Halloween Ends Director Nearly Left Horror Genre After Michael Myers Reboot

Halloween ends director David Gordon Green, claims he was almost ready to step away from the horror genre before being offered the new version the exorcist Restart. A filmmaker with an eclectic career, Green has worked on both dramatic works, such as the adaptation of Stewart O’Nan’s 2007 novel snow angels, along with less serious dishes like 2008’s Pineapple Express with Seth Rogan. In 2017, Green was tapped to co-write and direct for a new Halloween project for Blumhouse Productions, which would eventually become a new trilogy of films that served as direct sequels to the 1978 film, but retroactively ignored all other sequels. The final installment in Green’s trilogy, Halloween endswas released in theaters and via streaming on Peacock last week.


In 2020, Blumhouse and Morgan Creek announced that once Green had finished his duties on… Halloween ends he would reboot from the exorcist, based on the bestseller by William Peter Blatty. Like his approach to the Halloween franchise, Green is poised to create a new trilogy that also serves as a direct sequel to the original 1973 film, ignoring all other sequels and prequels. Original star Ellen Burstyn, who played the mother of Linda Blair’s possessed Regan MacNeil, will also reprise her role in the upcoming films.

Speak with THR from the back of Halloween ends’ Recent release, Green admitted he considered moving into other genres before Blumhouse’s Jason Blum offered him the chance to take the helm. the exorcist. say it’s “was just time to move on,he got to see what he claimed to bethe perfect home and the perfect idea.Check out his full comments below:

That is the truth. I was really going to say, “I’m going to interrupt horror,” as much as I love the genre. It was just time to move on until the perfect property and the perfect idea emerged at the same time. So we are developing The exorcist, and Ellen Burstyn, along with a great cast, is coming together for that, with a script that I’m really excited about. Technically, it’s an extraordinarily different movie than Halloween. I think it’s in the horror subgenre, but dramatically I approach it very academically.

Can the exorcist learn from Halloween’s mistakes?

While Green is the first Halloween film was showered with rave reviews and the film was praised for staying true to the spirit of John Carpenter’s 1978 classic, the sequel Halloween kills saw a rapid decline in critical reception. Meanwhile, the recently released Halloween ends also receives mixed reviews. While it’s been hailed as an improvement over its predecessor, many critics have also objected to what they believe to be a lackluster conclusion to the trilogy. If Groen hopes to do better with the exorcist trilogy, he will hopefully apply the lessons he learned from working with Michael Myers.

Naturally, the exorcist is a very different kind of property than Halloween’s slasher horror, and perhaps Green’s previous experience in making dramatic films will translate well into supernatural horror. As the first of Green Halloween film proves that he already knows well what it takes to revive a beloved franchise, he just needs to make sure he avoids a second film drop. Undoubtedly fans of the exorcist will hope that Green takes what he has learned from his time working on the ? Halloween franchise and makes a much more consistent trilogy of films.
