News Mike Flanagan Almost Revived ‘Halloween’ With a Female Dr. Loomis Published 2 months ago on December 2, 2019 By Nick Bond Share Tweet While we wait for Blumhouse’s Halloween Kills to stalk theatres in October of 2020, you can enjoy this fun little Halloween franchise update. Mike Flanagan, director of this year’s Doctor Sleep, was recently interview on BD‘s podcast show The Boo Crew, where he revealed that he once had the opportunity to revive Halloween. RELATED: JAMIE LEE CURTIS SAYS KYLE RICHARDS GET “DOWN” IN ‘HALLOWEEN KILLS’ “Jason Blum called me once and asked me that,” Flanagan revealed to the podcasters. “I tried to come up with a take for a minute when Blumhouse got Halloween.” Flanagan envisions what his Halloween film would look like: “I would do Hush. In a lot of ways, Hush is my Halloween.” He continued: “I found my notes for that very brief period of time when I was trying to come up with a take on Halloween because Jason had said, ‘Hey, if you want to do this we can probably figure something out.’ I’m glad that I didn’t and so glad it did not come to me because the only note that I had scribbled over three days of brainstorming was ‘Dr. Loomis a woman?’ That’s as far as I got on Halloween.” “They made the right call in not trusting the franchise to me,” he jokes. “In a lot of ways, Hush was my riff on the beautiful, simplicity, silence, tension, suspense that Halloween is. All of my love for Carpenter’s film is poured into that.” Finally, he added: “If Hush didn’t exist, and I was doing Halloween, it would look a lot like Hush.” Can you imagine having a female Dr. Loomis in the Halloween franchise?
