John Carpenter To Return To Halloween Franchise

The Return Of Michael Myers...

John Carpenter, the legendary filmmaker and creator of the original Halloween films, is teaming with Blumhouse, Miramax and Trancas to serve as executive producer and do the score for a new Halloween movie.

We don’t have any idea of what the plot details may be or where this movie will fall in the timeline established by the long running franchise. However when speaking to Collider the big man himself  John Carpenter said:

“We’re probably going to go back to the original traditions that we started with early on. It’s kind of gone astray a little bit. I thought maybe the remakes went off somewhere that I didn’t want ‘em to go. Michael Myers is not a character. He is a force of nature. He is not a person. He is part supernatural, part human. He’s like the wind. He’s an evil wind. When you start straying away from that and you get into explaining, you’re lost. So hopefully we can guide it back in that direction.

Later Adding “38 years after the original Halloween I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.”
