After bringing Laurie Strode back to the big screen for a rematch with The Shape in 2018's Halloween, it's being reported that Jamie Lee Curtis and David Gordon Green are reteaming for a sequel that could begin filming this year.

Collider's Jeff Sneider reports that Jamie Lee Curtis is expected to return as Laurie Strode in a sequel to 2018's Halloween, with David Gordon Green also expected to return to direct a screenplay that he wrote. Also expected to come back are Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter, Karen, and Andi Matichak as Laurie's granddaughter, Allyson, although official deals have yet to be finalized.

According to Collider, filming on the Halloween sequel could begin after Labor Day this year, with a potential release date of October 16th, 2020.

Malek Akkad, Bill Block, and Jason Blum will return to produce the sequel, with Danny McBride, John Carpenter, Green, Curtis, and Couper Samuelson all expected to return as executive producers.

Halloween (2018) brought in more than $159 million domestically on a $10 million production budget (according to Box Office Mojo), so it's no surprise that a sequel is in the works.

Blumhouse has yet to officially comment on this report, but we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed on the latest entry to the Halloween franchise.
