Original Shape Actor Playing Michael Myers in ‘Halloween’ 2018! [Exclusive]

Original Shape Actor Playing Michael Myers in ‘Halloween’ 2018! [Exclusive]

In 1978, John Carpenter gave birth to Michael Myers in Halloween, a masked maniac hellbent on killing babysitters in the small town of Haddonfield, IL.  The killer known simply as “The Shape” will be returning 40 years later to finish the job.

Bloody Disgusting learned and exclusively confirmed that actor, director, and screenwriter, Nick Castle, will return to the role of Michael Myers in Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax’s Halloween, which will be released by Universal Pictures on Friday, October 19, 2018.

While Castle will be pulling on the infamous mask once more,  Bloody Disgusting was also able to confirm that stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers!

It gets even better.

Also coming on board is Academy Award-winning make-up and VFX artist, Christopher Nelson (Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Sin City, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2)!

As previously announced, 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, while Andi Matichak recently landed the coveted role of the film’s young lead (daughter to Greer and granddaughter to Curtis). It’s a full-blown family affair!

In David Gordon Green’s Halloween co-written by Danny McBride“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.”

While Castle originated the iconic role in John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic, Tony Moran also donned the infamous Michael Myers mask in the film.  Carpenter will score, executive produce and serve as a consultant on the film.

    So far it has all the ingredients to be the most legit horror film from a franchise we’ve gotten in years!

  • James

    Ok now this is awesome

  • Yahauntas

    Damnnn this is going to be sooooo good!

  • pablitonizer

    The mask design is what matters!!

    • J Jett

      EXACTLY! i said the same thing! it’s the mask that is make or break here.

      • pablitonizer

        Mr J Jett always making a great point!

        • J Jett

          thanx pablitonizer! 🙂

      • Saturn

        I wonder what the response would be if this time around The Shape wore a different mask? Not the Shatner mask he is famed for?
        Personally, I believe a mask of Johnathon Schaech is the way to go, to actually make the character LEGENDARY!

        • Creepshow

          See, I knew you were a poser. I divulged that “inside scoop” weeks and weeks ago. You sir, are a 34th degree lying swine. Turn in your card. For your tomfoolery, you are receiving a lifetime ban from the Schaechimus Maximus stalker club. Begone you turnip!

          • Saturn

            I am a sinner.

          • Creepshow

            I’m a joker.
            I’m a smoker.
            I’m a mid-night toker.

          • Saturn

            You’re the cutest thing that I ever did see
            I really love your peaches, want to Schaech your tree
            Lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey, lovey-dovey all the time
            Oee baby I’ll sure show you a good time

            Ahem.

          • Creepshow

            I’ll run it by high command, but I think you just sweet talked your way back on the stalker team.

        • J Jett

          Saturn, if Michael wore a Jonathan Schaech mask it would make every would be victim more than happy to be stabbed/penetrated (by the knife of course. lol) by him. who can refuse/deny Schaechel Myers?

        • DukeStKing

          These masks have a shelf life of about 2-3 years tops. Unless properly stored, of course. So as much as I love the original mask, that would REALLY be suspending disbelief.

  • Cappy Tally

    …Holy shit.

  • Kane

    they really are tryharding with this idea in order to sell it. damn shame too… as a huge fan of the franchise overall (sans Slob Robbies white trash porns) i can see right through this shit and have yet to be excited over anything theyve mentioned thus far. i would have been more excited if they continued the series after resurrection. either way ill watch it and hold full judgement until then but i really cant be excited for it

  • MySelfDestruct

    I love Nick and he’s done some great directing in the years since Halloween and this sounds good in theory but he hasn’t acted in years. Granted, its a man behind a mask but it does require some acting. This feels like fan service and I love to be pandered to but not sure exactly how I feel tbh. Not trying to be a downer but I’ll say I am cautiously optimistic.

    • scott

      In several interviews, Nick Castle says he didn’t even act for that part. He kept asking John Carpenter what his motivation should be and John just said “walk, just walk, that’s your motivation”.

