Danny McBride says they have ideas for the inevitable Halloween sequel

While speaking with Forbes shortly before the release of HALLOWEEN, Blumhouse Productions' Jason Blum said that although they were hoping to make a sequel to the film, they weren't "going to decide if we do a sequel or not until we see the reaction to this movie." As HALLOWEEN has already grossed over $100 million worldwide and received more than its share of positive reviews after less than a week, it's likely that the announcement of the inevitable sequel can't be far off.

There's nothing official just yet, but HALLOWEEN co-writer Danny McBride told Deadline that they already have a few ideas of where they want to go next.

We definitely have ideas of what we would do. I think we did not allow ourselves to really indulge those ideas until the movie came out. We just wanted to put all our hopes and dreams in having this film stick the landing. But we do have thoughts and ideas of what we could possibly do. We hadn’t invested a ton of time on them, but now we’re being asked to figure it out. There are definitely talks on whether we will do more of them and we’re just trying to see what best makes sense.

Earlier in the year Danny McBride said that David Gordan Green and himself had so many ideas for the film that they came close to pitching not one, but two HALLOWEEN films. "We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back. Then we were like, Well, let's not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we'd never work again. So, let's not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren't going to like," McBride said. "So, we were like, Let's learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn't. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully we get a chance to do it." HALLOWEEN is now playing in theaters, so be sure to check out reviews from our own Chris Bumbray and JimmyO and let us know what you thought of the film as well!
