Myers To Stalk Haddonfield Forever

Last week it was announced that Universal will be bringing not one Halloween sequel, but two to the big screen. The sequels already have titles. They have been named Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Fans excited by the creative talent behind the 2018 sequel should be excited as this creative team will see the series through to Halloween Ends.

This Is The End’s Danny McBride is back alongside Pineapple Express director David Gordon Greene. Thankfully 2018’s Halloween was a refreshing take on Michael Myers character. The 2018 film is on Rotten Tomatoes now with a rating of 79%. That’s a huge improvement over House of A Thousand Corpses director Rob Zombies 2007 Halloween reboot that has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 27% as of this writing. By the time fans get Halloween Ends, that’ll be a whopping 13 films centered around the sleepy town of Haddonfield Illinois. But that number is just a drop in the bucket.

According to Danny McBride. Here are his words – “I think no way and I wouldn’t want it [to end],” McBride said. “I feel like Michael Myers is such an iconic horror character, there’s a simplicity to why he’s scary that I think it will always be relevant for generations to come. I think we’re lucky enough to have a shot at it right now. I’m sure 10 years from now there’ll be another group of knuckleheads that think they have the answer to what they should do with Michael Myers next.”

So while Halloween Ends may definitely be the end for the creative team. It won’t mark the end for the Michael Myers character. I’m sure down the road some new bunch of filmmakers will inject the franchise with new blood and possibly a new direction. Danny McBride detailed the reasoning behind not shooting all three films of the trilogy back to back.

“When we first were signed up for it, we were going to originally try to do three movies back-to-back,” McBride said. “Ultimately, we were kind of all like let’s make sure we can do this one good. Then when we connected with people, we all decided let’s try to continue what we were going to do.”

Green chimed in as to what fans are in store for with the second and third films.

“It’s just a continuing story that’s got a beginning, middle and end. I’m excited to begin it,” Green said. “The middle is chaos and the ending is very satisfying.” Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends will be released in October of 2020 and 2021. So let’s begin counting down the days leading up to the madness promised madness in the second film.
