A sequel to the most succesful movie of the franchise so far is currently in talks and we can't wait to see the boogeyman once again.
We already have ELEVEN Halloween movies and fans of Michael Myers will certainly NOT complain if they were to see the man with darkest eyes return for another movie once again, given the film is actually good. First premiered in 1978, the Halloween franchise has experimented around a lot with the characters and themes but none of those sequels or reboots come close to the massive business Blumhouse's Halloween movie did last year. The direct sequel set 40 years after the events of the original movie kept the audience glued to the screen and made the film one of the greatest hits of 2018.
The success came as a surprise to everyone, even the creatives and the team of the movie and judging by the fact that flop or a hit, the franchise has been making movies, either way, we already guessed that they'll be making another Halloween movie and well, we were right. Rumors of the same have been here for a while but recently a fan took to his Twitter and asked Jason Blum about when he will be announcing the sequel officially and he replied saying, "working on it." YAYYY!

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. The scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is believed to return to resume her iconic role along with the starts of Halloween 2018 Judy Greer and Andi Matichak.
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.
Last year, Jamie Lee also revealed that she would love to play Strode again, "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." Are you up for another Michael Myers movie? It is happening but you gotta wait for a little and have 'patience.'
