David Gordon Green Says 'Halloween Kills' Scenes Impressed John Carpenter

We still don’t know for sure if director David Gordon Green‘s Michael Myers sequel Halloween Kills will make it to theatres this year. The film’s producer Jason Blum recently stated that the marketing campaign for the film will not begin until the October 16th release date is 100% confirmed. We do, however, have some fun titbits for you today.

While speaking about John Carpenter’s involvement with Halloween Kills, Green had the following to say in an interview conducted for Empire magazine’s latest issue:

Although he didn’t direct HALLOWEEN II, he was very involved in the writing of it and he’d asked himself the same questions we’ve been asking ourselves. How do you continue this but make it satisfying and different? We’d also do Skype sessions where I’d watch him watch scenes, then he’d give feedback. He would jump, laugh and sometimes gives a thumbs up. Which for me, who grew up on ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA, was pretty incredible (laughs).

Green on what Halloween Kills is focused on:

The first one was more about Laurie’s life of isolation after Michael and her attempts at revenge. It was personal. This is more about the unravelling of a community into chaos. It’s about how fear spreads virally.

John Carpenter is confirmed to provide new scores for both sequels. The third film will wrap up the Laurie Strode and Michael Myers saga.

Jamie Lee Curtis stars as Laurie Strode, Nancy Stephens will reprise her role as Nurse Marion Chambers, Charles Cyphers will reprise his role as Leigh Brackett, Anthony Michael Hall will play Tommy Doyle, Kyle Richards will reprise her role as the adult Lindsey Wallace, Jibrail Nantambu will return as Julian, Robert Longstreet has been cast as the adult Lonnie Elam, Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney are returning to play the role of Michael Myers.

Stay tuned for more updates on Halloween Kills as they happen.

Halloween Kills will stalk theaters on October 16th, 2020, followed by Halloween Ends on October 15th, 2021.
