Reboot? Sequel? Rebooted sequel? It's not that simple, according to Halloween producer Jason Blum, who is also the founder and CEO of Blumhouse Productions. The new film, coming later this year on October 19th, may be hitting a reset switch for the franchise after a Rob Zombie-led remake and sequel, but the production company wants to steer clear of calling it a reboot. In an interview with Variety covering both The First Purge as well as the new Halloween film, Blum opened up on how they approached this project and what they were doing to make it stand out.[blockquote-0]
The major goal here was to bring a mix of new and old voices to the series to produce something truly scary once again, which is in itself taking the franchise back to its roots. They brought some fresh perspective to a series dating back to 1978 while at the same time honoring the history of it, at least as far as the approach of producing it went. As for how the film itself is, fans will have to wait and see, but Blum is hopeful that movie-goers will be pleased.[blockquote-1]
Only time will tell if the film will live up to these expectations, but it's our opinion that this project has been in good hands since the beginning. Once again, Halloween will hit theaters on October 19th.
