Carpenter is ready to bring Michael Myers back: “So you say you want a Revolution? You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again? Well so do I. David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed. David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and… WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away. I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool” McBride says there won’t be any humour in the film: “David and I are thrilled to step outside of our comedic collaborations and dive into a dark and vicious horror. Nobody will be laughing” Dark Universe will continue to keep you updated on the biggest breaking news of this year.
