Jamie Lee Curtis, David Gordon Green, and Danny McBride talk with MTV News’ Josh Horowitz about ‘Halloween’.
Halloween is a 2018 American slasher film directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Jeff Fradley, and Danny McBride. It is the eleventh installment in the Halloween franchise, and is a direct sequel to the 1978 film of the same name, while retconning the continuity of the previous sequels. Set forty years after the original film, Laurie Strode comes face-to-face with Michael Myers for one final showdown on Halloween night. Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprise their roles as Strode and Myers, respectively, with stuntman James Jude Courtney also portraying Myers. The film also stars Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, and Virginia Gardner.
After failing to develop a new Halloween film in time, Dimension Films lost the production rights, which were later obtained by Blumhouse Productions, with John Carpenter‘s involvement. Carpenter, co-creator of the original Halloween, serves as a composer and executive producer as well as a creative consultant on the film.
