Danny McBride says new Halloween movie will be 'grounded in reality'

Danny McBride can already claim to be part of one legendary horror film series thanks to his role of spaceship pilot Tennessee in Ridley Scott’s upcoming Alien: Covenant (out May 19). Next, the Eastbound & Down star is rebooting another terror franchise in the William Shatner mask-shaped form of a new Halloween film, which he is cowriting with director David Gordon Green (All the Real Girls, Your Highness).

“David Green is one of my oldest friends,” McBride told EW Radio‘s Entertainment Weirdly show. “He was my neighbor in my freshman year at college. We’ve just always been buddies, we’ve always worked together, and we have a company together. He gave me a call one day and said he had been approached to direct another installment of Halloween. We’re having a blast with it. We just love that original Halloween. There’s something so scary about how simple it was. I had seen all the Halloween films. We really were studying all the sequels and stuff, just to see where it exactly it went wrong. It definitely kind of felt that, as the series went on, Michael Myers became like Frankenstein and he was like indestructible and I think the more indestructible he was, the less scary he became. And so David and I, our ambition is to strip it down and get it back to [being] grounded in reality, which I think makes it scarier.”

The movie guy that they have ON THE RADIO show I listen to says it's projected to beat Venom's recent record-breaking opening weekend.

They were wrong.
Venom - 80m
Halloween - 77.5m

This movie did a great job mixing throwbacks in, but never letting them feel cheap or lazy.
Like when Michael looks away from Laurie's body and then he looks back and she's gone
Laurie poking out from the shadows (the Shape in the first one)
knife kill on the wall and the sheet ghost. The one shot take was really well done. Even added the opening scene from II.

I'm usually good at not picking apart details of movies and simply just enjoy them for what they are but two parts made me angry.

1. When the daughter was in the back of the police car then escaped when Michael escaped, instead of simply getting in the driver seat and driving away while he was killing the doctor guy, she ran into the woods, yelling and screaming.

2. When they were in the basement at the end of the movie, they shot Michael and he was on the ground. Instead of grabbing one of the 10 rifles feet away from you while Michael was on the ground (or simply cocking the gun and shooting him again with the weapon in your hands), they ran upstairs and set off their stupid natural gas trap that he clearly lived through. Just kill him! They obviously need to keep a small chance of him living so they can continue making these movies for another 40 years.

Those are both lame Corey. If you are holding a loaded gun unload it into him
