The latest details we got for the upcoming Halloween reboot, in the works at Blumhouse, are both extremely interesting and genuinely perplexing. We’ve already been warned that Halloween 2018 will disregard every sequel to John Carpenter’s original Halloween, released in 1978, but it may go even farther than that.

In a recent interview with Yahoo, Halloween 2018 co-scribe Danny McBride revealed that they will even be changing aspects of the very first film in the franchise, meaning fans need to brace themselves for some major retroactive continuity.
McBride: “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.
“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.”
Here’s what we know about Halloween 2018 so far:
“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
The film is being directed by David Gordon Green and will star Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and Judy Greer as her daughter. We’ll keep out ears to the ground in order to bring you additional Halloween 2018 news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
