The next Halloween film, Halloween Kills, will look at how the town of Haddonfield is dealing with Michael Myers’ carnage. Director David Gordon Green spoke with Total Film (via Games Radar) and discussed one of the key themes of the upcoming sequel, which will be the follow-up to Green’s 2018 Halloween.

“If the first film was somewhat retelling the origin of Myers and getting us up to speed with where Laurie had been all those years, then part two is about the outrage of Haddonfield,” Green said. “Mob Rules was our working title for the film. It’s about a community that is united by outrage and divided in how to deal with evil.”

Green also told the site that as a result of this, Halloween Kills will pull away from the humor of the first film. This also explains why the film is bringing back some of the cast of the original film in their roles, such as Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion, and Charles Cyphers as Sheriff Leigh Brackett. Anthony Michael Hall is set to play the role of Tommy Doyle, previously played by Brian Andrews in the first two films, Danny Ray in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, and Paul Rudd in Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers.

Halloween Kills is set to release on October 15th, 2021.
