2018’s horror movie Halloween became a surprise hit at the box office and ended up getting positive reviews from the critics, who even called it “the best sequel” in the Halloween film series. The success of the movie was attributed mainly to the fact that filmmakers managed to capture the spirit of the original while Jamie Lee Curtis delivered a fantastic performance.
Fans immediately started to demand a sequel, so Lee Curtis was asked in a recent interview whether she would say yes to Halloween 2. The 59-year-old actress responded that she would be happy to do it but under one condition: she wants director David Gordon Green to return as well.
“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,” said Lee Curtis.
It wouldn’t be a surprise to see Halloween 2 finding its way to theaters soon, since David Gordon Green had an idea to make two movies from the very start. Before the filming on Halloween even started, Gordon Green and Danny McBride, co-writer and producer of the movie, pitched an idea to film two films back-to-back. Still, they ended up settling for one, since they didn’t know how the audience will react to the resurrecting of the franchise.
One of the movie’s producers, Jason Blum, also gave encouraging statements about Halloween 2 in the past. In an interview with Forbes in September, Blum said that the sequel is almost a certainty if the original performs at the box office and people love it.
“I’d love to do sequels, and I hope we do a sequel and we will do a sequel if the movie performs,” he said. “We’re not going to decide if we do a sequel or not until we see the reaction to this movie. But I hope to make it.”
