Thank God! In an interview with Cinema Blend Danny McBride had the following to say when asked about the new Halloween film.
You know, it’s not a remake. It’s actually, it’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.
McBride also promised a no-laughs, return to form horror flick:
Green and I are definitely going to [do] a straight-up horror. Halloween has always been one of my favorite movies of all time. There’s a simplicity and an efficiency to that first one that I think allows the movies just to be scary as hell. And so Green and I, our approach is to get back to that.
With that said I am now more anxious then ever to see this one.
