Blumhouse’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.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best
2018 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.
