After witnessing the latest chapter from the Michael Myers saga, there is one question on everyone’s mind: will there be a sequel to 2018’s Halloween? Danny McBride recently sat down with Deadline to discuss the possibility of a follow-up film.
The new Halloween film has definitely resurrected this classic franchise and once the credits began to roll, fans everywhere began to speculate if there would be another chapter to unfold in The Shape’s long-running story. Now it seems some light has been shed on the subject. The film’s director David Gordon Green and producer Jason Blum have all expressed interest in a sequel. And co-writer Danny McBride revealed his thoughts on doing another film in an interview with Deadline.
“We definitely have ideas of what we would do. I think we did not allow ourselves to really indulge those ideas until the movie came out. We just wanted to put all our hopes and dreams in having this film stick the landing. But we do have thoughts and ideas of what we could possibly do. We hadn’t invested a ton of time on them, but now we’re being asked to figure it out. There are definitely talks on whether we will do more of them and we’re just trying to see what best makes sense.”
So the idea of another Halloween film is not completely off the table and the powers that be are attempting to figure out the best approach. It is safe to say that a Halloween sequel is a no-brainer with the box office returns the film received. But it is refreshing to know the people behind the franchise aren’t rushing into it. Fans will have to keep their fingers crossed for the return of Michael Myers, again.
