So I guess this week is Halloween week! More news is coming out concerning Danny McBride’s (Pineapple Express, Tropic Thunder, Alien:Covenant) Halloween franchise “refresh”.
Movieweb is reporting that the film will begin shooting this fall. That’s pretty cool. With the film being shot in the fall, I expect some pretty awesome low-budget cinematography!
Additionally, Movieweb shares some more Danny McBride comments:
“It’s not a reboot, it’s not gonna be a rehash. 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.”
Danny McBride seems to be on the right track!
