The Return Of A Horror Movie Icon
♦ This October, it’s Halloween all over again as a new version of the film will be out, released in US cinemas this week in fact, and here’s a new featurette talking to its writers Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley from FilmIsNowMovie Bloopers & Extras…
Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween will also be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures.
