Blumhouse Confirms ‘Halloween’ Sequel Is In Development

Halloween Michael MyersBlumhouse’s Jason Blum has confirmed another installment of the beloved Halloween franchise starring Jamie Lee Curtis could be on the way.

The latest Halloween sequel racked up a total of $253 million at the worldwide box office. The film served as a direct follow-up to the original film from John Carpenter — ignoring all other installments in the franchise. Scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis reprised her role as Laurie Strode as she comes face to face for what may have been her final confrontation with Michael Myers. While Laurie succeeded in surviving another horrific Halloween being hunted by the Boogeyman, the film left the fate of Michael Myers open enough to continue forward.

Speaking with CinePOP, Blum confirmed that while a sequel has yet to be greenlit, the production company is working to bring another installment to fruition:

“I’m trying, I’m trying, trying. Not official yet but I’m trying.”

Whether or not Jamie Lee Curtis will return for another outing as Laurie Strode remains a mystery, however, the actress has previously confirmed she would be up for another go against Michael Myers if Halloween director Michael Myers came back to helm another installment.

Directed by David Gordon Green from a script co-written by himself, Jeff Fradley and Danny McBride, Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton, Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, Drew Scheid, and Nick Castle. Here’s the official synopsis:

Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Haloween is now available on Digital HD, 4K UHD, Blu-Ray, and DVD. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the Halloween franchise as we learn it.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 10

Superhero Cinema 2018 Black Panther Avengers Thanos The Incredibles Aquaman2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.

Here are the theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”

      Apparently you don’t think.

    I would love for there to be a sequel to the most recent Halloween…however it needs to be considerably more suspenseful and scarier. They kind of made Jamie Lee Curtis out to be more of a ‘head-case’ than need-be. I know that this doesn’t follow the ‘chronology’ they’re trying to use but I liked her character in Halloween: H20 much better..she had more of an edge,imo.

    “Halloween director Michael Myers”…perhaps you should proof read your posts LOL

  • John Foerster

    This is the real John b easternshore thoughts of the ? First I think all the Halloween movies are def on the top list of horror flicks with lots of others and should never die off as long as they keep the true suspince,actors, and themes. Hands down was really happy to see that John carpenter had did it once agine after so many yrs. And i enjoyed the fact that they find so many different ways for Jamie lee crutis to have the role she has to keep the movie at a up beat pase to keep the world invested in a grate proffice. Hearts out to all Halloween fans and cast and crew. PS don’t for get to keep ears open for any Rob zombie up coming flick for his beast in thearters. More action for the us fan base.
