LOS ANGELES, Feb 10: David Gordon Green, the co-creator of “Eastbound & Down”, will direct a new ‘Halloween’ horror movie.
The film’s script will be co-written by Gordon Green and his frequent collaborator Danny McBride, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
John Carpenter, the co-creator of the franchise who directed the 1978 original, made the announcement.
“David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and… WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away,” Carpenter said.
“I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool. And you’ll get to see it in theatres on October 19th, 2018.”
Halloween is one of the most recognizable horror movie franchises, thanks to its iconic killer character and memorable music. The original film spawned seven sequels, some of them reboots, plus a 2007 remake directed by Rob Zombie, and its follow-up. (PTI)
