David Gordon Green & Danny McBride Board ‘Halloween’ Remake

So the crew behind Eastbound and Down are going to give John Carpenter’s seminal horror classic Halloween another reboot.

John Carpenter made the announcement that David Gordon Green and Danny McBride were on board via his facebook page today

So you say you want a Revolution?
You want to shake things up and bring back Halloween and make it rock again?

Well so do I.

So here’s the announcement you’ve all been waiting for:

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride are joining the project to complete the creative team. David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct. I will continue in my executive producer role to consult and offer my advice and feedback as needed.

David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away.

I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.

And you’ll get to see it in theaters on October 19th, 2018.

Deadline also reports that:

Miramax and Blumhouse will co-finance development and production of the new movie, with Trancas’ Malek Akkad and Blum producing now with Gordon Green and McBride via their Rough House Pictures. Zanne Devine and David Thwaites will oversee for Miramax.
