Blumhouse Halloween will change original film's ending

Like everyone else out there I'm am excited as hell to check out co-writer Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green's HALLOWEEN remake.

News on the Blumhouse HALLOWEEN has been (kinda) silent over the past few weeks, but today we have a whole bunch of new info on the film via Danny McBride.

McBride recently sat down with Yahoo! and talked all about the new film - without giving away anything like plot or spoilers. That said, he did say the new film will take place in an alternate Halloween reality where the ending of the original is changed slightly.

You can read all of McBride's new thoughts on the film below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are for Blumhouse's Halloween in the comments or on social media!

McBride on HALLOWEEN's alternate reality:

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.

McBride on how scary the new HALLOWEEN will be: 

I think you should be very scared. I mean, this isn’t a comedy at all. I think there was, like, maybe one joke on the page, but the rest is straight horror. So hopefully it gets in people’s heads and keeps them up late at night.

Danny McBride on Jamie Lee Curtis:

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.

McBride on the pressures of making HALLOWEEN:

I just hope that we don’t f*** it up and piss people off. This is such a diehard fan base. You don’t want horror fans being your enemies because they show up at your house with masks on. 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. Hopefully, that will line up with most fans.

Blumhouse's HALLOWEEN hits theaters October 19, 2018.
