John Carpenter Returns to Produce the 10th Halloween Film

Acclaimed director, composer, and writer John Carpenter has announced that he will be back on board for the 10th installment of the Halloween franchise that he started in 1978.

Carpenter will not be directing the new film, but will be executive producing it along with Jason Blum of Blumhouse Productions, perhaps best known for the Paranormal Activity series. One of the main elements providing the chilling atmosphere of the first three Halloween movies was the soundtrack, written by Carpenter himself along with collaborator Alan Howarth. The director, who recently released two albums of music in the style of his classic soundtracks, may also be providing the music for the new film.

Further details on the new film have not been announced, but it is unlikely that the new film will be related to the previous reboots directed by Rob Zombie. “We’re probably going to go back to the original tradition that we started,” Carpenter explained. “It’s kind of gone astray. I feel like the remakes maybe went off somewhere that I didn’t want them to go.”

“Michael Myers is not a character. He is a force of nature. He is not a person. He’s part supernatural, part human. He’s like the wind, an evil wind,” the director continued. “If you start straying away from that, and you get into explaining, then you’ve lost. So hopefully we can guide it back in the original direction.”

“We can not wait to find and collaborate with the right filmmaker to give Halloween fans the movie they deserve,” said Blum.38 years after the original Halloween, I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all,” Carpenter added. The film has a tentative target date of October 2017.
