Blumhouse’s Halloween Was Originally Going To Incorporate The Sequels

Connecting the dots between Halloween films is a complicated affair that’s about to get even messier. In a franchise already populated with reboots, retcons and abruptly abandoned plot threads, Blumhouse Productions’ upcoming sequel is set to disregard everything in the series timeline except for John Carpenter’s classic 1978 original, including the famous sibling twist of 1981’s Halloween II.

But in a interview published this week with The Hollywood Reporter, writer-director David Gordon Green suggested that the next Halloween was originally planned to slot in more neatly with the various sequels that came before.

“We started incorporating all the follow-ups and then it got overwhelming trying to engineer something that made sense. Some of the plot points became a little stretched thin as the franchise went on. And so ultimately finding those frustrations, McBride came to me and just said, ‘What’s the Michael Myers movie that you really want to see?

Michael Myers Strikes Hard in Halloween 2018 Comic-Con Poster

A killer new Halloween 2018 poster has been revealed. The poster made its way online just ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, which kicks off tonight with preview night and runs through Sunday. Universal and Blumhouse are bringing the new Halloween to the convention and, to kick things off, they have shared a brand new, Sdcc exclusive poster which is cool enough to get horror fanatics even more excited for what's coming our way later this year.

The poster comes from artist Bill Sienkiewicz and, as good as the official theatrical poster is, this thing may put that one to shame. This Halloween poster is all Michael Myers. The vantage point has us looking up at the towering slasher, with a knife cocked back in his right hand getting ready to do what he does best, and what he does isn't pretty. He's surrounded by trees and there are spots of blood splattered all over.

Halloween 2018 Script Required 80 Drafts, Constant Rewrites and Improv

Tomorrow marks 3 months exactly until Blumhouse's Halloween hits Us Theaters on October 19th. In advance of what promises to be an unprecedented promotional push, director David Gordon Green is presenting never-before-seen footage to an enthusiastic crowd at San Diego Comic-Con's prestigious Hall H. Attempting to reboot a franchise with a decades-long legacy and legions of fans was a tall order from the get-go, and Green reveals the lengths he and his team went through in order to make the film perfect.

So, what exactly does it take to reinvent one of the most established (and complex) mythologies in horror history? In an extensive interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Green admits he and frequent co-collaborator Danny McBride burned through over 80 script drafts before landing on something they felt comfortable enough to approach Carpenter with, hoping for his blessing. The breakthrough came when Green and McBride decided to disregard every Halloween

Michael Myers Casts A Shadow Over Creepy Sdcc Poster For Halloween

If Pennywise owned Halloween 2017, then this year’s spooky festivities really belong to Michael Myers.

The masked serial killer is poised for a big return thanks to Blumhouse and David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel, and with San Diego Comic-Con almost upon us, a new and suitably creepy poster has emerged online.

This particularly unsettling design will be exclusive to Sdcc, and those hoping to snag their own copy should turn on Twitter notifications for the official Halloween account – not before giving it a follow, of course. Drawn up by artist Bill Sienkiewicz, it’s a truly special showcase of Haddonfield’s infamous serial killer, who is clearly ready for another night of terror after being apprehended 40 years ago.

His escape is enough to place Laurie Strode on red alert. Although, to her credit, Jamie Lee Curtis’ seasoned protagonist has been waiting for this moment her entire adult life. She

It Took Almost 80 Drafts Before Blumhouse Cracked Halloween’s Script

You have to hand it to David Gordon Green and Halloween co-writer Danny McBride – resurrecting Michael Myers and his horror legacy is not something they’ve taken lightly.

Case in point: early on the sequel’s development, Green and McBride explored every possible story angle, resulting in “eight months [and] 80 drafts” of Halloween‘s plot. Some of those drafts even harkened back to the original sequels – sequels that were ultimately rendered non-canon by Blumhouse’s creative team.

But as writer-director David Green tells The Hollywood Reporter, that wasn’t always the case, and it was only when Halloween welcomed the return of Laurie Strode that those admittedly superfluous plot points – Michael and Laurie’s sibling subplot – fell by the wayside.

It was probably eight months of 80 drafts, exploring different ways we could go and following different characters. Then we started casting it and we learned Jamie Lee [Curtis] wanted to be in it.

