One of the big horror movie rules is that the bad guy always comes back, so we shouldn't be surprised that Danny McBride's Halloween reboot is getting two sequels.
The announcement from Universal Pictures didn't offer anything in the way of plot details, but the very existence of sequels means that there is more to this story and the video confirms as much, saying that "The saga of Michael Myers and Laurie Strode isn't over".
Jamie Lee Curtis isn't leaving the Halloween franchise behind anytime soon.
The 2018 take, produced by Trancas International Films, Blumhouse, and Miramax, garnered some of the best reviews for a series entry yet. The news was revealed by John Carpenter himself, so that's about as official as it gets.
Halloween Kills will be written by David Gordon Green & Danny McBride & Scott Teems, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill. John Carpenter, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, Danny McBride, David Gordon Green and Ryan Freimann are executive producers. Ryan Turek is overseeing for Blumhouse. On the night before Halloween in 1978, Myers escapes and makes his way back home to Haddonfield, Ill., where he stalks high-school student Laurie Strode, memorably played by Curtis in her film debut. Both will be directed by David Gordon Green, who also directed 2018's Halloween.
In the original film, villain Michael Myers has spent the last 15 years locked away inside a sanitarium under the care of child psychiatrist Dr. Sam Loomis. Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are expected to return alongside Curtis.
