Carpenter approving of it, im in :mark:


Wasn't a fan of the Rob Zombie films, they were cool but I didn't appreciate the off script shit he did with the young Michael.

Where The New Halloween Will Fit Into The Mythology, According To Danny McBride

Horror movies have experienced an insane renaissance over the course of the last few years, but the slasher subgenre has fallen oddly silent. Supernatural horror is currently reigning supreme, but whatever happened to a good, old-fashioned, knife-wielding maniac? That all seems poised to change with the upcoming Halloween film that's currently slated to hit theaters in 2018. Comedian Danny McBride is currently hard at work on the project, and it seems that the highly anticipated sequel will lean heavily into the mythology of the first two Halloween films. McBride explained:

"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."

Danny McBride recently spoke to CinemaBlend's own Nick Venable about the upcoming release of the Vice Principals Season 1 Blu-ray, and the conversation eventually turned to his involvement in the new Halloween film. So now we can confirm that we will, in fact, see a continuation of the Michael Myers story when the new Halloween debuts (unlike Halloween III: Season of the Witch) and the story won't be a Rob Zombie-esque retelling of the slasher's 1978 killing spree. It's not much to go by, but it's enough to pretty much guarantee that we will see the Halloween franchise's central villain return to his status as "The Shape" that terrified us in the first two films. McBride continued:
Halloween Danny McBride

"Green and I are definitely going to [do] a straight-up horror. Halloween has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. There's a simplicity and an efficiency to that first one that I think allows the movies just to be scary as hell. And so Green and I, our approach is to get back to that."


Of course, if Halloween II is the jumping off point for the upcoming film, then it will at the very least need to rationalize how Michael Myers could go from a charred husk to able-bodied slasher after Dr. Sam Loomis blew him up.

However, while the film is not a remake, McBride doesn't necessarily specify if certain films have been stricken from the series. The Halloween franchise has one of the most disjointed continuities in all of horror, so it remains to be seen whether or not films like Halloween: Resurrection, will receive any acknowledgment.

With that in mind, McBride's comments don't give us much information regarding when the new film may take place. The first two Halloween movies take place on Halloween night 1978, and from there (if the other sequels are disregarded) the story could go in any number of directions. On the one hand, we could see a period piece sequel that takes place shortly after that first night of carnage. On the contrary, it's entirely possible that we could see Michael Myers emerge from hiding (not unlike Halloween H20) on the 40th anniversary of his first killing spree.

We will bring you more updates related to the upcoming Halloween movie as more information becomes available. The film is set to debut in theaters on October 18, 2018.

Well this was unexpected. Gordon Green is hit and miss but he can be great, and I didn't know McBride wrote stuff outside of comedy. Definitely intrigued and I can't not be excited about a Carpenter backed Halloween sequel.
Comedy is born from the same place as drama. They're the same thing with a different perspective.

Also McBride is of that age where he was young when Halloween was still pretty new. This movie would've scared the fuck out of him as a child. Not that Halloween doesn't scare everyone in any era, but being a kid around the late 70s to early 80s, Michael Myers could be lurking out there in the dark right outside your fucking window.

Good to see it will be a sequel instead of another reboot.

Danny McBride says new Halloween movie will be 'grounded in reality'

Danny McBride can already claim to be part of one legendary horror film series thanks to his role of spaceship pilot Tennessee in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant (out May 19). Next, the Eastbound & Down star is rebooting another terror franchise in the William Shatner mask-shaped form of a new Halloween film, which he is cowriting with director David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls, Your Highness).

“David Green is one of my oldest friends,” McBride told EW Radio‘s Entertainment Weirdly show. “He was my neighbor in my freshman year at college. We’ve just always been buddies, we’ve always worked together, and we have a company together. He gave me a call one day and said he had been approached to direct another installment of Halloween. We’re having a blast with it. We just love that original Halloween. There’s something so scary about how simple it was. I had seen all the Halloween films. We really were studying all the sequels and stuff, just to see where it exactly it went wrong. It definitely kind of felt that, as the series went on, Michael Myers became like Frankenstein and he was like indestructible and I think the more indestructible he was, the less scary he became. And so David and I, our ambition is to strip it down and get it back to [being] grounded in reality, which I think makes it scarier.”

First I heard about this. Sounds very promising especially with Carpenter endorsing it. Unsure about it being grounded in reality. No mortal man could absorb what Michael Myers took in the first two movies. Only the Boogie Man could. Its a shame Donald Pleasance couldn't live long enough to make a cameo. Looking forward to this mucho. :mark

Not loving the grounded in reality comment. The reason Myers is so scary is because he can't be stopped. The scariest thing about the first movie was him taking multiple slugs in the chest, falling from a second story balcony and just getting up like nothing happened. He became the boogeyman the second that happened. Not to mention if they're taking off from the original part 2, how are they going to explain the gun shots to the eyes and being burned alive? I think it's safe to say reality went out the window there.

I am in the weird minority of people who quite like the Rob Zombie movies, there I confessed.

Personally I'm not too upset about the idea of a sequel or even a full on reboot. The premise of Halloween could actually be even scarier in 2017. Most places around here don't do door-to-door trick or treating, for example, because they're afraid of what could happen to their kids. Maybe if they took that sort of angle with it, it'd be really different.

You're not the only one. I'm also in the weird minority that don't think Sheri Moon Zombie is a terrible actress.
The original Carpenter Halloween is one of my favourite movies of all time, I actually welcome some new life being breathed into the franchise. I will reserve judgement about whether Danny McBride is a good fit until I see it.

I'm not a huge fan of Zombies first attempt, but I'll go one further and say that H2 was close to a horror masterpiece for me. It's dark, gritty, incredibly brutal and at times beautiful. I know it's pretty much universally hated, but I absolutely loved it. It's probably my second favorite in the series next to the original.

As for the new one coming up next year, I'm fearful that McBride doesn't quite get it. However, I'm willing to give him and Green a shot. I just don't like the idea of continuing from the original part 2. It's going to confuse the hell out of casual fans and you're also going to have to explain the absence of Laurie and Dr. Loomis. It didn't work in the horrid "Halloween Returns" script, and I don't see it working here. They'd be better off starting from scratch. Especially since this will give the original film three different timelines now.

I really can't hate any movie that uses Nights in White Satin as much as it does.

I liked the mask they used in Zombie's movies and Tyler Mane did a good job as Myers IMO. Not really a fan of his Halloween movies as a whole though.

I'm not really a fan of them following the new film after Halloween II. But hey, let's see what they can do.

I was hoping they'd do a 'Halloween' TV Series to be honest.

Highlighting his upbringing and then that fateful night on Halloween in 6 or so episodes.
