise—his sequel dropped by 70+ percent this weekend—Dimension and Bob Weinstein have announced a new writer/director for the next unrelated installment: Halloween 3D. Fangoria parlays that they’ve tapped Patrick Lussier to helm the first 3D outing of Michael Myers, due to start production for a quick 2010 release.

Lussier is riding off of the tidy hit that was My Bloody Valentine 3D, and he’s been a go-to editor for the Weinsteins’ horror pictures dating back to Scream in ’96. Expect a more accessible, give-’em-what-they-want slasher outing. Dimension has also announced a new theatrical remake of Stephen King‘s The Children of the Corn. Labor Day just got better for one guy! They’ve hired major screenwriter, Ehren Kruger, forever co-responsible for Transformers 2 (also: Scream 3), to re-haul the franchise. If, unlike us, you’re not yet muttering in a daze of muckkity muck like Col. Kurtz, more details after the jump.
