Yesterday afternoon, Jason Blum set the Twitterverse ablaze by posting a picture of himself alongside Halloween 2018 star Jamie Lee Curtis; it included the tantalizing caption: “We’re discussing stuff”. Curtis is clutching a copy of the latest Laurie Strode action figure, making the assumption even more probable!
Last February, we reported that Scott Teems had been retained by Blumhouse to pen a sequel, even as Blum admitted they had yet to retain the rights. Whether a script has actually materialized is unknown at this time.

Also last February, Blum said he’d make 10 more Halloween movies, if it were an option.
If you missed Halloween in 2018, the film is now available on DVD/Blu-ray, VOD, and it’s currently airing on HBO. Give the synopsis and trailer a spin 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 2018 is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride. In addition to Curtis, the film starred Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, and Nick Castle.
