Danny McBride Confirms 'Halloween' Reboot and Alternate Timeline | Def Pen
The horror classic ‘Halloween’ will return in 2018 and co-writer Danny McBride says it comes with an alternative timeline.

The infamous white-masked killer and a character who has haunted my dreams for years; Mike Myers, will be back to the big screen in 2018 in a reboot of the classic ‘Halloween’. Directed by David Gordon Green and scored by the original directer John Carpenter, the reboot of ‘Halloween’ will be looking to change-up the story a little bit, according to writer Danny McBride. The talented actor and writer McBride, in an interview with Yahoo movies, touched on the differences and his take on the story of Mike Myers:

“We’re kind of ignoring all the films past the first one, It picks up after the first one, but it’s sort of an alternate reality. It’s as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way.”

“We are diehard fans of Halloween. We’re watching all the sequels and where things have taken left turns here and there that maybe bites for fans, and at least trying to deliver what we would have wanted to see… I think you should be very scared. I mean, this isn’t a comedy at all… So hopefully it gets in people’s heads and keeps them up late at night”. 

This is a Blumhouse production and they’ve been on a roll with horrors over the past decade and especially this year, with the release of scary flick’s like ‘Get Out’ and ‘Split’, so rest assured we will be getting a good movie. Fans of the horror cult classic won’t be able to wait for the 2018 release date, but I can. I can wait a very, very long time until this movie comes out, simply because I’m not looking to lose sleep from nightmares anytime soon.
