EXCLUSIVE – Author John Passarella not returning for Halloween Kills novelisation


While news on the film version of Halloween Kills is still quite sparse, it was announced by Producer Ryan Turek during #HalloweenatHome that a novelisation is currently at first draft stage.

Bloody Flicks has exclusively learned that author John Passarella, who penned the novelisation of Halloween (2018) will not be returning.

Passarella said,

“My publisher submitted my name for the Halloween Kills novelisation, but the studio wanted a new writer for this one.

“I would have loved to have written Halloween Kills, actually I had hopes of writing all three books!

“But, that didn’t work out. Maybe I’ll be back for Halloween Ends. At this point, I don’t know. I couldn’t even guess—though I’m open for a return.”

The novelisation of Halloween (2018) was a decent companion to David Gordon Green’s film, with added nuances added into the text by Passarella, including one of the cut scenes where Allyson discovers a dead dog hung from a tree. One of plot point was the fact that the Myers house had been knocked down many years ago, during this timeline. Will this be changed for Halloween Kills? Only time will.
