Yep, two sequels, released within a few days of each other.

40 years to the month since the original was released, Jamie Lee Curtis returned to the role of Laurie Strode for what was claimed to be the final outing for her PTSD-heroine and the William Shatner-masked serial killer that really had it in for her after all this time.

It was a decent outing, scoring 67% on Metacritic, but when the $15 million production made over $255 million at the worldwide box office, we all knew that sequels would be talked about.

And so it is that Bloody Disgusting are reporting that is exactly the case, with director David Gordon Green, producers Jason Blum and John Carpenter, and the three generations of Strodes (Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak) set to return.

The interesting part of the new rumour is that they're planning on shooting two sequels back-to-back, with both of the movies potentially set for release in October 2020, maybe even just one week apart.

That is certainly a new release plan for such a major project. Obviously we've had big sequels hit the big screen after cliffhanger-y endings, but never quite this close together.

There was a full year between Infinity War and Endgame, there was six months between Back To The Future Parts II and III, and there was a similar gap between The Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions.

But pushing two big horror sequels out so close together could be a stroke of genius, as folk will want to see the first sequel, just to be clued in on (what is sure to be) a big twist ending, setting up the threequel perfectly.

The movies are reported to begin filming in September - just in time for the leaves to start turning all Autumn-y - so expect to hear more concrete details before too long.

Love film?
