So once again, it seems that somebody somewhere in Hollywood thought that it would be a good idea to make yet another Halloween movie, despite the fact that the horror movie franchise has been completely ruined and the fans seem to not be interested in yet another Halloween instalment.
However, Hollywood superstar Danny McBride, who is probably best known for his comedy work, has been brought in to co-write the screenplay for the new Halloween movie, and the actor has been teasing fans about what they can expect from the new project. Danny says that he is a big fan of the original Halloween movie, and he is hoping to write a script that can be just as scary as that film.
McBride explained, "We're just trying to play with that. Make him real. Not make him real by giving him some crazy backstory either. Just getting back to the basics. Even the moment that they made Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and Michael Myers siblings - it also makes it not quite as scary. So all that kind of stuff to us ... those are the things that took an amazing idea and took it somewhere it wasn't quite as effective.''
He added, "I'd already seen all these movies but I've really been studying them now and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might've made. The first 'Halloween' is scary as s**t. And the second 'Halloween' is scary but not as scary. And then from there, it isn't as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he's not gonna die. There's no suspense."
Danny McBride is penning the Halloween screenplay with David Gordon Green, who is also on board to direct the project, which is currently aiming for a 2018 release date, to open in line with the 40th anniversary of the original Halloween film.
