We have been hit with tons of news regarding Blumhouse’s new Halloween film including full coverage of our set-visits – which you can check out in links below. But is it already time to speak about the new film’s possible sequel?
Sure, why not.
And speaking of which, co-writer Danny McBride spoke about just that with EW recently. He even goes on to say that the original plan was to pitch Blumhouse on TWO films.
“We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back,” McBride said. “Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So, we were like, Let’s learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn’t. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully, we get a chance to do it.”
Do you think McBride and Green’s Halloween will be good enough to warrant a sequel? Let’s hope so, right? I guess we’ll find out the weekend after this first film opens…
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.
The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
