Universal just announced that in October 2020 and October 2021, the studio will release two more entries in the slasher franchise, titled "Halloween Kills" and "Halloween Ends", respectively. Check out the announcement trailer in the player below.
What we do know, according to the press release, is that David Gordon Green will return to direct both films. Still, since they are planning two sequels back to back, hopefully, this means they have a uniform story in mind for the characters.
HALLOWEEN ENDS will be released on Friday, October 15, 2021. John Carpenter will also be returning as an executive producer. The efforts to put the band back together that made Halloween 2018 more than an anomaly is to be applauded and this trio obviously feel as if there are more stories to tell about everyone's favorite boogeyman, Michael Myers.
On top of all that, producer Jason Blum confirmed the bulk of the team of 2018's Halloween is coming back.
Ryan Turek is overseeing both projects for Blumhouse.
Green's reboot grossed over $159 million domestically and slashed over $255 million at the worldwide box office, an impressive return from an estimate $10 million budget.
But hey, its Halloween....its Michael...and after seeing what Busta Rhymes brought to the table.... That film found Strode as a reclusive grandmother still traumatised by her encounters with the killer and praying every night to get one more chance to dispatch Myers. The film also starred Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Will Patton and Virginia Gardner.
