Warning: this article contains spoilers for the new Halloween.
Halloween director David Gordon Green has revealed one of his ideas for a potential successor to the new Halloween which serves as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original classic from 1978.
Halloween managed to break several box office records in its debut including the second highest-grossing October opening with $76 million at the domestic box office, as well as the biggest horror movie opening featuring a female lead. While a sequel to the new film has yet to be greenlit, the film’s director has already commented on one possible character who could return for another installment to the franchise.
During the new film’s second act, the boyfriend of Andi Matichak’s Allyson disappears from the film after he’s caught cheating at the school’s Halloween dance. Cameron, played Dylan Arnold, tries to pass being kissed by another girl off as if it wasn’t what it looked like and grows increasingly frustrated before he swipes Allyson’s ringing phone from her and throws it in a bowl of dip. Speaking with Collider, Green was asked why Cameron was chosen to be spared by Michael Myers when he revealed we may not have seen the last of him, as well as how his character connects to Carpenter’s original film:
DAVID GORDON GREEN: Yeah. There’s some ideas for him for later.
Okay, that’s interesting.
GREEN: But do you see the allusion to him and who he his? We refer to his father being Lonnie who was the young kid from the original film. There’s ideas for him. There was more stuff of him and we decided to hold back and see what we could use later.
Lonnie was a minor character who briefly appeared in the original film as one of the middle schoolers who was bullying Tommy, the young boy Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) was babysitting for who also witnessed the Boogeyman’s terror first hand on Halloween night in 1978.
In addition, Green also teased the possibility that Michael Myers is still alive. The director was asked about the film’s finale which made a point to not show the Shape burning in our final glimpse at the panic room:
The other thing I was wondering about is the very end of the movie and if that stayed consistent throughout. Was Michael always meant to perish in a fire in that trap?
GREEN: Does he perish?
GREEN: I sure hope not.
That’s my follow-up! Did you ever have a scene in mind where Laurie, given everything she’s been through, would want to go back and search through the ashes?
GREEN: That sounds like a good sequel idea. You never know.
But what do you think? Would you like to see a sequel to the new Halloween? Do you hope to see Cameron make a return? Let us know in the comments below.
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.
Halloween is now playing.
