Producer Jason Blum, who previously revealed that he is working on another Michael movie, has now shared a picture with Jamie along with a caption which has horror fans thrilled!
"So...Michael is alive?" Obviously! You just can't kill the boogeyman. The direct sequel to the original Halloween movie was a MAJOR success, a bigger success than all the other Halloween movies combined, and just for your information, we have eleven of them as of yet. Halloween 2018 became one of the highest grossing movies of the year and the most successful film with a female lead of ALL TIME. Imagine that! And, well, now that Michael has tasted such sweet success, he's gonna return stronger than ever!
Gordon Green revived Halloween in the most perfect way - we had Jamie Lee Curtis, the original Myers, and John Carpenter's original score. It was meant to be a hit! Ever since the movie's release, Jason Blum has been teasing another sequel to the movie and longtime fans already know it is going to happen because you know, we heard Michael breathing during the end credits. He didn't die in that house fire.
"So, when is it happening?" A few weeks back, a fan took to Twitter and asked Jason Blum about when he will be announcing the sequel officially and he replied saying, "working on it" -- getting fans around the globe super stoked! Now, Blum has shared a picture of him with Jamie aka Laurie Strode while she's holding an action figure of herself. "We’re discussing stuff," wrote Jason. We get it, you love to tease. Give us a release date already!
Michael's reign of terror has been going strong since the last 40 years and has grossed over $620 million across the world, making the Halloween franchise one of the most successful ones and it looks like there's no stopping the boogeyman after all.
Scott Teems, who penned down 'Firestarter' has been signed to make another Michael Myers movie, reports Collider. Teems has previously worked on movie adaptations of Stephen King novels for Blumhouse and will now contribute his mind to Gordon Green's superhit Halloween.
Jason Blum's Blumhouse has produced pretty much almost all of the major horror hits from Paranormal Activity to the Oscar-winning movie Get Out, including the 2018 Halloween and will be working their magic for the sequel. Nick Castle, the original Michael Myers, has also expressed his desire to resume his legendary role, "I'd love to do it. I mean, it would probably still have to be in the same kind of parameters," Castle told ComicBook.
"I don't see myself at two in the morning putting on the mask and getting a chair thrown at me like poor James Jude Courtney had to do. I would love to do that, assuming it's something that John's involved with and hopefully that Jamie and hopefully [director] David [Gordon Green] is gonna be a part of the sequel, too, 'cause he really did a great job, I think, on reimagining and figuring out what to with it," the 71-year-old added.
Curtis has already admitted before that she would love to return to the movie, given they have a role for her. "I’d be happy to do it, sure. This was an extraordinary experience. David was a fantastic director, writer, but obviously this 2018, 40th anniversary, was Laurie’s story, and obviously, there are now other people’s stories that would need to get told. But Laurie’s story was told beautifully this year, and I would have no way of knowing how they would incorporate her into the future."
Do you think Laurie's story is done for and after 11 movies, they should finally give it a rest and come up with something new? We'll soon find out. Patience!
