Rumors of a Halloween remake have been kicked around for about a year now, but it was mostly just speculation. Yesterday, it was announced that this film is happening. Carpenter has teamed up with the folks over at Blumhouse to bring Michael Myers back to the big screen. Carpenter will serve as an executive producer and composer. No word yet on who’s directing. (I vote for Jennifer Kent or David Robert Mitchell.) The film is tentatively scheduled for October of 2017.
It’s no secret that Carpenter holds a certain level of disdain for Rob Zombie’s version of the cult classic. Personally I’m a fan of both the original and the remake. Which version do you prefer? Who would you like to see as director? Do you think another Halloween remake is a good idea? Let me know in the comments!
