In addition to being a major part of the executive production staff, Blumhouse Productions founder Jason Blum has confirmed that John Carpenter will provide the score for the new Halloween film. He has scored Halloween, Halloween II and Halloween 4. For those who are fan of the original 1978 horror classic, you know how big of a deal this is, and how much that score stuck with you throughout the years!
When asked by a fan on Twitter if Carpenter would be providing the score for the October 19th installment, Blum responded with: “Confirm!”
Carpenter first brought up the possibility of doing the film’s score when the movie was first announced back in February 2017 in an interview with EW:
“David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and…WOW. They get it. I think you’re gonna dig it. They blew me away. I might even do the music. Maybe. It could be kind of cool.”
This new Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green, who wrote the film alongside Danny McBride and Jeff Fradley. Jamie Lee Curtis has reprised the role she originally took on 40 years ago, Laurie Strode. Judy Greer will star as Laurie’s daughter, and Andi Matichak stars as Laurie’s granddaughter.
Halloween will sneak into theaters on October 19th, 2018.
