“Trick ‘r Treat 2” is coming, Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull announced with writer-director Michael Dougherty at a screening of “Trick ‘r Treat” at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood on Monday night.
The horror anthology, which has gained a cult following since its direct-to-DVD release nearly four years ago, consists of four interwoven stories occurring on Halloween.

Dylan Baker, Anna Paquin, Leslie Bibb and Brian Cox were among the cast.
Cox, Baker and producer Bryan Singer were present at Monday’s Q & A panel (above), moderated by Seth Green. The film’s original monster, Sam — a pint-sized trick or treater that turns out to be a nasty little demon — delivered a note to Dougherty.
“Make a sequel,” Dougherty read. Then he said, “I’d like to, but I don’t have authority.”
He deferred to Tull, who stood up from the audience and said something hard to hear. But the hooting and hollering from fans signaled good news.
“Alright, let’s make ‘Trick ‘r Treat 2,'” Dougherty said.
No other details, other than new title art, were revealed.
