Halloween Kills (2021) / Halloween Ends (2022) - D: Green

Nothing official yet, but you know it's gonna happen...

After adapting a pair of Stephen King novels for Blumhouse, Scott Teems is in talks to write the sequel to David Gordon Green‘s Halloween, which will be based on a well-liked treatment Teems has already written for the company, multiple sources familiar with the project have told Collider.

Blumhouse had no comment.

Halloween stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are all expected to return along with producer Jason Blum, whose production company will produce the sequel alongside Miramax and Trancas International Films — with Universal expected to once again handle distribution. Miramax’s Bill Block and longtime franchise producer Malek Akkad will also produce, and I imagine David Gordon Green and Danny McBride will end up retaining their executive producer credits alongside Curtis and O.G. Halloween director John Carpenter.

2018’s Halloween ended with the three generations of Strode women trapping Michael in the basement of Laurie’s booby-trapped house as it proceeds to burn to the ground. As a big fan of the film, I’d personally love to see David Gordon Green return to direct, but at this point, that remains unclear, if not altogether unlikely.

While Teems himself has experience behind the camera, having made his feature directorial debut with the well-reviewed 2009 indie That Evening Sun starring Hal Holbrook, he’s only making a deal to write the script at this point. That shouldn’t come as a major surprise, as he has become one of Blum’s go-to writers, having adapted King’s book Firestarter and his novella The Breathing Method for Blumhouse. Scott Derrickson is attached to direct the latter, while Fatih Akin is attached to direct the former, which is also being produced by Akiva Goldsman.

There’s no clear timetable for the Halloween sequel, but I’d imagine Blumhouse would like to have this out in time for the spooky holiday in 2020, as this year seems a bit too soon. Then again, Blumhouse moves fast, so anything’s possible, and the company is slated to release an untitled film on Oct. 18, 2019. That slot could go to David Koepp‘s You Should Have Left starring Kevin Bacon and Amanda Seyfried or the recent Sundance entry Sweetheart starring Kiersey Clemons, if not the Halloween sequel itself. The most recent Michael Myers movie took in $76 million during its opening weekend en route to a worldwide gross of $253 million. Not bad for a movie with a $10 million budget, eh?

On the small screen, Teems served as a writer-director-producer on the acclaimed drama Rectify, and he also served as a co-EP on Narcos: Mexico in addition to directing the 2014 documentary Holbrook/Twain: An American Odyssey. He’s represented by Paradigm and Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

Halloween 2018 was a terrible film, so I don't think I'd watch a sequel. Definitely not in theaters for sure.

Halloween (2018) was the best sequel of the franchise, so my interest plummets if Green and McBride are not coming back to write/direct the sequel.

I ask myself the same question, along with Alien and Terminator.

We all knew this would happen so no one should be surprised. Thatís why I wasnít terribly keen on the idea of the 2018 film being a direct sequel. All it did was just start another timeline.

Considering Halloween 2018 was a massive hit, this really isn't a surprise. Although 2018 does serve as a decent series-ender on it's own. I highly doubt they can get Jamie Lee Curtis to come back again. It would be just repeating the same scenarios over again. I think a potential new movie will be a new cast.

The 2018 film really doesnít serve as an ending to the franchise at all. Itís left totally open ended and practically sets up a sequel. Had they closed the franchise out for good I think Iíd maybe view it in a slightly different light.

If they can write an "explanation" as to how he didn't get decapitated at the end of H2O, this will be a breeze to write around.

That kinda stuff never stopped him in the originals, as long as there was money to be made. Also, what you say happened to him at the end of this was not really shown happening. There was one single shot in that sequence that allowed the filmmakers all the wiggle room they'd need to bring him back.

Granted, I'd much prefer they just left off with the recent film. It's a decent wrap-up. But that box-office windfall spoke volumes, obviously.

oh i know. for sure. But someone needs to then explain his paranormal/unstoppable abilities. In this universe, there should be something to explain this

That's how we end up with silliness like druid cults or whatever. I prefer to think he found a cellar door she forgot to lock.

I mean you can pretty much just count on the fact that none of the big slasher characters ever really die. Thereís always an out to being them back.

I thought H'18 was OK, and I'm always game for another sequel, but I'd rather we move past the Strode women and on to newer things. I feel like Laurie said all she needed to in the last film.

You know thatís not happening though. My guess is Laurie gets killed in the next film and then itís Michael versus the granddaughter and maybe the daughter.

When she appeared in the original Halloween 2 she did very little and her dialog was very limited and Donald Pleasance was the main star.

Spoiler:
Michael was shot 3 times and hit by a car in this movie and none of that slowed him down. He's pure evil.

Wouldnít this be Halloween 3: The Second since Halloween Ď18 was a direct sequel to the original Halloween?
