The more I hear about the upcoming Halloween reboot, the more I think it will rock and may even allow us to pretend that Rob Zombie never went anywhere near the franchise. During the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend, director Gordon Green provided an update on the project. Via reporter Jason Guerrasio on Twitter:
“David Gordon Green tells me John Carpenter has seen the script, given notes, digs it. Still wants to do score.”
And some time later:
“The plan is to shoot this fall with an eye on a Halloween night opening in 2018″.
Carpenter is also executive producing the movie. I’m not actually surprised that he wants to score it, considering his recent musical adventures which seem to have reinvigorated him, and which now include an upcoming CD of re-mixed versions of many of his film themes.
