Halloween Reboot Sequel Teased By Jamie Lee Curtis

More Myers?

11 Comments

Last year's reboot of the classic horror Halloween was one of 2018's biggest horror movies, making more than $225 million at the worldwide box office. Given this was already the 11th movie in the long running franchise, it's expected that producers Blumhouse Films will want to make another one. Now, studio boss Jason Blum and star Jamie Lee Curtis have hinted that work has started on a sequel.

Blum posted an image on Twitter of him and Curtis with the caption "We're discussing stuff," as Curtis holds a doll of her character Laurie Strode. While it doesn't necessarily mean they're discussing a new Halloween movie, let's face it, it's a very high possibility. Check it out below:

This isn't the first time that a Halloween sequel has been (possibly) discussed. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly last year, co-writer Danny McBride spoke about how he and director David Gordon Green had initially considered shooting two Halloween movies simultaneously.

"We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back," he said. "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. So, let's not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren't going to like.' 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."

Curtis herself has spoken about returning to the role that she first played back in 1978, in John Carpenter's hugely influential first Halloween, but admitted that finding a reason for the character to appear in yet another movie might be an issue.

"I'd be happy to do it, sure," she told EW in December. "This 2018 40th anniversary [movie] was Laurie's story, and obviously there are now other people's stories that would need to get told. But Laurie's story was told beautifully this year, and I would have no way of knowing how they would incorporate her into future."

Funnily enough the only really good thing after the original was Halloween III.

Halloween IV was sort of alright. Not great, but ok.

@uninspiredcup: Halloween 3, are you serious?

Season of the Witch had nothing to do with Michael Meyers at all. They literally took a movie that had nothing to do with the Halloween franchise, and slapped the Halloween name on it.

It was about Halloween masks that killed kids for chrissakes!

Please tell me you were joking.

Her story is done and over enough of her they have to move on and continue with the story. Now let's not forget about bringing Jason And Freddy back and give them their own individual movies. I'm even still waiting for that Jason Vs Freddy 2 that never happen.

Friday The 13th deserves a return instead, it also gives Halloween room to breath.

Does every single horror movie have to get a sequel?
