Blumhouse Says They Have No Plans For A Halloween Sequel


Having been a fan of the franchise for as long as I can remember, you’d better believe that Blumhouse’s addition to the Halloween series is among my most anticipated films to roll out in 2018. Like many of you, I’m intrigued to see how it’ll take the story in a new direction, effectively ignoring all sequels that came in between.

Seeing as how there’ve been so many offerings to date, one would have to be a fool to think this’ll be Michael Myers’ last cinematic killing spree, but everything hinges on its box office return. I mean, the studio would probably love them some follow-ups, but they need to turn a profit first, right?

Speaking of which, a fan on Twitter asked Jason Blum himself if he and his colleagues have a plan for a sequel, to which he answered, “We don’t have a plan, but I love your question.” Oddly enough, the Tweet was later deleted, but has confirmed that it was posted for a brief period.

Perhaps the deletion was because the quote could easily be taken out of context. In my view, Blum simply meant that they’ll evaluate the movie’s success before proceeding with a sequel, though some may have misinterpreted him by thinking that he implied a standalone effort was the intention.

Of course, ideas for another indulging have been swirling around, but again, nobody in Hollywood is counting their chickens before they hatch. All we can really do at this point is cross our fingers and hope that Michael comes home again – and again after that.

Halloween opens in theaters on October 19th.
