Carpenter said director David Gordon Green and actor Danny McBride, who worked together on comedies Pineapple Express and Your Highness, will create the new chapter in Michael Myers’s life together. They’re co-writing the script, with Green directing, but don’t worry: Carpenter will still be involved with the project as both an executive producer and consultant. There’s a chance he’ll even do the music, just like he did for the original film.
“David and Danny both came to my office recently with [producer] Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and … WOW. They get it,” Carpenter teased. “I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away.” Details are being kept under wraps, but Carpenter shared that the film will premiere October 19, 2018. I can’t help wondering if this all comes on the heels of the the Friday the 13th reboot getting shelved.
