New Halloween Film Will Pick Up After First Two Original Films

Halloween

After recent news of Friday the 13th being shelved, it was incredibly great news to hear that a new Halloween film was getting made with David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Joe) and Danny McBride writing the film.

Further news is being released and telling us that the film will not be a remake, but instead will pick up where the original Halloween 2 left off.

Said McBride:

“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.”

John Carpenter will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

The new Halloween movie is coming October 19th, 2018.
