Not too long ago, John Carpenter made it known that the next Michael Myers film would be written by the writing team of David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.
Green will share the co-scripting duties with McBride, with Green also in the director chair for the project. Carpenter, who directed the 1978 original, is executive producing the film and could possibly score it as well.
Just recently Danny McBride talked about how the plan was to get back to basics.
McBride has now went on to talk further about their new HALLOWEEN film as he appeared as a guest on the Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Show revealing:
“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.”
Only time will tell what this new HALLOWEEN movie will bring. We will continue to keep you updated.
The project is currently scheduled to arrive into theaters on October 19th 2018.
