So it appears there we have some new info about the new Halloween film from one of the writers himself, Danny McBride. In my opinion, this news isn’t doing the hype any favors whatsoever. McBride sat down with Yahoo Sports (why Yahoo Sports? Who knows). See below to read what he had to say from Yahoo Sports…

“I’m a humongous Halloween fan, so when David and I got approached about doing this from Blumhouse [the studio behind Get Out], the first thing David and I said was, ‘We’ll come up with a take, but we have to pitch it to [franchise creator John] Carpenter. If he’s not interested, we’re definitely not into making this.’ And [executive producer] Jason Blum was totally on board with that. That’s exactly what he wanted to do anyway,” McBride says.

“So we came up with our pitch. We pitched to Carpenter, and he was into it, which kind of blew David and me away, but I still think nobody was really talking about Jamie. … I think everyone was kind of on the mindset of it’d be a grab to get her, but no one really knew if we would be able to. So Dave and I just busted our ass on this script to really make that Laurie Strode character something she wouldn’t be able to say no to. When we finished the script, we sent it to her, and she said she was in. So we just flipped out. We were over the moon about her involvement.” -Danny McBride

But wait here’s the clincher…

“We’re kind of ignoring all the films past the first one,” he says. “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.” 

What the hell is this? It was already known that this new film’s canon is ignoring Halloween 2 (another idea I’m not thrilled about) but ending the original in a “slightly different way”? The ending was classic! They better have some good ideas up there sleeves not to piss of the fanbase. Tell me, what do you think of this newfound info on the 2018 film?
