Hmmm... interesting, says I.
Though I really like those two movies, you had me at "Halloween."
Some further internet digging found the Reporter article HERE that says:
"...the comedic script, which centers on a sarcastic teenage girl who is forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating on Halloween, then loses him and must find him before their mother finds out."Hmmm... says I, again.
Can't help but think that sounds a little like the video game Costume Quest. But really, there could be a million stories centered around a son/daughter who loses a sibling on Halloween and has to get them back ---and I'd go see each one. (Maybe not at full price, I mean... like... that'd be like a bill-million dollars.)
Paramount decided they want to make a go for opening it THIS coming Halloween season so let's hope they don't have any delays and have to open a Halloween movie in March... or worse... pull a Trick 'r Treat and shelve it for a couple years only to release it on DVD.
Of course IMDB is saying the release date is 2014 so I'm not going to hold my breath.
I'm being pessimistic aren't I?
Look I just get very attached to movies about my beloved holiday.
I'll be sure to keep tabs on this one and continue to eat "Fun Size" snacks in support of the film. It's the least I can do.
