The first Halloween movie introduced the world to the villainous Myers in 1978.

Carpenter directed the film, and was involved in multiple sequels as a writer and composer.

Trancas International, Miramax and Blumhouse will release the new movie, rumoured for a 2017 release date, with Malek Akkad and Jason Blum also on board to produce.
