John Carpenter is officially attached to a new HALLOWEEN movie!
Remember when we were are all kind of excited for HALLOWEEN RETURNS? It was supposed to be the sequel/reboot we wanted -- but things sort of fell apart with that movie and no one really knew why -- until today.
It has been announced that there is, in fact, a new HALLOWEEN going into production...with series creator John Carpenter attached as an executive producer and creative consultant...and he may also be doing to music.
This. Is. Epic.
We’re thrilled to announce that Michael has found a new home at last — thanks to the efforts of Blumhouse founder/CEO Jason Blum, HALLOWEEN franchise producer Malek Akkad, Miramax and Trancas International Films, who have just announced a team-up of historic proportions to bring a new HALLOWEEN to the big screen.What do you think? Are you excited now?
But hang on for the best part…
Tonight’s press gathering included a surprise appearance by none other than the father of HALLOWEEN himself, John Carpenter, who took the stage to confirm that he’s officially signed onto the new film as Executive Producer and Creative Consultant (Blum describes him as “Godfather” of the project), which bodes very well that the film will bring the franchise back in line with his original vision.
