Faster than you can say “Fangoria is dead and irrelevant”(which it truly is[at this point]),the news rose out on the Internet that both Blumhouse production’s Jason Blum and John Carpenter have found two new people to write and direct their new HALLOWEEN film for Miramax,and they are none other than…
Danny McBride and David Gordon Green ?!?!?!?!
Great. Two figures closely associated with comedy are now attached to write and direct(with Green taking that helm) the new HALLOWEEN film,which is rumored to be yet another reboot(ala Rob Zombie’s 2007 film) and both Carpenter and HALLOWEEN producer Malek Akkad are giving high praise for both McBride’s and Green’s treatment with Carpenter saying that they nailed it and how their concept blew him,Blum,and Akkad away.
Has John Carpenter completely fucking lost it,for as far as it goes with me all hope has been lost for this film project. No,I’m not to brownnose and call this a brilliant move nor will I change my mind about it,for I no longer have any interest in it and it seems that Carpenter doesn’t care what happens with the series since all he(along with Blum,Akkad,and the suits at Miramax) is(/are) about these days is just about the money and nothing that involves any type of integrity for what he once had when it came to his many classic films. Carpenter might have well have gotten the likes of Uwe Boll,Ulli Lommel,Kevin Tenney,Jeff Burr,Anthony Hickox,and/or even Albert Pyun to write and direct since one of them would turn out a much better HALLOWEEN film if given the chance.
Otherwise,I’ll just wait for the Eibon Press comic book adaptation(complete with videos of fans doing cartwheels in excitement after opening up their packages)….no:better yet,I’ll just wait for the future free library rental.
No Plans For Me To See This Week’s Theatrical Releases Of Both JOHN WICK:CHAPTER 2 and FIFTY SHADES DARKER,Since I Don’t Have Any Interest In Seeing Them
