Here is David Gordon Green's statements from Collider:
“It’s just a continuation of it. It’s telling the story, moving forward,” Green said. “It’s not another reinvention or anything like that. It’s this world that we’ve established, and then it continues beyond the events of the first one.”
“I think, ultimately, Michael Myers is such an iconic character that no one besides Carpenter is ever gonna have ownership over him. This will be our chance at the table to play with these characters, and I’m sure that, when we’re done, other people will come in and do the same thing, or have their own reinvention. Michael Myers is iconic enough to allow that, too. He’s like James Bond, where you can have different actors and different filmmakers. He represents something so simple and scary that he can be translated by lots of different people.”
So, in the meantime, you can check out a past interview I did with the author of the Halloween sequel/reboot Mr. John Passarella here. Hopefully, John Passarella will be involve in book adaptation of both films.