  • Nicolas Caiveau

    They can do as much fan service as they want, this still looks like a total WTF. They could have simply make a regular sequel, pretending Laurie did survive in Resurrection and then just don’t mention the parts they don’t like. Absolutely no need to retcon anything.

    People will be so messed up watching this movie. Between those who will think it’s Rob Zombies Halloween 3, the one who won’t understand why Jamie Lee Curtis is still alive and has another daughter….

    • Saturn

      Indeed, it could easily be retconned that she actually survived that fall in HR, and has been left permanently paralysed from the waist down, and is rebuilding her life in some kind of gated community for the elderly

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        I like your theory ! Mine to link it with HR is that Laurie suffers from amnesia and for some reason only remembers the events from H1 x)

        • Saturn

          It could explain why she doesn’t remember having a daughter called Jamey!!

          • scream4ever

            I personally think that Halloween:H20 didn’t retcon things like many claim. Sure, some of it may be far-fetched, but so is the series as a whole.

          • Officially speaking, it did.

          • John Connor

            Nope. You are wrong.

          • This didn’t originate from a “wesbite”, seeing as the filmmakers, actors, and a berage of reliable sources have all said it. There were even scenes from the script that were specifically removed so that it wouldn’t connect to Halloween 4-6. Official canon isn’t up for debate.

          • John Connor

            All said what exactly?
            Where are these quotes that you conspiracy theorists never produce?
            Hundreds of people worked on the film all with their own interpretation.

            And why do you incorrectly spell words putting them in quotes?

          • I’ve presented plenty of evidence over our encounters. You have produced none.

          • John Connor

            The only evidence is the movie itself, the seventh installment (the sixth sequel) in the series.
            That’s the only official answer.
            How you want to interpret the events, and if there are multiple timelines within those seven (eight with Resurrection) installments, is entirely up to you.

          • And the movie itself ignored the events of the Cult of Thorn trilogy, LOL

          • scott

            Naw dude, Darkknight2149 is right. They specifically made H20 to erase 4-6. That’s why it didn’t have Laurie’s daughter. There’s a scene where the detectives say they never found the body after the night of Halloween 78 and he’d been missing for 20 years. There’s also the scene in Resurrection where the crazy dude says he was missing for 20 years then mysteriously showed up to kill again *referencing H20*. H20 retconned and completely erased H4-H6. That isn’t a fan theory, it isn’t someone’s “opinion” or “interpretation” or some conspiracy on a website. It’s fact, it’s in the script, it’s mentioned in several scenes throughout the movie. In H20 and Resurrection, Michael disappeared after Halloween 1978 and was unseen and unheard of for 20 years and then reappeared again in 1998. That’s fact.

          • John Connor

            Except for all those newspaper sightings and Dr. Loomis, the sole survivor of encounters with Michael in H4-H6 (besides Tommy Doyle and his gang who intentionally disappeared).
            And let’s not forget about the Thorn cult who was ‘responsible’ for those mysterious murders.

    • I still contest that they have absolutely no reason to acknowledge any of the other sequels. Halloween H20 already definitively erased most of them, along with the maligned Curse of Thorn. If they continue from the H20 timeline, they are stuck with everything that transpired in both H20 and Resurrection (and saying she somehow “survived” her death is just dumb). Continue from Halloween II, the best of the sequels, and they are stuck with the brother/sister connection.

      Overall, fan service would be the only logical reason to continue from any of the previous timelines. They’ve got John Carpenter back, so now they can hopefully make a proper sequel to the original. It’s better this than a second reboot that erases EVERYTHING.

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        I find it less dumb than an alternate timeline sequel. I mean, pretending she survived and making it a real sequel to Resurrection. Not another reboot. Yeah, I prefer the alternate sequel to that.

        • But we already got two alternate timeline sequels and a full-on reboot. Regardless of unofficial fan theories, the timeline is already splintered. There’s even Halloween III: Season of the Witch, a film that has almost nothing to do with the other Halloween films.

