When last year’s new Halloween movie – confusingly titled Halloween – hit theaters, fans really weren’t sure what to expect. Sure, advance reviews were promising, but it had been nearly a decade since Michael Myers slashed on the big screen.
On top of that, while the Rob Zombie films certainly have their fans, to say his Halloween efforts proved divisive would be a massive understatement. With Jamie Lee Curtis back as Laurie Strode, and John Carpenter back producing, fans held their breath.
Thankfully, Halloween (2018) would go on to be enjoyed by most, and make a bundle at the box office. Sure enough, this was enough to awaken the franchise from its slumber fully, leading Blumhouse to greenlit sequels Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.
Jamie Lee Curtis is once again returning, as is creator John Carpenter, who memorably composed the score for the revival. Now, he’s confirmed to ComicBook.com that he’ll be back to make more music for the sequels, coming in 2020 and 2021.
Director David Gordon Green and his writing partner Danny McBride intend their trilogy to wrap up the franchise, but of course, that’s been tried more than once before. Michael Myers will never truly be dead, and us fans wouldn’t have it any other way.
