When the Weinstein Co. announced Halloween 3-D, they said they were negotiating with an experienced horror director, but didn't reference the director by name. According to Bloody-Disgusting, that unnamed director could likely be Steve Miner, the director of Halloween: H2O and Friday the 13th Part 2 and 3.
The Weinstein Co. promised a director for Halloween 3-D that would provide a "different take" on the series, which is not what Miner is famous for, but The Weinstein Co.'s "different take" could just mean "something other than what Rob Zombie did in Halloween II."
Until the Weinstein Co. or Dimension Films confirms the hiring, Miner is merely a rumor, but considering Miner's experience with slasher movies, including making them in 3-D, as he did with Friday the 13th Part 3, Miner certainly seems like a solid choice who could bring some stability to a growing, rebooted horror franchise.
