Halloween Shooting This Fall; More From Danny McBride

Danny McBride recently appeared on the Jim Norton & Sam Roberts Show to talk more about the upcoming next installment in the Halloween franchise he’s working on with director David Gordon Green.

First and foremost McBride confirmed that the flick will be filming this fall. He also talked more about his approach to the material.

It’s not a reboot; it’s not gonna be a rehash,” said McBride. “It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out. I’d already seen all these movies, but I’ve really been studying them now and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might’ve made. The first Halloween is scary as shit. And the second Halloween is scary, but not as scary. And then from there, it isn’t as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he’s not gonna die. There’s no suspense.

We’re just trying to play with that. Make him real. Not make him real by giving him some crazy backstory either. Just getting back to the basics. Even the moment that they made Laurie and Michael Myers siblings – it also makes it not quite as scary. So all that kind of stuff to us… those are the things that took an amazing idea and took it somewhere it wasn’t quite as effective.

Interesting… Rob Zombie’s take on Myers was that he was real, but it would be cool to see what would happen if that basis could be applied in a newer, fresher, and dare I say, less skanky world.

John Carpenter, who may also be providing the film’s score, will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

Halloween is expected to return to theaters October 19, 2018.
