There’s already been rumblings afoot that a further Halloween sequel is being planned – after all, David Gordon Green’s return for The Shape has already amassed over $100 million globally – and now Jamie Lee Curtis has seemingly thrown her hat into the ring for another outing as Laurie Strode.
Speaking to Empire Australia, Curtis explained, “If David Gordon Green called me up and said let’s do another Halloween, I would do another Halloween because he did such a beautiful job creating this movie.”
While the currently-in-cinemas Halloween was indeed billed as the final confrontation between Michael Myers and Laurie, we’ve all seen Michael return from his apparent demise several times by this point. Granted, anything bar John Carpenter’s 1978 Halloween is deemed non-canon in the world of 2018’s Halloween, but the franchise to date has seen Michael burned alive and blown up in Halloween II, shot multiple times and falling to his death in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and decapitated in Halloween H20, and that’s not touching on the ambiguous endings seen in Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers and Halloween: Resurrection.
So yeah, the point being, there’s always a way for The Shape to return to action. The key to getting Jamie Lee Curtis back on board for another Halloween, though, appears to be David Gordon Green’s involvement – and the last we’d heard, there was still nothing confirmed on whether or not he’ll be back in the director’s chair for any follow-up.
As ever, expect more on all things Halloween as we get in. And in the meantime, be sure to pick up our on-sale issue for the second and final part of our comprehensive Halloween franchise retrospective.
