To announce the start of filming, Blumhouse Productions shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the production on Reddit featuring returning director and co-writer David Gordon Green's chair, as well as Michael Myers' iconic butcher knife.
Halloween Kills and its own sequel Halloween Ends were both announced at Comic-Con International in San Diego by Blumhouse. Green is returning to direct both installments, joined by returning co-writer Danny McBride. Both films will be executive produced by franchise creator John Carpenter and longtime star Jamie Lee Curtis.
2018's Halloween is the eleventh installment in the long-running slasher franchise. Serving as a soft reboot, the film ignored the events of all but the 1978 original film, as masked serial killer Michael Myers escaped custody to cut a bloody path through the streets of Haddonfield, Illinois 40 years after the infamous babysitter murders seen in the first film.
Directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier, Halloween Ends stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak and Judy Greer. The film is set to hit theaters on Oct. 16, 2020.
