In a joint statement on Twitter, Halloween Kills director David Gordon Green and series creator/executive producer John Carter announced that their sequel to 2018’s Halloween has been delayed until October 2021.
While the movie could certainly make its previous release date (October 16, 2020) the team behind it feel that COVID-related issues would make it difficult to experience/enjoy the film in theaters. On the plus side, however, they did release a new teaser for Halloween Kills that picks up directly after the events of the first film and looks all types of good.
Can’t help but agree with poor Lori Strode on “let it burn” sentiment, but I also loved the last Halloween movie and can’t wait to see that version of Michael Meyers again.
