Blumhouse Production isn’t yet done exploring Michael Myers’ and Laurie Strode’s arc in this reboot Halloween franchise as Slasher fans will be presented with two more titles to give a conclusion with a new trilogy. Halloween Kills is set to be the sequel to the 2018 movie which saw the return of Jamie Lee Curtis.
A new report coming off from Production Weekly states that Halloween Kills will begin filming on September 13 at Wilmington, NC. The sequel’s working title is ‘Mob Rules’.
David Gordon Green is returning to helm Halloween Kills as well as the third installment, Halloween Ends. The sequel is expected to wrap up production on November 8. The filmmakers have plenty of time on their watch with its release scheduled for October 16, 2020.
It was earlier reported by Bloody Disgusting that Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends will be filmed back-t0-back and that news was confirmed when John Carpenter himself announced the last two titles form the franchise. Carpenter is also involved in the projects so let us hope that he may have a brand new score for the upcoming films.
Gordon Green co-wrote the script for Halloween Kills with Danny McBride and Scott Teems whereas the script for the last film the saga was co-written by the director along with McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier.
Universal and Blumhouse’s release of the reboot Halloween movie opened last October to $76.2 million, making it the highest opening in the franchise’s history. The film ended up earning over $255 million globally and $159 million in the U.S. on a budget in the $10 million range.
The post-credits scene from 2018 Halloween confirmed that Myers’ managed to survive the events of the film and its likely that Halloween Kills will pick up from that.
