David Gordon Green’s Halloween Sequel Will Tweak The Original Film’s Ending

After bigging up the film’s horror elements (spoilers: “You should be very scared) and tracing Jamie Lee Curtis’ involvement in the project, Danny McBride – yes, that Danny McBride – has now offered up some new intel relating to Halloween and, more specifically, how it’ll tweak the original ending of John Carpenter’s timeless classic.

In doing so, the Halloween of 2018 will be able to skate around all other sequels and pretend they never happened – much to the bemusement of Danielle Harris. Exactly how David Gordan Green plans to retcon the Michael Myers saga is up for question at this early stage, but at least according to McBride, it’ll begin “as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way.” Color us intrigued.

The Vice Principals star recently sat down with Yahoo to discuss the sequel’s development, which will see McBride receive a writing credit for his contribution.

Veep Season 7 Production Postponed for Julia Louis-Dreyfus' Cancer Treatment, Ep Confirms
Veep won’t continue its time in office until its leading lady is ready to do so, an executive producer for the HBO comedy said Wednesday.

Speaking during Sirius Xm’s Press Pool, Ep Frank Rich mentioned that production on the series was scheduled to have started by now, but that work on the seventh and final season wouldn’t move forward until star Julia Louis-Dreyfus was ready — confirming what TVLine reported in September after Louis-Dreyfus revealed that she’d been diagnosed with breast cancer.

Danny McBride on the plot and tone of the Halloween reboot, and convincing Jamie Lee Curtis to return

Love it, or hate it, a Halloween reboot is being released next year from the minds of Danny McBride and David Gordon Green. Regardless of how you feel about the team involved, or the fact that the film will disregard every Halloween sequel, there is one thing we can (possibly) all agree on: having Jamie Lee Curtis back as Laurie Strode is awesome. So how was she convinced to give the character yet another go? According to Danny McBride (via Yahoo), it all came down to her character being too well-written to refuse:

“We pitched to John Carpenter, and he was into it, which kind of blew David and me away, but I still think nobody was really talking about Jamie… I think everyone was kind of on the mindset of it’d be a grab to get her, but no one really knew if we would be able to.

‘American Horror Story: Cult’ Review: Finale Pitches a Misandrist Takeover That Sounds Pretty Good Right Now

‘American Horror Story: Cult’ Review: Finale Pitches a Misandrist Takeover That Sounds Pretty Good Right Now
[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for “American Horror Story: Cult,” Season 7, Episode 11, “Great Again” — the season finale.]

As one cult comes to an end, another begins.

So goes “American Horror Story: Cult,” the ambitious seventh season of Ryan Murphy’s acclaimed horror franchise. After spending an entire season examining a Trump stand-in’s reign of terror, the ending ominously hinted at a new king — well, a new queen. Ally (Sarah Paulson) took down Kai (Evan Peters), stole his senate seat, and began her own quest for greater power — with the help of “some very special, very powerful friends who are going to bring about the better world we were talking about.”

Made clear when she dons her green hood, Ally is referring to the radical feminist cult inspired by Valerie Solanas’ (Lena Dunham) “Scum Manifesto.” It appears the newly elected senator is ready to unleash the female rage first cultivated by Solanas,

Want To See What It’d Be Like If David Fincher Directed Halloween?

Because I’m a giant film geek, I absolutely adore those “what if X directed Y” video mashups. Perhaps my all-time favorites are Patrick (H) Willem’s What If Wes Anderson Directed X-Men and What If Ingmar Bergman Directed The Flash. Now, it looks like we have two new challengers: “Jack and Justin” aka Justin Nijm and Jack Bishop, who you might be familiar with from their online comedy shorts – particularly, Dennis Quaid’s On-Set Freak-Out, which was featured on Jimmy Kimmel.

Recently, they served up a cool-as-hell imagining of what a David Fincher-directed Halloween might look like. Clearly, the pair know their Fincher, as they’ve gone to impressive lengths to emulate the aesthetics and atmosphere of one of his movies, complete with a stabilized camera and color correction. On top of all that, they’ve used Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ remix of the Halloween theme, which

Here’s How Jamie Lee Curtis Was Convinced To Return For Halloween Reboot

Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode is horror’s original final girl, having survived a whole film of being menaced by Michael Myers. She’d go on to appear in a few subsequent Halloween movies and, to the delight of fans everywhere, it was recently announced that she’ll reprise the role in next year’s outing.

