David Gordon Green Talks Ending His Trilogy
With David Gordon Green's conclusion to his Halloween trilogy releasing October 14th, you would think that Green would be pretty much done with the picture. But, according to an interview with Empire for their October issue, how Halloween Ends is still very much on the table.

Speaking with Empire, Green revealed he's still tinkering, chopping and perfecting his ending stating "It changes every day."
“It changes every day. In theory, the picture is locked, but this morning I called the editor and said, ‘What if we do this one thing…’ I speak with John [Carpenter] and Jamie Lee Curtis regularly about it. It’s exciting, uncertain, satisfying and sad. I’ve enjoyed the ride but it’s probably time to get off. I think we’re gonna go out with a bang. If our second film was free-for-all, violent chaos, this is a more intimate, atmospheric conclusion,”
Of course this isn't the first time we've heard that this film looks to be different from previous Halloween films. Original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle, who will cameo in this film as he has done in Green's previous two, stated Halloween Ends "will have a very surprising storyline… ending for everyone. It’s absolutely something I don’t think you would have ever guessed in terms of the way it’s going to unroll." Special effects make-up artist Chris Nelson teased Ends being "weird" and "different" with John Carpenter calling Ends a "departure from the others. It's interesting." in an interview with SyFy Wire.
"Only One of Them Will Survive."
After 45 years, the most acclaimed, revered horror franchise in film history reaches its epic, terrifying conclusion as Laurie Strode faces off for the last time against the embodiment of evil, Michael Myers, in a final confrontation unlike any captured on-screen before.
Four years after the events of last year’s Halloween Kills, Laurie is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing writing her memoir. Michael Myers hasn’t been seen since. Laurie, after allowing the specter of Michael to determine and drive her reality for decades, has decided to liberate herself from fear and rage and embrace life. But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that will force Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control, once and for all.
Halloween Ends will release in cinemas and via Peacock October 14th, check out the first trailer for the film below.
