It was not that long ago that we leaned that the upcoming new HALLOWEEN film from Blumhouse had acquired none other than the original Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis. With director David Gordon Green and his writing partner Danny McBride ready for to create their new vision that is John Carpenter approved.
We have learned that filming on the new HALLOWEEN film will begin next month, as David Gordon Green told Filmmaker Magazine that HALLOWEEN (2018) will be filming in six weeks.
David Gordon Green says in regards to the new HALLOWEEN film:
“We start shooting in six weeks in Charleston. I can’t say too much more as we are trying to keep things tight right now, but we are doing something unique. John Carpenter is involved as well, which is like a dream to me. The two films I couldn’t watch growing up were Halloween and Revenge of the Nerds, so I can’t wait to invite my parents to this one.”
Carpenter, who directed the 1978 original, is executive producing the film and added that he could possibly score it as well.
“Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
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.”
Producer Jason Blum has vowed that the new HALLOWEEN film will arrive into theaters on October 19th 2018.
