Fangoria Interview
Jul 20, 2006 - Michael Gingold

During Fango's visit to the shoot, Return producer Thomas van Dell revealed that he and original Sleepaway/Return writer/director Robert Hiltzik are already planning another chapter in the summer-slaughter series. "The next one is called Sleepaway Camp Reunion," van Dell tells Fango, "and it's the last one in our trilogy," which ignores the late '80s' Sleepaway Camp II and III. "It's basically about what happens when evil reunites, and that's all I'm saying about the storyline. The third one will by far surpass the first film as far as how sick it is.

"I don't know if Robert is going to direct, but he has already started on the writing," van Dell continues. "He has the bulk of the beginning and end done, and we're gonna piece the middle of it together. I don't think he'll have the time to direct; we're actually looking for another director now. But we're going to go back and retain the same people [Gerner and Spears] who are doing the effects on this one, and keep a nice small team again on it. That's really the most important and crucial part of something like this, where you can either gain the picture or lose it, so we're going to stick with people we know and trust and who have delivered for us so quickly, and just keep going that way. Their work looks fantastic."
