Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions and John Carpenter who is serving as an executive producer/creative consultant will bring Michael home once again! Blum is the man behind the horror movies, Insidious, Paranormal Activity, Sinister, The Visit, The Purge and much more! So the new Halloween movie will feel right at home.
Blum said “HALLOWEEN is one of those milestone films that inspired everyone at our company to get into the world of scary movies,” Blum said, “and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together. We cannot wait to find and collaborate with the right filmmaker to give Halloween fans the movie they deserve.” Carpenter said “HALLOWEEN needs to return to its traditions,” Carpenter said. “I feel like the movies have gotten away from that… Michael is not just a human being; he’s a force of nature, like the wind. That’s what makes him so scary.”
