Danny McBride says new Halloween will homage/respect the Halloween sequels

Blumhouse's sequel to John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN will be upon us before we know it and today we have awesome news as it looks like, even though the new HALLOWEEN will be picking up right after the ending of Carpenter's original 1978 film, the new movie will be "paying homage and respect to the Halloween sequels."

This news comes to us via co-writer Danny McBride who recently sat down with Flickering Myth to talk about the upcoming film. You can read his killer comments below and then begin to speculate just how the other films will be referenced throughout Blumhouse's HALLOWEEN sequel.

Danny McBride:

The Halloween franchise has kind of become a little bit of like choose your own adventure, you know like there are some many different versions, and the timeline is so mixed up, we just thought it would be easier to go back to the source and continue from there. It was nicer than knowing you’re working on Halloween 11, it just seemed cooler, ‘we’re making Halloween 2‘. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there.
