One of the best slasher movies to come out in the history of slasher movies, the producer teases a chance for a possible sequel.
The founder of Blumhouse production has teased that he is in talks with Jaime Lee Curtis about the sequel of Halloween, reported Screen Rant. Curtis became synonymous with the character Laurie Strode back in 1978 when horror master John Carpenter made the original horror masterpiece Halloween. Curtis returned to her role for four Halloween sequels, including last year's Halloween, which retconned all the past Halloween sequels. The movie went on to gross $250 million worldwide, with producer Jason Blum hinting that a sequel announcement could be imminent.
Blum shared the picture of him and Curtis on Twitter and captioned the picture with a simple text that reads, "We are discussing stuff". What sets the rumors of a possible sequel for 'Halloween' is that Curtis is even holding a figure of herself from the last film. This is the most recent update that Blum has offered about the sequel of the movie recently. After sharing on Twitter that Blum's upcoming reboot of Invisible Man got a release date, one fan asked when we could expect news of a Halloween sequel, and to the fan's surprise, Blum replied saying, "Working on it."
Needless to say that these comments are definitely promising, they can also be viewed as frustrating since Blum has regularly expressed his interest in developing a sequel and firm plans have yet to come to fruition. In a previous interview with Moviefone, Blum said, "We had talked about it but right now we’re not shooting any Halloween movies right now because we don’t have deal rights to the sequels. But I certainly hope to make 10 more but I’ll start with one more."
After the huge success of the latest Halloween movie, Curtis herself confirmed she would be interested in returning to the series for the right story. While talking to Entertainment Weekly, she said, "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.”
