I'm not 100% sure, but I believe there is an issue with rights regarding the actors. I know Sigourney Weaver has held the rights for the use of her image being as Ripley from the Alien series. I'm not entirely sure how it works, but actors can retain the rights to their images. It could also be that AMC said you have to pay X amount more to use character images.
@HorrorNightsORL: #HHN25 Update- the team has been hard at work on concepts. Elements of our past are definitely going to be represented next year.
@HorrorNightsORL: With next being a huge anniversary.. What has resonated the most with you.. My fellow hardcore fans of HHN? Characters, thematics, mazes etc
@HorrorNightsORL: Concepts... http://t.co/M1f2pt2f11
That little tiny concept pic, the reference to the past, and some answers to Mike's questions made me think...
One of the suggestions was using past houses as scarezones and past scarezones as houses. We know from the initial tease that Jack will be making a reappearance. Could the inmates finally leave the asylum, and wreak havoc in the streets?
And since it occurred to me as I was typing the word havoc, could we see the DoWs in e streets?
