A new Halloween film is on the way with actor and writer Danny McBride (The Foot Fist Way, Your Highness) penning the script, and David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Stronger) set to direct.
If that duo, better known for their comedies than dramas or horror films, sounds like a step in the wrong direction, the script is supposedly fantastic… and Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to the franchise. Also, John Carpenter is returning to do the new score. Did that help ease anyone’s fears?
Still, how exactly will the latest Halloween film fit into the overall continuity of the franchise, especially with Jamie Lee Curtis returning? McBride had this to say in an interview with Yahoo Entertainment:
“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 an interesting approach to take, and it may be the right one, as there have already been ten Halloween movies making for a very muddled storyline that seems to have made all the wrong moves as the years have passed since the 1978 original.
Does this approach to a Halloween sequel’s story sound appealing to you? Or is it a crime to ignore the franchise’s other chapters? Let us know in the comment section below!
