Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
We are months away until the world will be seeing Jamie Lee Curtis return to the screen as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Master of Horror John Carpenter is executive producing and serving as creative consultant on this film, as well as providing the score for the film. Carpenter joins forces with cinema’s current leading producer of Horror, Jason Blum. Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
With the official trailer arriving recently, the excitement level is at an all time high. There is already talk of a possible sequel being made. Danny McBride told EW:
“We were going to shoot two of them back-to-back. Then we were like, Well, let’s not get ahead of ourselves. This could come out, and everyone could hate us, and we’d never work again. So, let’s not have to sit around for a year while we wait for another movie to come out that we know people aren’t going to like. So, we were like, Let’s learn from this, and see what works, and what doesn’t. But we definitely have an idea of where we would go [with] this branch of the story and hopefully we get a chance to do it."
Producer Malek Akkad also recently discussed Michael Myers age of 61 in the film saying:
“I think absolutely it’s a terrifying prospect. I mean, you can look at someone like a Mickey Rourke, not that he’s terrifying; someone who’s fit and at that age and there’s something very creepy about that. I think it’s exciting because it gives us more options and things that we can do later… and hopefully this won’t be the last one."
Akkad produces, whose Trancas International Films has produced the HALLOWEEN series since its inception. Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Judy Greer will play Strode’s daughter Karen, with actress Andi Matichak in line to play the granddaughter of Laurie Strode named Allyson. The man that played Michael Myers/The Shape in the original film, Nick Castle, will be reprising the role in the new HALLOWEEN sequel. Rob Niter and Will Patton will play officers of the law, and Rhian Rees is said to play a character in the movie named Dana.
Other cast members include Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid as Allyson's classmates. Diva Tyler will play a caretaker.
The new HALLOWEEN film is set to hit theaters on October 19, 2018.
