News Danny McBride Says Next Year’s ‘Halloween’ Will Focus on Dread and Tension Published 11 months ago on December 1, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet As reported around a week ago, director David Gordon Green’s Halloween film has been delayed until mid-January. The film will take place directly after John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic, ignoring every other sequel. One half of the films writers Danny McBride recently spoke with the folks over at Charleston City Paper, teasing that the film will focus more on dread and tension. “The original is all about tension,” McBride told the site. “Laurie Strode doesn’t even know that Michael Myers exists until the last minutes of the movie. So much of it you’re in anticipation of what’s going to happen and the dread that Carpenter spins so effortlessly in that film… I think we were really trying to get it back to that. We’re trying to mine that dread. Mine that tension and not just go for gore and ultra-violence that you see some horror movies lean on.” He continued, “To us, it was all about bringing back the creep factor and trying to find the horror in your own backyard, in our own homes.” Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the next year’s Halloween. Judy Greer (Jurassic World) is in talks to play Karen, the daughter of Laurie. John Carpenter will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Synopsis: “Laurie Strode 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.” Halloween will stalk theaters on October 19th, 2018.
