News David Gordon Green and Danny McBride Talk New ‘Halloween’ Film Published 2 years ago on March 7, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet This isn’t really anything different to what the pair have already talked about before, but David Gordon Green and Danny McBride were interviewed by Indiewire regarding the new Halloween film, stating that “it’s going to be incredible.” In our previous update, McBride made it clear that this isn’t going to be a remake but rather a continuation of the first two original Halloween films. We can’t talk for too much about the Halloween reboot, but David and I had a long talk with each other about when people do these with movies, where it goes wrong. ‘What pisses me off when it comes to something I like?’ We all came to the decision that remaking something that already works isn’t a good idea. So we just have a reimagining instead. David Gordon Green on receiving an email from Jason Blum, and meeting up with John Carpenter: Jason Blum came to me. I’m a huge horror fan and I’ve never made one. I developed Suspiria for several years with Luca Guadagnino, who’s finishing directing it. It’s going to be incredible. I woke up at a hotel and had this email from Jason that said, ‘Halloween reboot. You get it. What do you say?’ I was just like, ‘What the fuck does this mean?’ I wrote him back and said, ‘Call me immediately, my body is reacting to this,’ because Halloween is one of those influential movies that I was never allowed to see and lied about having not seen to my parents for years. It hit all the right taboos, and it had a lore to it. We’re just writing it now. The coolest part about that was going to John Carpenter and pitching him. If he didn’t like the take, it wouldn’t bode well. He’s one of my biggest heroes. I think we were just so concerned about getting the job that we didn’t think about how fucking scary that was to go sit down in front of him to tell him how we’d continue the story he’d created. It wasn’t until afterward that I realized, ‘Fuck, this could go so badly. We’ll be really hurt if he schools us right now.’ 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. Halloween is coming to theaters on October 19th, 2018.
