When 2018’s Halloween became the highest grossing slasher movie of all time and pleased the majority of franchise fans, a sequel seemed inevitable. We know that Blumhouse mastermind Jason Blum has been making maneuvers in an effort to see it happen, and even got word that a writer has been retained for Halloween 2. There’s only one problem:
“We don’t have deal rights to the sequels.”
Still, Blum is optimistic, telling Moviefone he hopes to make ten more Halloween movies!
“Well, we had talked about it but right now we’re not shooting any Halloween movies right now. But I certainly hope to make 10 more but I’ll start with one more.”

We certainly admire Blum’s enthusiasm, though his inability to nail down the production rights is getting slightly worrisome. What’s next for The Shape? Only time will tell.
If you missed Halloween 2018 when it was in theaters, it’s now available to stream and/or own on Blu-ray/DVD. Check out the synopsis and trailer below.
It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. — but this time, she’s ready for him.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-scribed with Danny McBride; the film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
