In a recent interview with The New Yorker, the man behind the iconic slasher saga suggested that any further sequels are completely dependent on the next film’s performance at the box office.
“If a movie makes enough money, you can be assured that it will [get a sequel],” he told the publication.
When asked if Halloween Ends would be the final instalment of the franchise, he then replied: “I will have to see how much money it makes!”
Earlier this month, Carpenter expressed a similar sentiment while talking to the Pittsburg Post Gazette, saying: “If the movie makes money, I don’t believe it’s the end." There’s a way when a movie makes money, it seems to resurrect the next one. "
Set for release this October, Halloween Ends has been touted as the epic conclusion to the slasher saga, with Laurie Strodes (Jamie Lee Curtis) and masked serial killer Michael Myers (James Jude Courtney) set for one final showdown.
The upcoming film will be directed by David Gordon Green and also stars Kyle Richards, Will Patton, Andi Matichak, Rohan Campbell, and Nick Castle.
