Blumhouse’s forthcoming follow-up to David Gordon Green’s reboot-slash-remake of “Halloween” is locked and loaded. After a positive screen test with about 200 moviegoers, it sure sounds like the planned trilogy is hitting all the marks.
In an interview with Movie Web, screenwriter Scott Teems (“The Quary”) propels the hype train even further with this statement:
“I really can’t say anything about it, but I am really excited about it. I saw a rough cut of it a few weeks ago, and I’m a little biased, but my gut says that people that like the last one will be very excited about this one. It’s like the first one on steroids, I guess. It really is the bigger, badder, meaner version of the first one.”
Due out later this year, “Halloween Kills” is directed by Green, co-written by Teems and McBride, and scored by none other than John Carpenter — who directed the seminal 1978 classic. The cast includes Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak, who are all reprising their roles from the 2018 film.
Following “Kills”, Blumhouse and Universal Pictures have the third and final film, “Halloween Ends”, lined up on the pipeline for 2021.
“Halloween Kills” is slated for release October 15, 2020.
