At this point, it’s unclear whether the “Halloween” franchise will continue after “Halloween Ends.” Franchise creator John Carpenter, who is also an executive producer on the most recent trilogy, spoke with ComicBook.com about plans for the series later this year. Carpenter was quite pragmatic in his reply, “Let me explain the movie business to you: if you take a dollar sign and attach it to anything, someone is going to want a sequel. follow. It will survive. If the dollar sign isn’t. big enough, no matter what, it won’t live.”
Naturally, it all sounds like it’s all about the money, and if someone wants to mine the franchise for a few extra bucks, they’ll go ahead. But Carpenter didn’t know what would happen after the sequel. “I don’t know, man,” he continued. “I don’t know. This time, I don’t know. They really want it to end. They’re going to turn it off, end it. That’s the thing. [director] David [Gordon Green] have in mind. It’s good now.” Producer Jason Blum had the same answer last year when asked about the future of movies after “Halloween Ends”, “I would love to prolong it. [producer] Malek [Akkad] really want us, I’d love to prolong it, but we’re very busy making sure the third movie is epic because that’s our immediate work and if it goes beyond that, I’ll be very happy. fun. But there are currently no plans for us to get involved after this third movie. “
“Halloween” in 2018 grossed over 250 million dollars against a budget of 10 million dollars. Meanwhile, “Halloween Kills” grossed 130 million dollars worldwide, but that opened up amid the COVID-19 pandemic. It’s clearly still a profitable franchise, and if “Halloween Ends” hits the mark, there could very well be more Michael Myers in our future.
