As we all know far too well by this point in time, Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills has been delayed a full year and will now be released on October 15, 2021.
But today, franchise star and scream queen supreme, Jamie Lee Curtis took to Twitter to let us all know it will be worth the wait.
Check out her post below.
Gordon Green and John Carpenter penned an announcement letter yesterday, writing: “We write this heartbroken over the fact that the delay of our film is even a discussion, but if there’s one thing that a career in the film industry has prepared us for, it is the unexpected. Over the past few weeks, our film family has looked at the forecast of theatrical exhibition with obvious concern….If we release it in October of this year as planned, we have to face the reality that the film would be consumed in a compromised theatrical experience. After weighing our options, we have chosen to push the film’s theatrical release by one year.”

Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems. It stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, with James Jude Courtney also playing Myers. Anthony Michael Hall, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Kyle Richards, Charles Cyphers, and Nancy Stephens reprise their roles from the earlier films. The film is produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions banner, alongside Malek Akkad and Bill Block.
