Miramax Eyes ‘Halloween’ Cinematic Universe With Killer TV Deal

Miramax is bringing Michael Myers and the Halloween cinematic universe to your TV.

After a heated bidding war, Miramax has won the television rights to the popular Halloween franchise. Other bidders include A24 and Blumhouse.

The television company has signed a deal with Trancas International Film (who controls the Halloween franchise) to co-produce a Halloween TV series. The new Halloween series will potentially launch a cinematic universe spanning film and television.

“We couldn’t be more excited to bring Halloween to television,” said Marc Helwig, Miramax’s Head of Global TV. “We are thrilled to expand our long and successful partnership with Trancas and the brilliant Malek Akkad in introducing this iconic franchise to a new form of storytelling and a new generation of fans.”

Malek Akkad, producer of the original Halloween franchise added, “Trancas International Films is extremely enthused to be expanding our long-standing relationship with Miramax, and we look forward to working with Marc Helwig and the entire team in creating this new chapter.”

The Halloween franchise has released thirteen films so far since 1978. The franchise was rebooted with David Gordon Green’s sequel trilogy, Halloween, Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends in 2018, 2021 and 2022 respectively.

Every movie revolves around Michael Myers, who after being institutionalised as a child for his sister’s murder, breaks free 15 years later to haunt the fictional town of Haddonfield every Halloween. It is likely that the new TV series will follow the same plot.
