David Gordon Green and Danny McBride Hoping to Make ‘Halloween’ Sequel



David Gordon Green and Danny McBride Hoping to Make 'Halloween' Sequel

We’re just four months away from Blumhouse and Universal’s Halloween sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror masterpiece, and today brings unexpected details on another possible sequel to their upcoming film.

In an interview with the folks over at EW, Halloween co-writer Danny McBride and director David Gordon Green talked about how they almost shot two movies back-to-back.

We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back. Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So, we were like, let’s learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn’t. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully, we get a chance to do it.

Before we get too excited at the idea of another sequel, let’s just wait for Blumhouse’s new Halloween movie to come out first. This October, Michael Myers finally returns home to haddonfield for one more night of hell.

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.

The film also stars Nick Castle, who reprises his role as Michael Myers, stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney will also don the mask, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the daughter of Greer and the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, Virginia Ginny Gardner plays Vicky, Miles Robbins plays Dave, Dylan Arnold plays Cameron, and Drew Scheid plays Oscar.

John Carpenter executive produced the film with Malek Akkad for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum of Blumhouse. Gordon Green and Danny McBride also executive produced under their Rough House Pictures banner. Special FX specialist Christopher Nelson created the new Michael Myers mask.

Halloween will stalk theaters on October 19th, 2018.
