Ja! Du läste rätt. Kenny Powers-komikern från filmer som This is the End, Your Highness, Pineapple Express samt Tropic Thunder är den drivande kraften bakom den kommande re-booten av John Carpenters ikoniska skräckföljetong Halloween. Den kommande filmen Halloween (2018) är färdigskriven (manus av McBride), ska regisseras av David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Your Highness samt Eastbound & Down) och i en nygjord intervju med Yahoo Movies har Danny pratat lite om processen samt pressen att göra en riktigt bra skräckrulle som inte gör fansen besvikna.
"I'm a humongous Halloween fan, so when David and I got approached about doing this from Blumhouse [the studio behind Get Out], the first thing David and I said was, 'We'll come up with a take, but we have to pitch it to Carpenter. If he's not interested, we're definitely not into making this.' And [executive producer] Jason Blum was totally on board with that. That's exactly what he wanted to do anyway. So we came up with our pitch. We pitched to Carpenter, and he was into it, which kind of blew David and me away, but I still think nobody was really talking about Jamie. ... I think everyone was kind of on the mindset of it'd be a grab to get her, but no one really knew if we would be able to. So Dave and I just busted our ass on this script to really make that Laurie Strode character something she wouldn't be able to say no to. When we finished the script, we sent it to her, and she said she was in. So we just flipped out. We were over the moon about her involvement."
Danny pratade sedan lite mer om att de helt enkelt ignorerar alla Halloween-filmer förutom den allra första, och fortsätter efter händelserna i Carpenters läbbiga original:
"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." Länk
