Jamie Lee Curtis has returned to the screen as Laurie Strode, and faces 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 HALLOWEEN now beating SCREAM as the highest grossing slasher of all time, the pressure is on to form a sequel.
Speaking with Collider, director and co-writer David Gordon Green spoke out about the survival of Cameron, who is the son of Lonnie Elam, and is also the jerk boyfriend of Laurie's granddaughter Allyson:
"Yeah. There’s some ideas for him for later. But do you see the allusion to him and who he his? We refer to his father being Lonnie, who was the young kid from the original film. There’s ideas for him. There was more stuff of him and we decided to hold back and see what we could use later."
"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role 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."
The new HALLOWEEN is produced by Malek Akkad, 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 plays 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.
