New Halloween movie is so definitely coming out in October 2018


Anyone gonna chop his head off?

Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions -- you know the company behind every big horror movie of the past decade (Get OutParanormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge) -- has been working on a Halloween reboot for a few years now, and the last we heard it was coming out in October of 2018. However, that's getting closer and closer and we haven't heard a word about it except the initial reports that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green would write with Green also directing, and that it will be a direct sequel to Halloween II and just skip over the other movies.

Well, maybe not III considering that wasn't connected at all and a new Mike Myer's story wouldn't necessarily erase that from continuity... but I digress. 

Given the fact that we haven't heard anything The Wrap asked Blumhouse if that October 2018 release was gonna happen. He was pretty adamant:

“You can kill me. You can behead me. You can chop my hand off, the prince of horror, you can cut my hand off. That’s on the record.”

So yea, we're probably going to get a new Halloween by then. Reports are also coming in that John Carpenter has seen the script, given notes, and is very excited the score the film. That would definitely give it a leg up considering the man created some of the most iconic horror scores ever.
