Universal film “Halloween Kills” is on its way on October 16, but the the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Halloween is going to be even scarier.
Nick Castle is the man who originally brought Michael Myers to life and, while he’s been present in these new movies, it’s been Courtney who has been doing the heavy lifting. Now, Courtney has opened up a bit about the movie, saying that they won’t just be repeating what’s come before.
At this point, not much can be said as details regarding the sequel are being kept tightly under wraps. We know it will pick up after the events of the previous movie, meaning that, presumably, Michael Myers survived his seemingly fiery demise. James Jude Courtney, in a recent interview, had this to say about how Halloween Kills will move things forward. “We have to make the natural progression from 1978 to the 2018 and obviously to “Halloween Kills” in 2020, the ante has been upped. The ticking bomb has to be more intense. Otherwise we’re just doing what we’ve done before. We pumped up the volume on this one. We’ve progressed late into the night, and now that everybody realizes what the stakes are… it’s reaching a head. It’s [the 2018 film] on speed.”
Following the success of Halloween, Blumhouse Productions and Universal were quick to lock down the cast, as well as director David Gordon Green for more. In this case, not just one, but two additional sequels that will definitively conclude this version of the franchise.
The film wrapped filming in November 2019, with Halloween Ends expected to begin filming sometime this year.
