Blumhouse and David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills is coming this year. And today, John Carpenter reveals that producer and franchise owner, Malek Akkad think’s it’s the second-best one right after the first.
Carpenter tells NME: “Well, the producer and owner of the Halloween franchise, Malek Akkad, says it’s the second-best one right after the first. So that’s from him. I think it’s a balls-out slasher movie. We haven’t had one of those in a long time.”
He adds: “It’s done. We’re just waiting on the world to be a little bit more sane and a little safer before we release it. Holy Toledo! It’s the ultimate slasher movie.
The MPAA slapped it with an R-rating via the MPAA for strong bloody violence throughout, grisly images, language, and some drug use. Sounds good to us!
Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Karen Nelson, Andi Matichak as Allyson Nelson, Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Dylan Arnold as Cameron Elam, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Charles Cyphers as Leigh Brackett, Nancy Stephens as Marion Chambers, and James Jude Courtney / Nick Castle as Michael Myers.
Gordon Green directs Halloween Kills and Blum produces. Green wrote the script with Danny McBride and Scott Teems. Carpenter provides the score. It hits on October 15, 2021, with Halloween Ends following on October 14, 2022.
