Having been lazy for the last few weeks and seeing that the month of September is quickly going by(and will be over in two weeks),I just had to jump onboard to quick write a new blog entry as the news came out that not only will J.J. Abrams will return to the writing and directing chores of STAR WARS:EPISODE 9(with fellow real life Sith lord Kathleen Kennedy[who’s on a roll with four to six filmmakers fired while on her watch] by his side) to further destroy that much cherished galaxy far, far away,Jamie Lee Curtis has officially announced her return to the role of Laurie Strode in the soon-to-film David Gordon Green/Danny McBride HALLOWEEN film that both Jason Blum and John Carpenter are executive producing(with carpenter possibly doing the musical score).
With both Green and McBride having already announced that their HALLOWEEN film will be a straight sequel to 1981’s HALLOWEEN 2 that’ll ignore all of the other previous HALLOWEEN sequels,spin-offs,and reboots(as those other HALLOWEEN films previously did),it comes as no surprise seeing that Curtis is joining the new film since both Green and McBride have verbally shown their full devotion to the first two films and are strongly intended upon delivering a high quality HALLOWEEN film,despite their connection to the comedy genre that made many fans(including myself) shake their heads in complete disbelief. But I suddenly did remember that Green did write and direct the Nicolas Cage starring edgy slice-of-redneck life drama JOE,for with a handful of names that are attached(to the film) there is possibly hope that this could be a good HALLOWEEN film(for a change) and we’ll have to patiently sit back and see what happens(and how it slowly develops).
And BTW: expect Green and McBride to possibly recruit James Franco(McBride’s good pal) for this new film,just to set up the DISASTER ARTIST star/director for a very gory on-screen demise.
