John Carpenter confirms he’s ready to score the next ‘Halloween’ sequel
Original Halloween director and composer, John Carpenter, has confirmed his interest in scoring the next Halloween sequel.
Carpenter, now famed for his work, returned to the Halloween franchise as both composer and executive producer for the incredibly successful recent sequel Halloween (2018) which was directed by David Gordon Green.
Halloween (2018) synopsis:
“It’s been 40 years since Laurie Strode survived a vicious attack from crazed killer Michael Myers on Halloween night. Locked up in an institution, Myers manages to escape when his bus transfer goes horribly wrong. Laurie now faces a terrifying showdown when the masked madman returns to Haddonfield, Ill. – but this time, she’s ready for him.”
Gordon Green’s Halloween is continuing to smash all Box Office records and has become the highest grossing slasher film of all time. With interest still high and thousands still making their way to the cinemas, 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.
Now, off the back of its triumph, Carpenter has again made Halloween fans overjoyed with the confirmation that he’s ready to work on yet another sequel. In a new interview with CoS, Carpenter was asked about future involvement… to which he replied: “We’ll be ready. We’ve all talked about it. We’ll be ready.”
