David Gordon Green Says ‘Halloween Kills’ Scenes Impressed John Carpenter



David Gordon Green Says 'Halloween Kills' Scenes Impressed John Carpenter

We still don’t know for sure if director David Gordon Green‘s Michael Myers sequel Halloween Kills will make it to theatres this year. The film’s producer Jason Blum recently stated that the marketing campaign for the film will not begin until the October 16th release date is 100% confirmed. We do, however, have some fun titbits for you today.

While speaking about John Carpenter’s involvement with Halloween Kills, the film’s director David Gordon Green had the following to say in an interview conducted for Empire magazine’s latest issue:

Although he didn’t direct HALLOWEEN II, he was very involved in the writing of it and he’d asked himself the same questions we’ve been asking ourselves. How do you continue this but make it satisfying and different? We’d also do Skype sessions where I’d watch him watch scenes, then he’d give feedback. He would jump, laugh and sometimes gives a thumbs up. Which for me, who grew up on ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, was pretty incredible (laughs).

Green on what Halloween Kills is focused on:

The first one was more about Laurie’s life of isolation after Michael and her attempts at revenge. It was personal. This is more about the unravelling of a community into chaos. It’s about how fear spreads virally.

John Carpenter is confirmed to provide new scores for both sequels. The third and final film will wrap up the Laurie Strode and Michael Myers saga.

The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Anthony Michael Hall as adult Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as adult Lindsey Wallace, Jibrail Nantambu as Julian, Robert Longstreet as adult Lonnie Elam, Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney are returning to play the role of Michael Myers.

It sounds like the middle chapter will focus more on the residents of Haddonfield who want to rid Michael Myers from their home town once and for all. And these past events will eventually lead us forward to Halloween Ends, which is promising one final bloody confrontation between heroine Laurie Strode and the boogeyman.

Halloween Kills will stalk theaters on October 16th, 2020.
