Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) wasn't the only person to live through the night HE came home in John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN, as the two children she babysat, Tommy Doyle and Lindsey Wallace, also survived their encounter with Haddonfield's very own boogeyman. Following the reveal that Anthony Michael Hall will play a grown-up Tommy in Halloween Kills, it's now been reported that Kyle Richards will reprise her role as Lindsey in the sequel to 2018's HALLOWEEN.
The news of Richards' return as Lindsey comes from HalloweenMovies.com, who shared the following press release details, including a comment from producer Malek Akkad:
No stranger to the genre, Richards previous roles include (in addition to Halloween) the horror flicks Eaten Alive (1976), The Car (1977) and The Watcher in the Woods (1980), although fans of reality TV may more recognize her from her appearances in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in which she portrays herself. The 50-year old actress, producer and author joins the previously announced Anthony Michael Hall (in the role of ‘Tommy Doyle’, taking over for Brian Andrews) and series star and lead Jamie Lee Curtis as Final Girl ‘Laurie Strode’ in director Green’s sequel to his hit film, last year’s recalibration, Halloween.
Said Halloween series producer Malek Akkad of Richard’s casting, “We couldn’t be happier, and are so excited that Kyle is coming home to her Halloween roots.”
While Richards is reprising her role as Lindsey, in the original HALLOWEEN, Tommy Doyle was played by Brian Andrews, and a grown-up version of the character was played by Paul Rudd in HALLOWEEN: The Curse of Michael Myers.
In addition to Richards and Hall, Halloween Kills will feature Jamie Lee Curtis reprising her role as Laurie Strode, with Collider's Jeff Sneider previously reporting that deals are in the works to bring back Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter, Karen, and Andi Matichak as Laurie's granddaughter, Allyson.
HALLOWEEN KILLS and HALLOWEEN ENDS are expected to shoot back to back, with the former slated for an October 16th, 2020 release, and the latter coming out on October 15th, 2021 via Universal.
HALLOWEEN (2018) director David Gordon Green will return to helm both Halloween Kills (from a screenplay written by Green, McBride, and Scott Teems) and Halloween Ends (from a screenplay written by Green, McBride, Paul Brad Logan, and Chris Bernier).
Blumhouse is once again teaming up with Universal Pictures, Trancas International Films, and Miramax to bring the new Halloween movies to life. With 1978's Halloween and 2018's Halloween sharing the same timeline, the upcoming sequels will form a new quadrilogy in the Halloween franchise.
"In response to the global fan enthusiasm for last year’s Halloween, starring Jamie Lee Curtis and directed by David Gordon Green, which went on to become the highest-grossing installment in the classic horror franchise at more than $250 million worldwide, Universal Pictures today announced release dates for two new films in the iconic Halloween series, from Trancas International Films, Miramax and Blumhouse Productions.
