The new Halloween sequel is currently in the can and arriving this October. With OG actors like Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle returning, Halloween is reconnecting all of the sequels out of existence. But according to writer Danny McBride, the other movies will be referenced throughout the new sequel.
"This picks up after the first one. The Halloween franchise has kind of become a little bit of like choose your own adventure, you know like there's some many different versions, and the timeline is so mixed up, we just thought it would be easier to go back to the source and continue from from there. It was nicer than knowing you're working on Halloween 11, it just seemed cooler, 'we're making Halloween 2'. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there."
Danny McBride's comments to Flickering Myth are sure to be exciting for the hardcore Halloween fans out there, who might be miffed that none of the sequels were going to be included in the new movie's mythology.
