Danny McBride Confirms Halloween Reboot Follows Pt 2


Yesterday, we told you about John Carpenter’s classic horror film Halloween was getting a reboot, but now Danny McBride (This Is The End, Pineapple Express) has confirmed that its NOT a remake, its a followup to Halloween 2.

Get all the details per Danny McBride who recently said he was pumped about working on Halloween…

Danny McBride Confirms Halloween Reboot Follows Pt 2

If there is a will, there is a way to bring back Michael Myers.¬†Danny McBride and David Gordon Green found away around H20. They’re going back to a younger Michael Myers, in his prime killing days.

Now, McBride confirms that it is not a remake and will actually follow in the footsteps of the first two John Carpenter directed Halloween movies.

Danny spilled this to Cinema Blend:

“You know, it’s not a remake. It’s actually, it’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.”

Let’s not forget, despite their genius writing comedy movies, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will be writing and directing the new Halloween movie. John Carpenter will be serving as executive producer and consultant on the project. When the announcement was made, Danny McBride said “nobody will be laughing.” McBride is an edgy outspoken and mouthy type of guy onscreen, and with him appearing in Alien: Covenant, it makes sense that he could add a perspective to the genre since he’s a diehard fan of Myers. Diehard fans tend to write the best movies, take for instance Brian Singer and the X-Men franchise. He’s a huge fan, he gets it.

Here is what John Carpenter, the master of the horror genre had to say about McBride per Facebook:

“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.”

Lets point out some key bonuses:

  • Danny McBride made Eastbound & Down
  • He has the support of John Carpenter
  • McBride knows how to gross people out, like in This is the End
  • He’s a HUGE fan of the Halloween films.
  • Plus, this reboot will put an end to the terrible Rob Zombie directed Halloween films.
  • Lastly, Halloween III Season of the Witch was garbage. Producers ruined the franchise with that film. Luckily, Halloween 4 re-birthed the mythology of 1 and 2. That is where this film comes in. There is such a HUGE gap between 2 and 4, it leaves plenty of room to allow for a new take on the story without destroying what has come before it.

Halloween is set to slash its way back into theaters on October 19th, 2018.
