Now, we’re not going to say we had a feeling the film needed some retooling—and we certainly aren’t going to talk about a test screening that executive producer John Carpenter said never happened, but we’re getting news that Halloween, slated for release on October 19th, has gone back for some reshoots. Tightening up those nuts and bolts can’t be a bad thing!
Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive:
Bloody Disgusting has learned that [David Gordon] Green is getting back behind the camera to shoot additional scenes for his Halloween, which slashes into theaters this coming October. Sources tell me that the agenda is to tweak the finale following a recent test screening (without getting into it, yes, it took place).
There’s literally no reason to panic as most films, especially Blumhouse productions, end up back behind the camera. It’s a normal part of the process. If anything, maybe we’ll get some awesome extra features on the home video release?

So there you have it, folks! And while the pessimist in me in preparing for disappointment, this really is a normal part of the process.
Now, where’s that damn trailer?
Official Synopsis: Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green who co-wrote the script with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride. Besides Curtis and Castle, other cast members include James Jude Courtney, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
Look for Halloween to hit US Theaters on October 19th.
