The horror master himself just confirmed his role as producer and consultant for the newest Blumhouse Productions next Halloween film. Read on to find out the nitty gritty details.
Excerpt taken from John Carpenter’s Facebook status:
“So you say you want a Revolution?
You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again?
Well so do I.
So here’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for:
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. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.
And you’ll get to see it in theaters on October 19th, 2018.”
There you have it, straight from the ghoul’s mouth. It’s obvious this project is in the hands of those who are very humbled for the honor and can confidently call themselves die hard fans of the inspiring franchise. With a release date already set and the creator excitedly on board, it looks as though this horror reboot won’t get the shaft before it gets off the ground. Congrats, Blumhouse!
