HALLOWEEN Isn’t a Reboot, It’s a Reinvention says Jason Blum



This Halloween we will all finally get to set our eyes on Blumhouse’s upcoming reboot of Halloween from Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green. The film will see the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and we couldn’t be more excited for the reboot.

Just don’t call it a reboot, says producer Jason Blum. He prefers the term “reinvention”.

The way to get people interested is to not reboot,” Blum told Variety. “The term makes my hair stand up on the back of my neck. What we’re doing with Halloween is, I guess I’ll use the term ‘reinvention.’ Reboot just sounds so corporate.”

He continues: “The way we attacked Halloween was to go after what we’ve done with a lot of other movies. David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are not known for horror, Jordan Peele was not known for horror before Get Out, so I think we’ve had a lot of success mixing genres of people – not the movie – the movie’s a straight, scary movie.”

You can check out the Twitter video on Blum explaining all of this below.

Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.

The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.


Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
