Although the project is said to be in the very, very early stages, Trick 'r Treat writer-director Michael Dougherty announced at a special fan screening on Monday that a sequel to his Halloween anthology cult hit is on the way.

"Itís funny because when I first dreamt up the idea of making the first film, I thought, ďHow neat would it be if we made them a series?Ē he said. "Iím a firm believer that October should be filled with Halloween movies, or horror movies."

No script is, as of yet, in place, but Legendary Pictures is developing the project with the hopes of going theatrical. Although that was the intended plan for the original in 2007, it wound up being delayed and ultimately went direct-to-DVD in 2009.

"I think weíll shake it up a little bit," Dougherty continues about his tentative plans for the sequel. "There are different archetypes Iíd like to explore, different types of monsters. We covered werewolves, vampires, and zombies, but thereís a whole slew of different creatures out there that we havenít tackled, and I think Sam would probably be pretty good buddies with. So I think itís time to let them have their time in the sun."

An October release means that Trick 'r Treat 2 would likely hit in 2015 at the earliest, but it could be a bit longer before cameras are ready to roll. Check back for updates on the project as soon as they become available.
