Halloween Ends

The third in the “Halloween” revival series will feature a time jump, according to director David Gordon Green.

While “Halloween Kills”, opening next week in the U.S, picks up directly after the events of 2018’s “Halloween”, the next will “take a beat” before resuming the story. [More…]


Face/Off 2

Simon Barrett, writer of the upcoming “Face/Off” sequel, says its been quite a task putting pen to paper on a follow-up to the classic John Woo actioner. While speaking to ComicBook Movie, Barrett said he and director Adam Wingard the project is quickly moving ahead.

We have a script, we are rewriting our script, and I think we are really excited about the direction we’re taking the rewrite. But we’ve got Neil Moritz and Paramount behind us and, so far, they keep giving us somewhat befuddled, but genuinely enthusiastic thumbs up, every step of the way.  I want to say something that people haven’t mentioned yet. It took Adam and I two years to pitch Face/Off 2, because our pitch was so confusing, that [the studio] just kept saying, ‘We think we like what you’re saying, but can you just explain who’s got whose face on in this scene?’ Ultimately, it was only when they actually paid us to write a 35-page treatment that I think everyone really understood what we were proposing. There’s a lot of enthusiasm at the studio level, which I’m not used to. I think that has a little bit to do with my friend Adam’s recent monster movie’s [Godzilla vs. Kong] success in theaters this year. But you never know, you never know.”

Barrett reiterated that the new film will follow the adventures of John Travolta and Nicolas Cage’s characters from the 1997 film. [More…]
