We’re still a year away from the Halloween reboot currently in the works at Blumhouse; the film is being helmed by David Gordon Green with his writing collaborator Danny McBride, but original Halloween director John Carpenter let some interesting details slip in a recent interview with Stereo Gum. We’ve been told that Halloween 2018 would be something of a reboot, something of a sequel; now, we have clarification, and it seems we’re in store for something completely new.
John Carpenter: “It’s kind of a… I don’t know how to describe it. It’s almost an alternative reality. It picks up after the first one and it pretends that none of the other [sequels] were made. It’s gonna be fun. There’s a really talented director and it was well-written. I’m impressed.”

It’ll be months before we have a trailer, but here’s the synopsis we’ve been given:
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who 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.
Stay tuned for additional Halloween 2018 news as details emerge.
