Anticipation for Blumhouse’s upcoming horror sequel Halloween is continuing to build as the release date nears. Audiences are excited to reunite with Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) 40 years after her iconic turn in John Carpenter’s Halloween where she faced Michael Myers for the first time. Although this new sequel will ignore all the other sequels that came before it, people are excited nonetheless and the buzz is so high, that another sequel is reportedly in the works already.
According to Bloody Disgusting, an unknown writer is currently developing the script for the next Halloween film. The report also claims that Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are not likely to be involved with this new entry in the franchise.
The report also makes an exciting speculation over the idea that Blumhouse can potentially fast track this follow-up to what is looking to be a massive hit on their hands for October 2019. It’s worth noting that this is still speculation on its part, but with the positive reactions from early screenings and heavy anticipation from audiences, the prospect of another film featuring Michael Myers coming sooner rather than later is pretty intriguing.
