News The Future Of Blumhouse’s ‘Halloween’ Movie Seems Bleak Published 3 years ago on October 6, 2016 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Blumhouse’s upcoming Halloween movie doesn’t seem to have made any kind of progress since the news broke back in May. It’s been 5 long months since we last heard anything solid on the next franchise film, and the most shocking part was that horror master John Carpenter would be on board to produce the project. There was also a rumour going around that either Mike Flanagan or Adam Wingard could be directing, neither of those turned out to be true so the company is still stuck back at the beginning. Today, we have a small update on the project from straight Jason Blum himself. We can’t help but feel very disappointed on its lack of progress, maybe things will pick back up again once they find the right approach. Blum had this to say to Cinemablend: “We haven’t landed on an approach. We haven’t landed on a filmmaker, and we haven’t landed on an approach. We thought we had a filmmaker and an approach, and we don’t. We’re talking to a handful of people about it — all of them have different ideas. I don’t believe in coming up with an idea and telling a filmmaker what to do. So we have three to five different people we’re talking with, and all of them have a different idea about what it should be. And we haven’t landed on a group, and as a result we haven’t landed on an idea.” John Carpenter is still executive producing the project, and is hopefully still on board to score as well.