You might think the actress would have a bit of horror fatigue by now, especially as her character (apparently) died in Halloween: Resurrection, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. In a recent interview with Yahoo, Danny McBride revealed the following when asked how him and David Gordon Green got her to return.

We pitched to Carpenter, and he was into it, which kind of blew David and me away, but I still think nobody was really talking about Jamie… I think everyone was kind of on the mindset of it’d

The New ‘Halloween’ Movie Is A Straight Horror – Definitely Not A Comedy

“If he’s [John Carpenter] not interested, we’re definitely not into making this.”

With the likes of David Gordon Green and Danny McBride behind the planned Halloween redo/ sequel which is currently in the works, you may be expecting some kind of horror-comedy meta-movie. Well, the great news is that this definitely isn’t the case. In a recent chat with Yahoo!, McBride has said that being loyal and respectful to the original movie is of the utmost importance to him and his co-writer in Green. They will essentially be ignoring every movie apart from the original and creating a brand new timeline. More on the new Halloween movie below.

Danny McBride Comments on the Approach to the Storyline in New Halloween Movie

  • DailyDead
With 2017's Halloween season now in the rearview mirror, it's already time to start looking ahead to the autumn of 2018, which will feature the release of the first Halloween movie in nearly ten years. Written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, the next installment in the horror franchise has been hinted to take place in a separate timeline from the sequels, and in a recent interview, McBride discussed the "alternate reality" of the new movie and how it may even look at John Carpenter's original film in a different way.

Speaking with Yahoo, McBride had this to say about the timeline of the new Halloween movie:

"We’re kind of ignoring all the films past the first one. It picks up after the first one, but it’s sort of an alternate reality. It’s as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way."

Halloween Reboot Changes Original Movie's Ending
After nearly a decade-long break, Michael Myers is making his return to the big screen next year with Blumhouse's Halloween reboot. David Gordon Green and Danny McBride, the duo behind Pineapple Express, wrote the script for the movie, with Green set to direct. It's been known for a while now that this new movie will ignore every single Halloween sequel, but now McBride reveals that it's even going to change the ending of John Carpenter's original classic. Here's what he had to say about it in a recent interview.

"We're kind of ignoring all the films past the first one. It picks up after the first one, but it's sort of an alternate reality. It's as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way."

That's a pretty bold move, but given that we know very little about the movie, in terms of specific plot details, it could be necessary.

‘Halloween’ Reboot Timeline Confirmed by Danny McBride
While the Halloween franchise has had its ups and downs in the various sequels and Rob Zombie remakes over the past 39 years, there’s a bright shining beacon of hope in the series at the moment.

Danny McBride Dishes On Halloween Sequel: “You Should Be Very Scared”

Take heed, film fans, for David Gordon Green is about to deliver a “straight horror” sequel with Halloween.

Or so says Danny McBride, co-writer on Halloween and one of the driving forces behind HBO sitcom Vice Principals. Now that the latter has reached a surprisingly violent conclusion, McBride sat down with Yahoo Movies to talk about the oncoming return of Michael Myers.

First and foremost, the writer-director warned budding viewers that everyone involved is pulling to create a truly terrifying follow-up to the John Carpenter classic, as Laurie Strode gears up for one last confrontation with Myers.

I think you should be very scared. I mean, this isn’t a comedy at all. I think there was, like, maybe one joke on the page, but the rest is straight horror. So hopefully it gets in people’s heads and keeps them up late at night.

‘The Punisher’ Season 1 Review: Marvel’s Least Superhero-y Show Ever Fails to Find a Spark
The culture surrounding the launch of “The Punisher” has been an incredibly complicated one, as the Marvel spinoff is theoretically about a character who, in this realm of superheroes, has only one superpower: being very good with guns, knives, and however else you might choose to kill people. It’s so ingrained in the identity of the brand that the show’s premiere was delayed for over a month, following the violence in Las Vegas in October. It’s hard to root for a fictional sniper, after all, after a real-life one has orchestrated this level of awfulness.

But while it made sense to push “The Punisher’s” premiere date, there was a misstep on the part of Netflix and Marvel. “The Punisher” should have premiered on Veterans Day. The series, while technically existing in the worlds of “Daredevil,” “Jessica Jones,” and the rest of the Marvel universe, is far
