The cast of the new “Halloween” movie – the one that retcons every film in the franchise but the original two – have barely unpacked their suitcases from the shoot, now that it’s wrapped, and already there’s online scuttlebutt that the movie (due for release, of course, in October) blows a big hard one.
Rumors suggesting a test screening of the David Gordon Green film didn’t go well, with those that allegedly attended complaining about the film’s ending and the film’s determination to merely Xerox scenes from the earlier movies, were met with some understandable trepidation. And for good reason.
John Carpenter, the “Halloween” creator who executive produces (and composes) the new movie, posted this short post today :
The untitled reboot, co-written by Green and Danny McBride, sees Jamie Lee Curtis reprise her role as Laurie Strode in a scenario that the actress says goes “full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”
A couple of days back Blumhouse released the official teaser poster for the film.
