John Carpenter has been involved in every big aspect of new Halloween

It was just last week that we heard director David Gordon Green's thoughts on his new HALLOWEEN movie, and today we have producers Jason's Blum comments on the film.

Blum recently spoke to Shock Til You Drop and let them know that original HALLOWEEN writer-director John Carpenter has been involved in the process the entire time.

Jason Blum on John Carpenter:

We don’t take any big steps without his approval, so for instance hiring David and Danny [McBride] he approved. He approved their pitch, he approved their first script. He approved bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis. So anytime we make a big creative turn he’s involved with that and we don’t do it without his blessing.

We went to him and asked him to be involved. There was no contractual, financial or any other obligation to have him on this movie. We went back and asked him to join us again.

How excited are you for the return of HALLOWEEN to the big screen? Let us know by hitting us up in the new comments section below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!
