With talk flying around about following David Gordon Green’s supremely popular film Halloween, the Queen of Scream herself has confirmed she is yet to receive an approach.
Gordon Green’s Halloween managed to completely smash all box office records and has become the highest grossing slasher film of all time. With interest still high, Green’s Halloween has scooped $229.6 million (£174.54m) worldwide according to ticket receipts. The Blumhouse Productions film, distributed by Universal Pictures, has managed to reclaim top spot with its unprecedented success.
Original Halloween director and composer, John Carpenter, has already confirmed his interest in scoring the next Halloween sequel. Now, Jamie Lee Curtis has urged Green to pursue it: “I have no idea at this point, today, I have no idea,” she said when asked if a new film was in the works by EW. “I would make an assumption that, if [director and co-writer] David Gordon Green has a story to tell, that the people involved with the movie would encourage him to tell it,” she added.
“I haven’t been told whether or not he has a story to tell and whether or not he would include Laurie Strode in the telling. Really, time will tell. I know David is a busy guy,” she concluded.
