    If they think they can do it better, good luck.

    It's really my attitude to all remakes/reboots. There have been enough of them that I've enjoyed at least as much as the originals that I'll take a crack at any of them.

    This isn't a reboot, it's an actual sequel. I think this could be big if they get Jaime Lee Curtis back.

    John Carpenter being attached as an EP doesn't mean much. He's said many times he loves reboots because it plays him a lot of money and he doesn't have to do anything. The only thing I've ever seen him excited about in regards to making a new film was an adaptation of DEAD SPACE that he really wanted to do.

    I understand, I have the same attitude.
    I was just trying to throw in some optimism.

    I didn't hate Rob Zombies remake, but the 2nd one was horrible. The Halloween movies are my favorite slasher franchise, so I'm interested in this for sure. Especially with Carpenter involved.

    Whether it's another sequel or remake, I'd like to see them make Michael Myers more human. Not some big giant like in Zombies films. Or in the later sequels, some invincible force. In the original, he was just a regular guy in a mask, and that's what made it terrifying.

    I think it'd have to be a remake. If this was present day, Michael Myers would have to be nearly 60 years old.

    It was officially announced that the Miramax Halloween film would be co-written by David Gordon Green & Danny McBride (Pineapple Express) as the duo will both be directing the film..

    David Gordon Green Directing ‘Halloween’ for Miramax | Variety

    And before anyone does groan and moan, mind I say that there have been comedians that have done horror before with a huge degree of success? For example, I can simply point out directors that have done an IP for HHN before with success; like Sam Raimi from the Evil Dead series; Joss Whedon from The Cabin in The Woods; and one of the most iconic in this list, John Landis from his work in the iconic film of An American Werewolf in London.

    It's also being done with not just Carpenter but also Jason Blum of Blumhouse and Malek Akkad which has been apart of the IP for a good period of time.

    The film releases on October 19th, 2018.

    I'm just groaning because I don't think we need another Halloween movie/reboot.

    Hopefully, the movie would be wrapped up by the end of March, and they're gonna need to hurry to edit the movie and release the movie trailer by Summer 2018.

    I would think it's a definite that we will see a trailer for when Purge comes out.

    I have a stupid amount of faith in this movie. Carpenter and Curtis are attached, Blum has a better track record with horror than most people outside of arguably A24, and David Gordon Green is someone I trust. So many passionate people attached, it can't be that bad, can it?
