After a nearly decade long period of dormancy following Rob Zombie’s Halloween 2, last year saw Blumhouse triumphantly resurrect the Halloween franchise via a new film that served as a direct sequel to only John Carpenter’s original 1978 classic.
Both critics and fans mostly reacted to Halloween (2018) in a positive fashion, and the confusingly titled sequel went on to make a boatload of cash at the box office. Another follow-up seemed inevitable, and now it looks all but officially confirmed.
According to a new report by Collider, Blumhouse has penciled in an October 16th, 2020 release date for Halloween 2, a sequel to last year’s hit. Both star Jamie Lee Curtis and director David Gordon Green are reportedly expected to return.
While Collider has indeed broke news in the past, it’s still important to remember that Blumhouse has yet to weigh in on this report. Until they do, fans should hold off on getting too excited about Michael Myers’ seemingly impending return to theaters.
Personally, I’m all for as many Halloween movies as Blumhouse wants to make. Michael Myers is an icon for a reason, and only a few times in his long history has he starred in an outright stinker. Kudos to Blumhouse for keeping the release date in October.
