Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are noticeably enjoying working on their dream project. As fans of the 1978 John Carpenter classic Halloween, McBride and Green cranked out an original follow-up screenplay to the film that didn’t just win over Jamie Lee Curtis, but even Carpenter himself. Carpenter would go on to say that these two writers understand the story beautifully and attached himself as executive producer on the project. Now, it has become apparent that McBride and Green had even grander plans for this project.
In a statement that happened earlier on during the production of the film, McBride revealed that their initial plans were to create back-to-back films in the series, but chose not to go that route. McBride explained:
“We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back. Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So, we were like, Let’s learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn’t. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully we get a chance to do it.”
