“Legends 2” is set in 2008 and follows the story of John Tate, the son of Laurie Strode, 10 years after the events in Halloween H20. However, just like the original Legends these events happen in the real world, not in the world of the films. This allows us to leave the canon of the Halloween series alone and lets us play with our own characters and events.
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 is on his way home. She tells him that together they can put an end to his rage and finally break their families curse. John has a choice, run again or go back to Haddonfield and face the boogieman one last time.
LEGENDS 2 “A Halloween Tale” will bring a chapter of the Halloween franchise that was started by John Carpenter in 1978, to a close. Something that was abandoned since the 2007 & 2009 remakes.
In 2004, filmmaker Gerald J Godbout III set out to make the ultimate Friday The 13th fan film, when Paramount Pictures held a contest to let fans come up with their own Friday short. However, Writer, Director Gerald J Godbout III found out about this contest late and as hard as he tried he could not finish his film on time. On August 8, 2004 “Legends” was premiered at the Universal Cineplex in Orlando, Fl to a sold out crowd of 600. The following day it was released online and from the start, Director Gerald J Godbout III knew he accomplished what he set out to do. What he did not expect is how popular his film would become and by the end of the first month 90,000 people had downloaded his film, by the end of three months 300,000 people. In fact to date it is estimated that the film has been downloaded 800,000 times. Five years later, in 2009, Gerald J Godbout III would re-visit LEGENDS and re-cut the film to make a Director’s cut, fixing things that bothered him the first time around. Since its 2004 release LEGENDS had gone on to be named by fans “the #1 Friday the 13th Fan Film around.” So when the film was re-released, a subtitle was added and LEGENDS “A FRIDAY THE 13th TALE”.
LEGENDS 2 “A Halloween Tale” is slated for release for 2011. This time along for the ride not as an actor but Producer is Allan Marrero who was the lead in the original Legends. Together Both Allan & Gerald are hoping lighting will strike twice and the fans will like Legends 2 as much as they did part 1.
