Halloween kills Director David Gordon Green joked about Busta Rhymes’ return Halloween: Resurrection character for a new movie. Halloween kills will be Green’s second Halloween film, following his work on the recent 2018 reboot.

The Halloween the franchise has broken down into many timelines since its inception in 1978. One of those timelines was the H2O timeline, which apparently ended with the release of Halloween: Resurrection in 2002. In this film, Michael Myers returns to his childhood home to hunt down a group of college students who have agreed to spend Halloween night in the house for a show hosted by Freddie Harris of Busta Rhymes. Michael kills his victims one by one, leading to a confrontation in which Harris unleashes his martial arts skills to defeat Michael and trap him in the burning house.

I literally said to [VP of Development at Blumhouse Productions] Ryan Turek the other day, ‘Should Busta Rhymes be in the next one? This one, I think, was full of that fan accomplishment for me, in so many ways. The next one I’m trying to think about, I think there are a few little bits. But it’s nothing overt or excitingly done. It is a sort of enema of the world that we have established here. And then new faces and voices that take center stage, next door.
While Green seems to be joking about bringing Busta Rhymes back as Freddie Harris, the comments above give a glimpse of what he is thinking about for fan service in his Halloween movies. This explains the decision to bring back characters like Tommy Doyle (Anthony Michael Hall) and Lindsay Wallace (Kyle Richards). Green clearly wants to move the franchise forward, but he’s also focused on re-integrating little details from everyone else. Halloween franchise to mix the old and the new. This means Halloween kills and Halloween ends Both will likely be blessed with plenty of fan services.
While it might seem odd to bring Busta Rhymes back for a Halloween continuation, it is worth remembering how much Halloween the franchise has resumed its rights in recent years. With Halloween kills using Silver Shamrock masks from Halloween III: Season of the WitchIt is clear that formerly slandered film elements can be reimagined and reused in later films. It doesn’t necessarily seem likely that Busta Rhymes will return in the future. Halloween movie, but audiences can see all of the fan service that made the cut when Halloween kills debuts in theaters and on Peacock on October 15.
