Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Some time ago, John Carpenter revealed to the world that he would be involved in the next installment of HALLOWEEN, and that it would be written by the writing team of David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.
Green and McBride both share the scripting duties with Green also in the director chair for the project. Carpenter, who directed the 1978 original, is executive producing the film and added that he could possibly score it as well.
Today we bring you an update on that. Reporter Jason Guerrasio brings word from the TIFF where he was able to talk with director David Gordon Green about the new HALLOWEEN film and here is what he posted on Twitter:
“HALLOWEEN update from #TIFF17: David Gordon Green tells me John Carpenter has seen the script, given notes, digs it. Still wants to do score.”
Not only that, but producer Jason Blum recently spoke with TheWrap, who calls him the Prince of Horror. They asked him about the October 2018 release of the new HALLOWEEN film and he replied:
“You can kill me. You can behead me. You can chop my hand off, the prince of Horror, you can cut my hand off. That’s on the record."
Danny McBride previously said of the new project:
“It’s not a reboot, it’s not gonna be a rehash. It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out. I’d already seen all these movies but I’ve really been studying them now, and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might’ve made.
The first Halloween is scary as sh*t. And the second Halloween is scary, but not as scary. And then from there, it isn’t as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he’s not gonna die. There’s no suspense.
We’re just trying to play with that. Make him real. Not make him real by giving him some crazy backstory either. Just getting back to the basics. Even the moment that they made Laurie and Michael Myers siblings – it also makes it not quite as scary. So all that kind of stuff to us… those are the things that took an amazing idea and took it somewhere it wasn’t quite as effective.”
Remember that the plan is for the new HALLOWEEN movie to begin shooting this fall. We will continue to keep you updated.
The new HALLOWEEN film is currently scheduled to arrive into theaters on October 19th 2018.
