Halloween reboot will improve on previous sequels

Alien: Covenant star Danny McBride has promised to ‘improve’ his forthcoming remake/reboot of Halloween.

Chatting to Empire Podcast, the actor said that he and fellow producer and director David Gordon Green were planning on “stripping down” the series.

Look at where the Halloween franchise has gone,” he said. “There’s a lot of room for improvement (laughs). David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are humongous fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original Halloween, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we’re just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original.

“It was just very simple and just achieved that level of horror that wasn’t corny and it wasn’t turning Michael Myers into some supernatural being that couldn’t be killed. That stuff to me isn’t scary, I want to be scared by something that I really think could happen. I think it’s much more horrifying to be scared by someone standing in the shadows while you’re taking the trash out as opposed to someone who can’t be killed pursuing you.

Halloween is set to be directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green and Danny McBride. It has a release date of 19 October 2018.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
