There’s still hope for The Figure to continue.
It seems like we may have an update on the upcoming sequel to 2018’s Halloween as Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse Productions is trying to get the first trailer for Halloween Kills released. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic forcing various movies to be released via streaming service, Blum is also hoping the movie will be able to see its release before the end of the year. However, that may be somewhat up in the air at this point.
Jason Blum recently spoke to this possibility during an interview, while promoting You Should Have Left, which debuted digitally over the weekend.
“Well, we’re trying to get that trailer out and trying to get that movie out before the end of the year. That’s our hope, dream, and plan. We’ll see.”
As of this writing, Halloween Kills is still slated to hit theaters in October. However, with theaters being shut down since mid-March and studios halting production as certain theaters are going through their own phases to open their doors to the public productions for various movies premiering in the Fall could go as scheduled. Though Jason Blum did promise fans that they’ll enjoy the sequel by saying “If you liked the previous one, you’ll like this one, I’ll say that.” we can only hope we get to see the film this year.
Despite the plot of the film being kept under wraps, David Gordon Green did reveal that the sequel will take us back to the Myers’ house. Co-writer Scott Teems spoke in an interview earlier this year about the film touting that the film is “bigger, badder” and “meaner” than the first one. Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green with John Carpenter returning as Executive Producer and providing the score. Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode with other cast members including Judy Greer, Anthony Michael Hall, Andir Matichak and Kyle Richards.
Halloween Kills is set to arrive in theaters on October 16th. The final installment of this trilogy, Halloween Ends is expected to shoot sometime next year with the current released date slated on October 15th, 2021, although that may be delayed given the production delays that could go well into next year, only time will tell.
