Another Halloween Reboot!
It seems like only yesterday (actually weeks ago) that I was mentioning all those remakes and reboots in development and again this week we found out about another one- Halloween- to be precise. We all remember the Rob Zombie remake which split audiences right down the middle. Some liked his penchant for brutality and gore and others were put off by his dialogue and filming style. Either way we can all agree that it was a pale imitation of the original. He didn't change enough to make it fully his own thing and he changed to much for it to be a homage.
Now we have another reboot in production and before you all get too excited and we all get behind our keyboards and cry havoc on social media lets look at the creative team behind this reboot.
John Carpenter is on board as an executive Producer which is great news and the film is also being produced by Jason Blum, CEO of Blumhouse Productions as you all know Blumhouse are responsible for such series as Insidious, Paranormal Activity and The Purge so they have a strong pedigree with horror. No word yet on who will be directing this reboot but the rumor is that Blumhouse want James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw) for the job but as he will be tied up directing Aquaman for Warners I don't think that rumour holds water, pardon the pun.
My guess would be one of these names:
Stiles White (Ouija)
Mike Flanagan (Oculus)
Robert Eggers (The Witch)
Jeremy Saulnier (Green Room)
Patrick Brice (Creep)
Do you think I'm right or way of the mark? Let me know in the comments below or on Facebook or Twitter.
