It’s only been about a month since filming wrapped on Blumhouse’s Halloween reboot, slated to hit US Theaters on October 19th (just in time to coincide with 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s original); still, everything is moving full-steam ahead with focus and fury! Jason Blum revealed he’s seen a rough-cut and couldn’t be happier.
The maverick indie producer dished with Digital Spy:
“I feel really good about it, I saw a cut of it two nights ago. I think David did a terrific job. He did everything I hoped he would do which is respect the DNA of the franchise and bring something totally new to it and we’re really very very excited for people to see it.
“The most fun I had with him is I brought him to the set, and I was on the set with him and Jamie Lee Curtis, and boy that was pretty special, pretty amazing. It was a proper reunion.”
