Jason Blum has seen a cut of the new Halloween reboot, and proclaimed it a success. Blum isn’t exactly an impartial witness here, since he’s producing the film, but we’ll take any Halloween info we can get at this point.

Halloween Set Photo

Technically, production on the new Halloween movie has been underway for a couple weeks now, but today is the first official day of shooting on the sequel, which is bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis in her famed role as Laurie Strode, the sister of the seemingly immortal slasher Michael Myers. We know principal photography began today because Curtis took the time to post a set photo to Twitter with director and co-writer David Gordon Green, and it features a certain memento from the original Halloween production back in 1978.

Check out the Halloween set photo below to see what we’re talking about. Read More »

Seth Rogen as Walter Cronkite

Seth Rogen joining a David Gordon Green movie is not surprising news – they previously collaborated on the very funny stoner comedy Pineapple Express. David Gordon Green making a movie about legendary newsman Walter Cronkite and CBS News on the day of John F. Kennedy’s assassination is not surprising news – he is a versatile filmmaker who has floated between genres with ease. What is surprising news is that this film, titled Newsflash, will see Green directing Seth Rogen as Walter Cronkite. There’s no getting around it: that’s just downright wacky casting.

Halloween 2018

It’s been years since fans of horror maestro John Carpenter‘s Halloween franchise have been truly thrilled with a new entry in the series, and now we know they’ll only have to wait one more year to see if that streak is broken.

Producer Jason Blum, the CEO of the budget-conscious and incredibly successful Blumhouse Productions (Get OutParanormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge) has promised that their planned Halloween sequel – the one written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green and directed by Green – will definitely be released by its planned date in October of 2018. And additionally, there’s word that Carpenter himself is still interested in providing the score. That’s music to my ears.

Stronger trailer

Peter Berg’s Patriots Day earned solid reviews when it hit theaters last year, but the way that movie invented a single character who appeared at all of the major turning points of the 2013 Boston bombing struck me as disingenuous.

Now, director David Gordon Green is here with Stronger, a film that tells the true story of one of the bombing’s survivors, Jeff Bauman, played here by Jake Gyllenhaal. To me, this looks like a much better way of approaching the topic, and it looks like an emotional, inspiring story about overcoming adversity and personifying the term “Boston Strong.” Check out the first Stronger trailer below.

Halloween Reboot

Starring in an Alien movie, co-writing a Halloween film, and a second season of Vice Principals on the way, it’s a good time to be a Danny McBride fan. McBride and David Gordon Green, who directed most of season 2 of Vice Principals, are working on getting Michael Meyers back in theaters next October.

According to McBride, the man in the iconic mask will no longer be some unkillable entity. Below, McBride discusses the new Halloween reboot and going back to the simplicity of John Carpenter‘s classic.

A resurgence of the Halloween franchise has been expected for years now. The reboot franchise from Rob Zombie died off, but recently there was talk of the horror series coming back at Blumhouse Productions with the original film’s director John Carpenter executive producing. Oculus director Mike Flanagan was rumored to be at the helm, but that changed this past week.

Surprising news surfaced just a few days ago that Eastbound & Down collaborators David Gordon Green and Danny McBride were teaming up to write a new Halloween sequel with the former handling directing duties. Some fans were exciting about this prospect while others were perplexed, but all of them seem to at least be interested in how this new Halloween installment will pan out. Thankfully, Danny McBride just gave us some idea of how they’re approaching the movie, and that includes ignoring all all of the franchise’s sequels. Read More »
