Halloween Kills producer Ryan Freimann says Michael Myers will never cross over with fellow slasher legends Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.
Halloween producer says Michael Myers will never cross over with Freddy or Jason. The original slasher movie icon Myers returned to movie screens in 2018’s Halloween reboot and will come back again to terrorize Haddonfield in next month’s sequel Halloween Kills.
Halloween 2018 of course represented a reset for the long-running horror franchise as David Gordon Green took over directorial duties under the watchful eye of Blumhouse Productions. The OG Michael Myers obviously arrived way back in 1978 in John Carpenter’s brooding original Halloween. Indeed the slasher craze was for all intents and purposes kicked off by Carpenter’s Halloween, though the genre would quickly become a lot gorier and less technically polished. The masked-and-silent killer Myers would himself inspire loads of future slasher villains of course, some more effective than others. Of those Halloween-inspired slasher movie bad guys, Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th and Freddy Krueger of A Nightmare On Elm Street are undoubtedly the most iconic today. In later years, Jason and Freddy even met on-screen in a slasher crossover movie for the ages.
