I know what you mean! I totally agree! John didn't even want to write "Halloween II." In all reality John wanted "Season Of The Witch" to be "Halloween II." John wanted to do a different "Halloween" plot for each new installment. But nope! They put a gun to John's head and made him do the sequel. "Witch" I do enjoy but I will never forget reading that John had to drink a six pack of beer and smoke a pack of cigarettes every night to get through the screenplay.
I just heard a rumor that John might do the soundtrack for the next "Halloween" that he wrote. Apparently John was also not to thrilled about all of those lame ass sequels so he is taking his franchise back to do one more masterpiece. I HOPE!!
I just read that the next Halloween will be released October 2018. It'll be a direct sequel to Halloween 2 and written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. Green will direct. They're not exactly my first thoughts when I think of horror film writers or directors. Carpenter is supposed to executive produce and act as creative consultant.
Yes! You are correct! The new Halloween will be out on October 31st 2018.
I asked John last year when I met him if he had one more horror movie in him.
He turned to me and said...
"Yes I do!" Then he signed my "Halloween" album in silver sharpie. I almost shit myself.
I met the master. He was a lot nicer than Neil. LOL
I read that John wrote the sequel and is producing. He is just not directing or doing the score.
This makes me sad, but I will take it.
I live for this shite.
I don't understand how John will help produce a script about a burned up and burnt out literally Michael Myers.
That would be really stupid.
A charred, burned Michael chasing babysitters and slitting their throats with a sharp kitchen knife.
Tell me more.
Well from what I've read he's NOT doing any writing for this untitled Halloween flick. Just producing. And who knows how much involvement that truly means?
Think about this:
This century he's written only ONE movie, "Ghost of Mars" back in '01. ONE! And it bombed big time. In the last 28 years it only goes up to TWO film writing credits!
Holy Shit Johnny! This is crazy!!! I do love the "Ghost Of Mars" soundtrack but the movie sucks. Even Ice Cube said it was the worst movie he was ever in!
Wow! I know Debra Hill was his right hand woman but I thought John wrote or at least co-wrote most of his films.
I'm watching "Village Of The Damned." Yes I know another remake but I love it.
Well, at least John has a great eye for the camera and a good ear for soundtracks.
I forgot that Buckethead and Anthrax did a track on "Ghost Of Mars."
So John is just the overseer on this next film. Lame.
I am sad.
By the way I saw this web by the inside of my door area so I sprayed some Windex on the area and used a paper tower to get rid of the web.
A fuckking black widow scared out of it's wits raced into the towel.
I transformed the paper towel into a ball and carried it to the garbage pail.
As I released the paper towel into the garbage the black widow literally flew into the air and landed into the plastic bag.
I quickly tied the kitchen liner closed and ran outside and threw it into the garbage outside.
I am freaked the fukk out right now man.
My heart is racing faster than a Neil Peart cigarette hit on a cool night on the Santa Monica Pier.
I have Black Widow Phobia and I accidentally carried one in my hands in a paper towel.
I could have a stroke and die.
I am sure some of you who read this would be happy.
He's directed two movies this century (Ghosts of Mars + The Ward) and produced two (Vampires: Los Muertos + The Fog).
I am a whore. I liked "The Ward." I also liked his two shorts he did for Masters Of Horror.
I thought he directed and wrote "Dark Star" which I am not a fan off.
I thought he directed "Assault" and wrote it.
Glad I have been duped for 40 years.
And now RUSH IS DEAD too.
He wasn't even 30 when he made Assault and the first Halloween. That's pretty impressive to have two classics to your name at such a young age. AND the crazy the fact that he did everything for it: writing, directing, producing, composing...hell, he even crammed in a little acting role for himself in those too.
