Gerald J. Godbout III and Godbout Entertainment are proud to announce the completion of their latest production. A tribute film to Halloween called Legends 2: A Halloween Tale.
A sequel to Godboutâ€™s 2004 fan favorite film Legends: A Friday the 13th Tale, this time Godbout has teamed up with Producer Allan Marrero who was the lead actor in the original Legends film. Legends 2 was originally conceived as a short film but later expanded to feature length.
The film picks up 10-years after the events depicted in Dimension Filmsâ€™ Halloween H20. But there is a twist, Legends 2 conceives that the events in past Halloween films happened in reality and then Hollywood turned them into films. â€śTelling the story this way lets us keep the events of the films as canon but allows Legends 2 to have its own pathâ€ť said Writer/Director Gerald J Godbout III. â€śIt was a labor of love and craziness as we shot part of this film in North Carolinaâ€”driving 10 hours to a replica house from the first Halloween film that Kenny Caperton a fan and over all great guy had built.â€ť
Legends 2: A Halloween Tale will bring to close a chapter of the Halloween franchise that was started by John Carpenter in 1978â€”something that was abandoned when Hollywood remade the original film in 2007.
John Tate has been living as John Freeling in Orlando Fl, for the past 10 years. As Halloween approaches John begins to dream of his half sister Jamie, she comes to him warning him that their uncle the boogieman has re-awakened and will kill again. She tells him that together they can put an end to his rage and finally break their families curse. Meanwhile Haddonfield has gotten an upgrade by a huge construction company and has been bringing families back into its fold. New partner Greg Trent has a lot to prove and has gotten his friends together for the grand opening to the new Haddonfield. In the end John finds himself with a choice, run or go back to Haddonfield and face the boogieman one last time.
Legends 2 will have premieres in both Orlando and North Carolina.(dates to be determined). After that it will be available for download OCT 31, 2011 at godboutfilms.com/legends2.htm.
