The positioning says that Inexperienced may additionally return as a author and director – as has lengthy been anticipated – and that Jamie Lee Curtis will as soon as once more play Laurie Strode within the followup. Curtis solely simply had a gathering with Blumhouse head Jason Blum lower than two weeks in the past, so it isn’t laborious to imagine that she’s already prepared and prepared to do battle with Michael Myers on the massive display screen as soon as extra.
Halloween (2018) teased a sequel in its last scene, which confirmed Laurie and her daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) fleeing the burning wreckage of Laurie’s closely fortified home… solely to disclose a shot of its empty basement, as a manner of hinting that Michael had (someway) managed to flee the lure that Laurie set for him down there. Many critics felt the film did a pleasant job of balancing its throwback components with a extra fashionable narrative concerning the Strode ladies and the ripple results that Michael’s authentic homicide spree had had on their lives, on account of Laurie’s subsequent psychological trauma. That is to say, it solely is smart for Blumhouse to proceed creating that thread within the subsequent movie, with Inexperienced as soon as once more calling the pictures.
