Blumhouse wants to make 10 Halloween sequels... but doesn't have rights?

This past Halloween, we were finally hit with Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green's direct sequel to John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN. The film was met with tons of fanboy love and since then rumors and whatnot surrounding a possible sequel have been flying. And today is no different, kinda. What I mean is here we are again today talking about a possible Blumhouse HALLOWEEN II... but now it seems like it might not happen?

Let's just get right into what Jason Blum said recently and go from there:

Well, we had talked about it but right now we’re not shooting any “Halloween” movies right now because we don’t have deal rights to the sequels. But I certainly hope to make 10 more but I’ll start with one more.

Wait, what does Blum mean 'we don't have deal rights to the sequels'? Does this mean further Blumhouse HALLOWEEN movies are in jeopardy? But then what do we make of the news that the planned sequel recently snagged a screenwriter in the form of Scott Teems (new FIRESTARTER, Stephen King's THE BREATHING METHOD). My head already hurts. Hopefully, we hear more about this soon.

We'll let you know one way or the other when we hear anything further on a potential sequel to Blumhouse's HALLOWEEN. Until then, let us know what YOU thought of the latest entry below! Ignoring the events of every HALLOWEEN except the 1978 original, this HALLOWEEN is about 

Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Jamie Lee Curtis and Andi Matichak star alongside Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter Karen, Dylan Arnold as Allyson's boyfriend Cameron Elam, Will Patton as Officer Frank Hawkins, Virginia Gardner as Allyson's friend Vicky, Miles Robbins as Vicky's boyfriend Dave, Drew Scheid as Oscar, Toby Huss as Ray, Jefferson Hall as Aaron Korey, Rhian Rees as Dana Haines, Omar J. Dorsey as Sheriff Barker, Rob Niter as Deputy Sheriff Walker, Jibrail Nantambu as Julian, Haluk Bilginer as Dr. Ranbir Sartain, Nick McKeever as Deputy Keeve, and Diva Tyler as a caretaker. James Jude Courtney plays Michael Myers, with original Michael Myers performer Nick Castle (see above) also wearing the mask for one scene.

The film just hit Blu-ray and you can snag a copy on Amazon RIGHT HERE.
