John Carpenter Might Score the New HALLOWEEN Movie That He Is a Creative Consultant On
John Carpenter is going to return to the Halloween film franchise as an executive producer and a creative consultant on the new film being developed by Miramax and Blumhouse Productions. This will be the first Halloween film that he's been a part of since Halloween III: Season of the Witch, and producer Jason Blum is trying to get the filmmaker to score the new film. He talked about Carpenter's involvement during a Facebook live interview with Fandango in which he said:
“John Carpenter is our executive producer. I also am hoping he’s going to do the music for the movie. The deal isn’t done, but I’m a good negotiator.”
I hope he's as good as he says he is because it would be pretty awesome to see Carpenter come back and score another Halloween film! The filmmaker hasn't really done much with movies recently. The last film he made was The Ward back in 2010. He's mostly been focusing on music and has released a couple of studio albums called Lost Themes and Lost Themes II.
Carpenter previously said about the film:
“38 years after the original Halloween. I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all.”
It would be so cool if this next Halloween movie did end up being the scariest of them all. That's going to be a hard feat to accomplish, though.
