Is Adam Wingard Also in Talks for ‘Halloween’?!



This morning we told you that Oculus, Hush and Ouija 2 director Mike Flanagan was in talks to continue his relationship with Blumhouse by directing the next installment of Halloween, which brings John Carpenter back to the franchise as executive producer.

Another huge name could be in the mix.

Adam Wingard went on a tweet storm (see below), fueling speculation that he’s also in contention for the dream gig that would send him to Haddonfield to resurrect Michael Myers. Obviously, there’s no confirmation as of this writing, just speculation.

Wingard is a huge fan of the Halloween franchise, which helped inspire You’re Next and its score. After directing A Horrible Way to Die, and the first two V/H/S films for Bloody Disgusting, he’s been on a complete tear having helmed You’re Next, The Guest as well as the upcoming The Woods for Lionsgate, and “Outcast” for Cinemax and “The Walking Dead” creator Robert Kirkman. He’s also set to begin production on Death Note for Netflix this summer.

Both directors are exciting choices, and no matter who ends up behind the camera we’re going to be in for a massive Halloween treat come 2017.
