Following the two movies made by Rob Zombie, the Halloween movie saga is being rebooted again, and this time, director David Gordon Green it taking a stab at it. Crucially, the father of the series – John Carpenter – is back involved this time.
Green has penned the screenplay to the new movie with Danny McBride, and has given an update on its status at the Toronto Film Festival. There, he confirmed that the film is pressing ahead, and will be filming this autumn. Furthermore, the plan is to get the new Halloween in cinemas for – fittingly – October 2018.
Carpenter is also likely to write the score for the new film, and has given script notes on the screenplay that Green and McBride have penned.
