2019 San Diego Comic Con is upon us and if you’re a fan of the ‘HALLOWEEN’ series, boy do we have some news for you! Confirmed this morning in an announcement video by creator John Carpenter himself, Michael Myers will be returning to the big screen in not one, but two additional sequels to the 2018 sequel/reboot. And get this, they’re being released back to back in 2020 and 2021.
Halloween Sequels Announcement
First off, on October 16, 2020, the first sequel, Halloween Kills, will be released. The script is reportedly already finished and was penned by the director of the 2018 installment, David Gordon Green, and writing partner on that film, Danny McBride, also written with newcomer to the franchise Scott Teems. Not much is known about the story yet, but it is expected to pick up right where the previous film left off, with Laurie Strode and her family having survived another encounter with Michael. The previous film ended with some finality, as Michael was presumably dead, but with this new announcement, that obviously isn’t the case.
Then, on October 15, 2021 the third sequel, and presumed end to the franchise, Halloween Ends, will be released. The script for this film is also reportedly finished, having been penned once again by Gordon Green and McBride, with newcomers Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier also contributing.
Series creator John Carpenter is involved once again, though his contributions have yet to be announced. Hopefully he returns to his composer role and provides us with more chilling sounds and reinventions of his iconic score from the 1978 horror classic. Blumhouse is set to produce and David Gordon Green is back to direct both films.
