Halloween Shooting This Fall; More From Danny McBride

Published

on

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.

When Will World War Z 2 Begin Filming?

Published

on

Supposedly the upcoming David Fincher World War Z sequel was rumored to begin shooting this fall, but now that doesn’t seem to be happening.

The Playlist reports that the script for World War Z 2 – written by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises, Peaky Blinders, Taboo) and Dennis Kelly (Utopia) – is still in development and apparently not ready quite yet. Add to that, Brad Pitt‘s schedule may be an issue as he’s shooting Tarantino‘s new movie soon.

While some location scouting has taken place in Bilbao, Spain, Sweden, Texas and other spots around the world, evidently Fincher will be taking on the second season of Netflick’s Mindhunter first.

Are you upset to know that World War Z 2 might still be a ways off? Hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

Synopsis:

When former U.N. investigator Gerry Lane (Brad Pitt) and his family get stuck in urban gridlock, he senses that it’s no ordinary traffic jam. His suspicions are confirmed when, suddenly, the city erupts into chaos. A lethal virus, spread through a single bite, is turning healthy people into something vicious, unthinking and feral. As the pandemic threatens to consume humanity, Gerry leads a worldwide search to find the source of the infection and, with luck, a way to halt its spread.
