Co-writer Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Returns is the talk of the horror world lately.
Danny McBride talked to Yahoo in a interview and said the new film will take place in an alternate Halloween reality where the ending of the original is changed slightly.
Read more highlights from the interview below:
We’re kind of ignoring all the films past the first one. It picks up after the first one, but it’s sort of an alternate reality. It’s as if the first Halloween ended in a slightly different way.
How scary will this be:
I think you should be very scared. I mean, this isn’t a comedy at all. I think there was, like, maybe one joke on the page, but the rest is straight horror. So hopefully it gets in people’s heads and keeps them up late at night.
Danny McBride on Jamie Lee Curtis:
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.
Pressure on making HALLOWEEN:
I just hope that we don’t fuck 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.
