New 'Halloween' Film in the Works with John Carpenter, Jason Blum

Writer-director John Carpenter will return to "Halloween" for the franchise's tenth installment. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carpenter will executive produce the film, while Jason Blum produces through his Blumhouse banner.

“Thirty-eight years after the original 'Halloween,' I’m going to help to try to make the 10th sequel the scariest of them all,” Carpenter said in a statement.

“'Halloween' is one of those milestone films that inspired everyone at our company to get into the world of scary movies. The great Malek Akkad and John Carpenter have a special place in the hearts of all genre fans, and we are so excited that Miramax brought us together," Blum shared.

Malek Akkad, who worked on 2007's "Halloween," is also attached to produce for Trancas. David Thwaites will oversee for Miramax, which is co-financing the film with Blumhouse and holds worldwide distribution rights.

Carpenter created the original "Halloween" film in 1978, before working on other classic horror films like "The Thing" and "Village of the Damned." Blum's past credits include "Insidious," "Paranormal Activity" and "The Purge: Election Year."
