Blumhouse's Next Halloween Movie Reportedly Begins Filming This Fall, Eyeing a 2020 Release

It would also appear that David Gordon Green is back on board to both write and direct.

It's been no secret that Jason Blum wants to do another Halloween movie. We last heard from the producer back in February when he said the company had not yet acquired deal rights for the sequels, but, by all accounts, it has felt like mostly everybody has been excited to bring us more Michael Myers.

For starters, John Carpenter said he'd be ready to score another film, while other early reports have indicated that Scott Teems was in talks to pen the script. However, the latest news from Collider seems to suggest that work on the next Halloween film is closer to kicking off than we thought. In fact, according to this information, David Gordon Green may be coming back to write and direct as well.

None of this has been officially confirmed yet, but Collider is reporting that the sequel is set to begin filming this fall with eyes pointing towards a 2020 release, possibly on October 16th, which is a date Universal has apparently already set aside for an undetermined Blumhouse project. The Strode family, consisting of Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie, Judy Greer's Karen, and Andi Matichak's Allyson, would all be back as well, though those deals have not yet been finalized.

If this report proves accurate, we will have just over a year before we will get to see The Shape on the big screen once again. Considering how much of a hit the last Halloween was, it only makes sense for Blumhouse not to sit on this sequel for too long. As usual, follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this project and the franchise as a whole.
