Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode in next year’s Halloween, which will take place after the original classic and disregard *all* of the sequels. Judy Greer has been cast to play Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter, and we’ve got more casting news tonight.
Via Tracking Board, actress Andi Matichak (“Blue Bloods”) has landed the coveted role of the film’s young lead. “Matichak is believed to be playing Greer’s daughter and Curtis’ granddaughter, and it seems safe to assume she’ll be put in harm’s way upon crossing paths with Michael Myers,” notes the site.
In Gordon Green’s movie, being scored by John Carpenter…
“Laurie Strode 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.”
Carpenter is executive producing the new film with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Michael Myers returns to Haddonfield on October 19, 2018.
