David Gordon Green & Danny McBride Reunite for ‘Halloween’ Remake
There were many rumors flying about a new Halloween film, especially ones regarding the talent behind the camera. According to John Carpenter himself, the honor will actually go to David Gordon Green.
Green will reportedly helm the picture that will have a script co-written by him and frequent collaborator Danny McBride (Pineapple Express, HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”). Here’s what Carpenter had to say in the Facebook post.
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.
McBride added: “David and I are thrilled to step outside of our comedic collaborations and dive into a dark and vicious horror. Nobody will be laughing.”
I guess I’ll take their word for it.
