Here's an interesting video movie pitch from Marvel Studios animatic supervisor Federico D’Alessandro. This is the video he presented to Michael Bay's Platinum Dunes production when they were looking for a director to take on the Halloween 3D reboot. It looks like it would have been a much better film than the ones that Rob Zombie made. I wasn't a big fan. This version looked like it had some promise though, unfortunately this is the most we'll ever see of it. Here's what D’Alessandro had to say to Bloody-Disgusting.
As a lifelong ‘Halloween’ fan it would be a dream to direct a reboot of the franchise that’s so near and dear to my heart. I created this animatic to show the tone and storytelling that I would bring to the project if I were lucky enough to have that chance. It turned out pretty cool, but unfortunately while I was in the middle of working on it, talks fell through between Platinum Dunes and the Weinsteins…so I missed the boat on that one.
It's not easy for talented people to land directing gigs these days. But an animated movie pitch like this can give those people a boost, and show off their vision for whatever film project they are trying to land. Watch the video, look at the concept art, and let us know if you'd be interested in seeing this vision of Halloween up on the big screen.
