Collider is reporting that the sequel to 2018‘s ‘Halloween’ is aiming to begin filming this fall, after Labor Day. With production starting after September 2nd, Universal is looking to release the film on October 16, 2020.
Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are all expected to return. The trio played the Strode family in the previous installment. No word on Nick Castle yet, but it would be shocking if he does not return.
Further, the screenplay is from returning filmmaker David Gordon Green, with the expectation he will direct once again. Moreover, if we’re lucky, original ‘Halloween’ director John Carpenter will return to compose the score.
Green, also with Collider, gave a peek into what he has in store for a potential sequel: (Spoiler alert for the first film.)
Collider: “Did you make the decision not to kill the boyfriend for a reason?”
Green: “Yeah. There’s some ideas for him for later.”
If the October 16, 2020 date gets chosen, this new ‘Halloween’ will be up against Paramount’s ‘G.I. Joe’ and Warner Bros.’ ‘The Witches.’
