Danny McBride, co-writer on the script for 2018’s hit horror sequel Halloween announced that production on the upcoming sequel Halloween Kills begins in three weeks.
In an interview with Polygon, Danny McBride confirmed that Halloween Kills is already on the brink of principal photography, and even gives some brief details regarding the follow-up set to hit theaters a year later:
“Halloween 2 starts filming in like three weeks. That’s already off to the races. The script is almost finished for the third one. Hopefully that’ll go at the same time next year.”
Halloween Kills is the follow-up to last year’s hit film, which became a box office smash breaking numerous horror records and ended up grossing an impressive $255.5 million worldwide on a $10 million budget. Danny McBride co-wrote the script with David Gordon Green and Jeff Fradley.
Director David Gordon Green’s 2018 film jettisoned the canon of every entry in the franchise aside from John Carpenter’s original film and seemingly concluded with Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode finally vanquishing Michael Myers. Of course, few truly believed Michael Myers was gone for good and now John Carpenter has announced released dates for two sequels titled Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.
The first sequel, Halloween Kills, is set to be released on October 16, 2020, while Halloween Ends will debut the following year on October 15, 2021. Details on the sequels are currently under wraps, but Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role alongside co-stars Judy Greer and Andi Matichak. David Gordon Green will return to direct both films and will co-write the scripts with Danny McBride.
