A while back it was suggested that Adam Wingard or Mike Flanagan would be at the helm of Blumhouse’s new Halloween film, but when speaking in a recent interview Jason Blum suggests this is no longer the case.
“We haven’t landed on a filmmaker, and we haven’t landed on an approach. We thought we had a filmmaker and an approach, and we don’t. We’re talking to a handful of people about it — all of them have different ideas. I don’t believe in coming up with an idea and telling a filmmaker what to do. So we have three to five different people we’re talking with, and all of them have a different idea about what it should be. And we haven’t landed on a group, and as a result we haven’t landed on an idea.”
Everything is at a bit of a stand-still until an idea and a director are chosen, so it may be a little while before we get specific details about what Michael Myers will be up to for Halloween. There has been no update on whether John Carpenter is still on-board to do the score, but he is still sitting firmly in the executive producer’s seat and that’s something.
