Two More ‘Halloween’ Movies Confirmed for 2020 and 2021

Michael Myers in Halloween 2018

While fans of the Halloween franchise and horror didn’t always agree on their opinion of the 2018 reboot of Halloween, there’s no denying the film was a hit, grossing more than $250 million worldwide. And when a film makes that kind of money there is always talk of a sequel, so it’s of no surprise that today Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures will be releasing back-to-back sequels to the film in 2020 and 2021.

It was also announced that David Gordon Green would return to the director’s chair for both films as well as take part in writing duties. Jamie Lee Curtis will also be returning to the films to reprise her role as Laurie Strode. John Carpenter will again serve as an executive producer, though it’s uncertain if he will again contribute to the film’s soundtrack.

The first film will be titled “Halloween Kills” and open on Oct. 16, 2020. “Halloween Ends” will open a year later on Oct. 15, 2021.

With a name like “Halloween Ends,” my hunch is that this is going to somehow bring an end to Michael Myers and the Halloween saga as it relates to Laurie Strode, but as we all know, in horror, nothing is ever truly dead…
