"Halloween needs to return to its traditions. I feel like the movies have gotten away from that....Michael is not just a human being; he's a force of nature, like the wind. That's what makes him so scary. We made the original Halloween for very little money. At its heart, it's just a good, scary story, and that's why it works. 38 years later, I'm going to help to try to make the tenth sequel the scariest of them all."
As for the man behind the camera this time around, Bloody Disgusting is floating around two names as possibilities. On Tuesday, the horror news website reported that Mike Flanagan, director of Oculus, Hush, and the upcoming Ouija 2, is in talks with Blumhouse Productions to helm the picture. Later in the day, the site updated their story, saying that there's reason to believe that You're Next and The Guest director Adam Wingard could take on the film. No real sources on that one, but he did tweet some stuff, I guess. Either director would be a good pick for horror fans, but I'm just excited that we're getting a genuine Halloween film again. I like the horror renaissance that is happening in Hollywood right now, and a new Halloween film that goes back to the franchise roots seems like a perfect move. And with Carpenter involved? Count me in already.