'Halloween' Director on Why It Took 80 Drafts to Get the Script Right
The last time David Gordon Green was at Comic-Con, he was hoping for laughs from the Hall H crowd as he previewed the 2008 stoner comedy Pineapple Express. This year, the director is hoping a different audience reaction as he introduces the latest iteration of Michael Myers with his Halloween sequel.

The movie is set four decades after John Carpenter's classic horror film, and follows Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) as she prepares to face the crazed killer that tormented her on Halloween night in 1978.

Halloween 2018 Gets the Lego Trailer Treatment

In case you've been wondering, famed slasher Michael Myers is still very effective in Lego form. The teaser trailer for the new Halloween movie, which serves as a direct sequel to the original 1978 horror classic from the legendary John Carpenter, has been given the Lego treatment. As funny as it is to see some of this recreated with toys, it also just helps pour a little more gas on the already raging excitement fire for this movie, which is coming our way this fall.

The trailer takes the audio track from the actual trailer and faithfully recreates the whole thing from top to bottom with Lego bricks. The way the creators decided to handle the Michael Myers mask is particularly entertaining. Recreating movie trailers using the beloved toys has become common practice, in part thanks to the success of The Lego Movie a few years back. The amount of work

New Photo of Michael Myers Being a Creepy Murderous Stalker in Halloween

We've got a fresh new photo from the upcoming Halloween movie that was developed by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. It offers us another look at Michael Myers being his old creepy murderous self.

The photo comes from EW, and while talking to the magazine, Jamie Lee Curtis talks about the script for the film saying:

"What I loved is that it surgically excises all of that dead tissue. This is growing from just that original movie, 40 years later. There may be people who love the other movies, great — [they have] zero relevance to this story."

Green goes on to say that his Halloween film doesn’t entirely ignore the other sequels:

"This film isn’t one to narratively recognize any of the films other than the original Halloween. But we very much enjoy the other films and there’s a lot of very subtle shout-outs to a number of things

Halloween Producer Guarantees That We’re All Going To Love The Movie

Blumhouse Productions have a business model that essentially boils down to throwing everything at the wall to see what sticks, with predictably uneven results. Cranking out movies on a relatively low budget, the studio doesn’t need every one of their horror films to be a huge hit, so perhaps it’s inevitable that for every Get Out you get a few straight-to-vod duds. Though we’ve yet to find out where the upcoming Halloween will lie on this spectrum, at least it has producer Jason Blum’s personal seal of approval.

The founder and CEO of Blumhouse Productions took to Twitter recently to assure fans of the slasher series that they’re in for a wild ride, saying the following:

“Gang, gotta tell ya: The new @halloweenmovie movie Rocks. And you’re all going to love it. I guarantee it. So pipe down, already. And Strap In ! #Halloween”

Entertainment Weekly Shares Imposing New Image of Michael Myers from Upcoming Halloween Movie

Does it feel like fall is creeping up on you with a butcher knife in hand? You're not alone. An iconic manifestation of autumn, Michael Myers stands imposingly tall with his favorite kitchen accessory at the ready in a new Halloween movie image unveiled by Entertainment Weekly.

In addition to sharing the new image, EW caught up with the film's star, Jamie Lee Curtis, who talked about her fondness for how this movie's screenplay directly links back to the first film in the franchise (and not the sequels):

“What I loved is that it surgically excises all of that dead tissue. This is growing from just that original movie, 40 years later. There may be people who love the other movies, great — [they have] zero relevance to this story.”

Michael Myers Is Ready to Kill in Latest Look at Halloween 2018

Blumhouse is set to debut exclusive footage from their upcoming Halloween sequel during Universal's San Diego Comic-Con presentation in Hall H next Friday and they've released a new image of Michael Myers to pump up the excitement. The new Halloween is erasing everything that came after the 1978 original and treading a new path for the franchise with the blessing of horror master John Carpenter, who is also on board to compose the score for the latest movie. With Carpenter's blessing and the return of Jaime Lee Curtis and Nick Castle, it really looks like a proper return to form.

Jamie Lee Curtis has portrayed Laurie Strode in the iconic Halloween franchise in several of the films that followed John Carpenter's original 1978 classic, but she is pretty excited that the new movie is ditching everything that came after. The actress also praises the script that Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley, and David Gordon Green put together.
