Filmmaker Rob Zombie has confirmed via his official MySpace page that a deluxe Blu-ray of his hit 'Halloween' remake is currently being planned for an October release.
As first revealed on www.myspace.com/halloweenmovie, Zombie surprised diehard Myers fans with a posting that has leaked early details of a three-disc Blu-ray edition of his $60 million-grossing 'Halloween' reboot.
Pegging an October 21 street date (timed to coincide with the release of a new special edition DVD version), the Blu-ray is set to include an all-new four-and-a-half-hour documentary on the making of the film entitled "Michael Lives."
Further specs are still TBA, but given the three-disc configuration, all of the extras included on the previous two-disc Unrated DVD version (released last year) appear likely.
At press time, the Weinstein Co. has neither confirmed nor denied plans for any 'Halloween' release on Blu-ray, but given Zombie's official thumbs up, the prognosis looks good. As always, we'll keep you updated as any official news comes in.
In the meantime, you'll find preliminary specs for 'Halloween (2007)' linked from our Blu-ray Release Schedule, where it's indexed under October 21.
