‘Halloween’ Potentially Casting for Fall Shoot?

Pictured: Chloe Csengery Paranormal Activity 3

We’re all desperate for Halloween news so here’s a small bit of information that was posted in the Aug. 9 issue of Production Weekly. The alleged working/shooting title for the film is Night Blade, which Omega Underground says could potentially shoot this fall in Lousiana.

With this unconfirmed news, the site was able to unearth a handful of audition videos for “Night Blade” for the role of Allyson. Interestingly, Chloe Csengery, who played young Katie in three of Blumhouse’s Paranormal Activity films (pictured above), allegedly auditioned, as did Allison Winn (“Daredevil”). You can watch the videos at the aforementioned links. We aren’t speculating anything here, just sharing what was reported.

John Carpenter is executive producing (and potentially scoring) the new film that will be directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he co-wrote with the hilarious Danny McBride.

Halloween is targeting a release on October 19th, 2018.

    i’m excited but then again Halloween Returns and Halloween 3D were cancelled a few weeks before they started shooting

    • Michael Voorhees

      yes i know this is Blumhouse but i can’t help myself being pessimistic

      • J Jett

        Michael i feel the exact same way. fans of HALLOWEEN and F13 have been dicked over these past couple of years with constant start/stops with new films for both franchises.

    More babysitters I’m guessing

  • My most anticipated horror film of 2018. If anything is going to restore Halloween to its former glory, it’s this.

    • Necro

      Yeah mine too!

  • The audition tape mentions “Putting our phones away”, so it sounds like they are going the Texas Chainsaw 3D route by setting it in present day. Hopefully, it doesn’t mess with the timeline since it’s a sequel to Halloween II (1981).

    • WondrousPoop

      I don’t think these tapes are for Halloween.

    This movie is shooting this fall.

    McBride said that months ago

    • MaxNerdcore

      True, but we were also told that the new Friday the 13th was going to be shooting soon…until they just as quickly canceled it.

  • Micah Unice

    It’s at least a little heartening that they seem to be looking at age-appropriate actors.

    • Meisha’s Taint

      I was hoping for 30 something “teens” like in many horror movies but…………

  • WondrousPoop

    LOL

    I’ve heard a rumour that this is a post millennial, modern take on Halloween, and instead of having Michael Myers it will be a GQ take on the Shape, who self identifies as Michelle Myers.
    This time the killer will be targeting Trump supporters and it will be all out extremely killary all in the name of social justice.

    The Night They Came Out.

    I cannot wait!

    Of course I’m only having a little fun – but I wonder what the response would be like if it were to be announced that the new Halloween had a female killer?
    To be honest they already had that chance in Halloween 5, which they didn’t run with. Shame really, as it could have been interesting if “the evil” in Myers could be transported into a blood relative after his death.

      Don’t quit your day job. Assuming you have one.

    • diapers

      I’ve heard they ditched the GC version of The Shape for a Maxim version.

      • Saturn

        Chortle.
        🙂

  • Halloween_Vic

    My gawdd I can’t fucking wait!!!! I hope we get some known actresses that audition as well. So this must mean that a script is done or being finalized? Man I’m so happy this might be picking up, I hope they truly bring back the roots of the original with a modernized feeling but still being nostalgic and dark/suspenseful. Man Halloween season next year is gonna feel amazing, it’s about time we get the King of Halloween released properly in the Halloween season.

  • J Jett

    i want this to happen but i will only believe it when i see it. way too many start and stops with this movie and with the F13 film (we all know how that turned out). so i’m not getting my hopes up for a new HALLOWEEN movie until it actually starts production….and even then…..

    • Necro

      I hear you there J! I hate thinking something negative could be surrounding this film! But a year is a long time. It may be different studios but after what happened with the last F13 film, even though it might have been terrible, I don’t want anything to happen with the new ‘Halloween’!

      • J Jett

        exactly Necro! 🙂

  • J Jett

    for what it’s worth here the new teaser (it’s real!) for JEEPERS CREEPERS 3….

    • Alexander Howlin

      Thanks!

    • Tony Harley

      a tv spot before a trailer??? this is being handled very messily. are they gonna put it in a small amount of theaters and then put it on vod immediately after? cause they’re not gonna be getting much money in theaters with not only the controversy but the lack of promotion

  • Alexander Howlin

    Cool! I have high hopes for this movie… glad that Carpenter has taken the reigns of his creation back…

  • Jesse Hernandez

    Anyone think we might get alittle news or something like that around October ?

  • snow&peace

    Was kinda hoping for a non teen lead. Speaking of Daredevil I think Deborah Ann Woll would be a good choice.

  • John Connor

    Please stop this atrocity from happening.

  • Carl Chrystan

    I love Halloween but I do wish that people would come up with new s**t! Stop remaking s**t! Have a new concept that I can enjoy!

    • El_Fez

      I wish they would follow the Halloween III model and do stories centered in and around the holiday, the rituals, the traditions and the mythology. That would be WAY better than seening The Shape slaughter some babysitters again.

  • Flu-Like Symptoms

    At least they’re finally targeting an actual Halloween release instead of mid-summer. This will be the first Halloween film since Part 5 in 1989 to actually come out in October.
