With Halloween Kills landing in theaters this weekend, director David Gordon Green is already being asked about the progress of the planned finale of the new Halloween trilogy, Halloween Ends. Now, in an interview with Bloody Disgusting, Green has confirmed that his and Danny McBride’s script for Halloween Ends is officially complete with Green just waiting on notes from Halloween creator John Carpenter before moving forward. Read the director’s quote below.
“Halloween Ends is complete, and actually, I’m getting John Carpenter’s notes on the new draft later. So, I’m excited about that. There is resolve. Like any trilogy, you want it to have a beginning, middle, and end. We had a concept of the ending, and two years ago, we wrote the first draft of it. So, we had it all mapped out before we went into production on Kills. We knew where it was going, and we wanted Kills to be a symphony in the middle of the book of the Strode saga.”
Chris Bernier and Paul Brad Logan also share writing credits on Halloween Ends, with the writing team having penned a first draft two years ago. Halloween Ends is scheduled for release on October 14, 2022.
