Haha@JC walking in the meeting with a bag of popcorn. I'm sure Carpenter is in it for the paycheck, but his involvement in any kind of motion picture will spike my interest. This is probably the best thing to happen to the franchise other than it being put to bed, but I highly doubt this is going to be some return to form, slasher masterpiece that we've all been waiting for. As exciting as this seems, Carpenter's time on this Earth is limited, and I'd rather he put his efforts and ideas into something new. Ah well, more power to him...at least we can hope this film will wash away the bad taste of Zombie's two wretched Halloween outputs.
