Before it even opens in theaters fans are already drooling like a dog with rabies over the new Halloween movie. Well, what we are about to say is going to say may their blow minds, Blumhouse is already planning for sequels!
Yeah, for sure, for sure, 100 percent,” Blum told EW. “Let me tell you, if we got six movies out of [Paranormal Activity] — they found new footage five times in a row! — I feel like we can figure out the next chapter. But we’ll see.”
Originally director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride had a trilogy in mind, so odds are we’ll see Michael again.
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.”
The film, which will ignore every sequel, stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer as Karen Strode, Laurie’s Daughter. Andi Matichak plays the role of Laurie’s granddaughter, Allyson.
In the movie, “A British documentary crew comes to the States to visit Michael in prison for a retrospective of the maniac’s night of terror — but their project becomes way more interesting when Myers escapes custody, retrieves his signature mask and seeks revenge on Laurie, with others naturally being part of his impressive career body count along the way.
In the decades following the fateful Halloween night that forever altered the former babysitter’s life, Laurie has armed and prepped herself for Michael’s inevitable return — to the detriment of her family, including daughter Karen and granddaughter Allyson.”
Will Patton (Armageddon), Rob Niter (The Gym), Rhian Rees (The Lears), Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s Runaways), Miles Robbins (My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound), and Drew Scheid (Stranger Things) co-star.
The film was scored by John Carpenter who serves as executive producer along with Malek Akkad, and Jason Blum. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Michael comes home on October 19, 2018.
