Last year’s film saw 1978’s Halloween protagonist Laurie Strode take on the ever-looming serial killer 40 years after their first encounter. In a tweet from Blumhouse founder Jason Blum, he said that 2018’s Halloween director David Gordon Green and actress Jamie Lee Curtis would return for the projects as well as Danny McBride who helped write the latest movie; Carpenter, the original Halloween director, will also be back continuing to help the production as he did for the previous installment.
