In an interview with Cinemablend, Danny McBride, new Halloween-franchise producer, shared an interesting horror lesson he learned while filming Alien: Covenant:
“When you get a chance to work with one of the masters like Ridley Scott, you just try to take in everything you possibly can. I’ve never been on a film like this before. I wasn’t even sure how the set would be run. If it was something where everyone is just whispering, and there’s a very dark tone on the set. Ridley surprisingly keeps things very light and fun. And there was joy in the most disgusting of scenes filmed. [laughs] And I think I saw that. This is fun. Horror can be very fun.”
Most of you all know Danny McBride from his comedic roles (Pineapple Express, Eastbound and Down, Tropic Thunder, This is the End, etc.), so it will be interesting to see what he brings to the Halloween franchise reboot.
