It’s quite recently been uncovered that not exclusively is official producer John Carpenter’s 2018 Halloween film a continuation of the first 1978 exemplary, however it additionally disregards each and every sequel – including Halloween 2 and Halloween H20: 20 Years Later.
In a meeting with Stereogum, Carpenter uncovered that Jamie Lee Curtis’ character – Laurie Strode – was really not in the first content. Notwithstanding, Strode was written in after Curtis moved toward the executive about the part. Woodworker at that point clarified this was to a limited extent since they had chosen that the film would disregard the greater part of alternate sequels:
“She talked to the director. Her part was written into the script and they had this idea — it’s kind of a… I don’t know how to describe it. It’s almost an alternative reality. It picks up after the first one and it pretends that none of the other [sequels] were made. It’s gonna be fun. There’s a really talented director and it was well-written. I’m impressed.”
One takeaway from this is the sequel which will probably get rid of the “Laurie Strode is the long-lost younger sister of Michael Myers” plot component that was brought into the second film, which affected the greater part of the continuations and even the two movies of Rob Zombie’s change arrangement; it was included to serve as a legitimization for why a still-everywhere, twisted serial executioner would all of a sudden backpedal to focusing on one lady specifically when such a move would be – for absence of a superior term – crazy. This plot component is to some degree disruptive with the fans, as some idea it was all the more intriguing to envision Myers as not having a specific thought process.
So with that plot thought likely out the window because of the continuation being non-accepted to this motion picture, this should make it all the all the more fascinating if Myers winds up focusing on Strode 40 years after the fact. Curtis’ inclusion will probably arouse the interests of a ton of old-school Halloween fans who might have generally passed on the motion picture, and Carpenter’s association – alongside his trust in the content, which he added to – will probably imply that this film will be the best-made sequel in the establishment’s history.
The untitled Halloween sequel will be released on October 19, 2018. Jamie Lee Curtis is set to reprise her role as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer in talks to portray Karen Strode (Laurie’s daughter). The movie will be directed by David Gordon Green, written by Green and Danny McBride, produced by Malek Akkad, and executive produced by Carpenter, Green, McBride, and Blum.
