Exclusive: ‘Halloween Kills’ Extended Cut With New Ending Coming to Blu-ray, Says David Gordon GreenCOLLIDER: I'm curious with the ending of this film, how did you guys decide where you wanted to end this one? And was it always this, or did you have another option?
DAVID GORDON GREEN: There's actually, we're going to do a... This is the director’s cut through and through, but there’s an additional scene that we filmed that was scripted. And actually I think is a pretty brilliant scene. So we’re going to do an extended version on the DVD, just so people can see an extended ending that’s different and cool. We ended up lifting it when I became more confident of where we’re going to pick up in the next movie; it didn’t feel authentic to where we’re going to go. So we lifted it. So we just said, we’re kind of coming up with, okay, then if we lift that, where do we end? And it was actually Couper Samuelson at Blumhouse, he was just, let’s just end when it’s over. Lights out. He mentioned it, he was like remember in Rogue One
, when you wanted the movie to end? When it was a Darth Vader going ballistic at the door.
Is the scene that you cut that will be in the extended version? Is that scene canon? Is it part of the movie or is this just a fun other scene?
GREEN: It’s part of the movie. It’s just not part of the appropriate momentum of…I think it was cool in its own right as watching a one-off movie, but knowing where we’re going to exactly where we’re going to pick up which, you’ll know in a year, it wasn’t the right look in the eye that we needed to give the audience."
