Michael Myers is coming back!
Turns out the new Halloween film won’t be a straight-up remake. It’s going to take place after the first two, keeping the story of the original “Night He Came Home” intact.
“You know, it’s not a remake. It’s actually, it’s gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way. And for our mythology, we’re focusing mainly in the first two movies and what that sets up and then where the story can go from there.” – Danny McBride (co-writer of the new film).
Of course, there already was a third Halloween film, the fan-favorite Halloween III: Season of the Witch – but for the most part, it’s considered a standalone film.
The new Halloween is set to be released on October 18th, 2018.
