Are 2 'Halloween' Sequels in the Works From Director David Gordon Green?
Double the horror trouble may be coming in fall 2020 — rumors are flying that "Halloween" may be getting two sequels, rather than just one.
Bloody Disgusting has an "unconfirmed rumor that’s too damn juicy to ignore." It claims that director David Gordon Green has decided to return and will direct back-to-back sequels to the 2018 hit film, which brought back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode to battle demented killer Michael Myers, seems to be in the works.
Not only that, the two sequels could possibly open in the same month, October 2020.
A follow-up is a no-brainer considering "Halloween" raked in over $225 million worldwide. And in early June, there was evidence that a sequel was in the works, when producer Jason Blum shared a cryptic photo of himself and Curtis "discussing stuff."
Blum previously told Moviefone that he hopes "to make 10 more" "Halloween" films.
When Green and co-writer Danny McBride set out on the 2018 project, they apparently planned to make two movies, but ended up just making the one.
"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," McBride told EW.
"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.”
Of course, "Halloween" went on to make oodles of money at the box office and fans are clamoring for more. So, Bloody Disgusting's report that they are filming two sequels back-to-back, and possibly releasing them around the same time, sounds like something the filmmakers might try to do.
