Collider scooped the news that fans of the latest Halloween will definitely be getting a sequel sooner rather than later; Blumhouse knocking the sequelboot out of the park with their trademark super-returns on a bogglingly low $10 million budget.
The flick is expected to begin production after Labor Day and is slated for release on October 16 2020 via Universal, in plenty of time to put together the perfect updated Michael Myers costume, then puke all over it embarrassingly on the 31st in front of your horrified Plenty of Fish date.
I hate Halloween, the holiday.
The movie on the other hand will see Laurie Strode return, portrayed by Jamie Lee Curtis, with Judy Greer and Andi Matichak who are expected to reprise their respective roles as Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter, though negotiations have yet to close.
Sources claim that the previous instalment’s director, David Gordon Green will likely return barring any unforeseen scheduling conflicts; Blumhouse is unlikely to mess with the formula of one of their more successful offerings (and there are a good number of those in the roster, along with a decent number of interesting outings too.)
What do you guys think? Want to see where the Halloween franchise evolves from the 2018 outing? Still being a bit of an outsider to the Halloween-verse, I get that the remake-quel-boot-thing is a little divisive, but is there enough there to warrant further exploration?
