Itâ€™s appears to be like prefer itâ€™s official, weâ€™re getting a sequel to Blumhouseâ€™s tackle the Halloween franchise. It was inevitable, following the essential success of the primary one, but it surely does imply thatÂ the collectionâ€™ good endingÂ must be undermined a little bit.
Nonetheless, we most likely shouldnâ€™t be shocked. Not solely did the unique make greater than twenty occasions its funds again ($255 million worldwide on a $10 million manufacturing funds), Jason Blum has been teasing the announcement for the reason that starting of the month.
However the information goes again even additional than that, we first received phrase that Blumhouse have been engaged on a sequel waaay again in October of final yr.
That was after we first heard Danny McBride reveal â€œtalksâ€ a few sequel to the horror smash had already begun.
Chatting withÂ Deadline, the filmmaker stated he and David Gordon-Inexperienced, the movieâ€™s co-writer and director, â€œundoubtedly have concepts of what we’d do [for a sequel]â€.
â€œWe hadnâ€™t invested a ton of time on them, however now weâ€™re being requested to determine it out,â€ McBride added.
â€œThere are undoubtedly talks on whether or not we are going to do extra of them and weâ€™re simply making an attempt to see what finest is smart.â€
In fact, as quickly as we heard that information,Â we tried to speak them out of it – partly as a result of this would be the third â€˜Halloween 2â€™ within the franchise (we actually hope they name the subsequent one one thing else) and partly as a result of Halloween 2018 was such an ideal ending for Laurie Strode.
However with Jamie Lee Curtis apparently concerned (if Jason Blumâ€™s tweet is to be believed) it appears to be like like weâ€™ll see extra from the unluckiest babysitter on the planet within the follow-up to the reboot.
ColliderÂ stories that taking pictures on Halloween 2 will begin within the autumn, aiming for an October 2020 launch. Simply in time for Halloween, clearly.