          Timeline 1:
          Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween 4, Halloween 5, Halloween 6

          Timeline 2:
          Halloween III: Season of the Witch

          Timeline 3:
          Halloween, Halloween II, Halloween H20, Halloween: Resurrection

          Timeline 4:
          Rob Zombie’s Halloween and H2

          • John Connor

            That’s your unofficial fan theory.

          • Oh, not you again. Everyone and their uncle has told you the exact same thing.

          • Nicolas Caiveau

            Yeah I know this, but H20 still has enough nods to the classic timeline to pretend they coexist. Like Loomis dying “a few years ago” and hunting Michael all his life. This line was said by the cop in the beginning of the movie. If they only follow H1 and 2, Loomis should have died 20 years ago and only hunted Michael one night !

            There was also a line of dialogue written by Williamson where the brunette from Prison Break talks about Jamie Lloyd during the class. Sure it wasn’t in the movie, as they decided ultimately to make it an alternate sequel, but it’s still possible to concile the two.

            And H3 is a standalone movie, so I don’t care. When I marathon the Halloween movies, I skip this one, or I watch it itself alone. Anyway, you can still see it as a spin off, with Cochrane being a rogue Thorn Cult member. He definitely worships celtic deities, talks about planets aligning (just like Tommy in H6). Cochrane also mentions meeting a certain “Mrs Blankenship” and in H6 there’s a Mrs Blankenship (Michael’s old baby sitter) who belongs to the Thorn cult. Oh and the little boy in H2 who ate razorblades in a cake can be seen as a trick from Cochrane too.

            So you can very easily watch the whole 8 movies as a single continuity, which makes it much better to me and many others as these alternate timelines crap. I don’t understand why you hate continuity that much, it’s so much better to have one clear official continuity, like the Star Wars movies. Even the Chucky movies have one continuity ! There are already the Zombie movies for the alternate version of the characters.

    • Bill Agans

      They’re not gonna think it’s a Rob Zombie movie.

      • Nicolas Caiveau

        Some people are really anaware of movies like us. I’ve met some who don’t even know there’s an original Jumanji. Man others thought Tron Legacy was an original movie. I didn’t mean they’ll think it’s made by Zombie (they probably don’t know who he is), but they’ll believe it’s a sequel to his two movies. Others will think it’s a sequel to Resurrection. The mainstream audience will be really confused by this movie… And some of the youngest will think it’s an original movie too.

        • Bill Agans

          People like that r stupid as fuck & need to learn how to pay attention. Especially if they think is a sequel to Rob Zombie’s Halloween movies cuz his name won’t be all over it.

        • John Connor

          The thing I never understood is why studios cater to those kind of people by dumbing things down or being scared to reference previous films.
          Those people will not care because they are not capable of knowing what’s going on anyway. They are just there to consume overpriced garbage and to be with their friends that reinforce their stupidity.

  • Saturn

    All we need now is the official announcement that Johnathon Schaech has agreed to appear as Dr Loomis – to show horror cinema how to make the character ICONIC.
    He could make the character legendary….

    • Jamie Fretwell

      Who??! and he is way too young

    • J Jett

      um….he COULD make the character legendary???????
      my my my what little faith you have in our master, our God Schaech.
      say it with me now…..HE WITHOUT A DOUBT WILL MAKE THE CHARACTER LEGENDARY! 🙂

      • Saturn

        It’s okay J, I used the term could purposely to weed out those who don’t have the one True faith.
        You passed the test and will be rewarded by upgrading to 4th degree initiate….

        • J Jett

          ahhhh, i see how wise you truly are Saturn! is this like Scientology where i have to pay $$$ to move up to the next Schaechology level?

          • Saturn

            Oh cynical J, believing that to move up among the ranks of Schaechologist you’d have to pay $$$.
            I am offended! No, not just offended, but upset that you would think that I would be involved in some kind of scam to take people’s hard earned dollars off of them!!!

            I only accept Sterling…..

          • J Jett

            no no NO!! i didn’t mean that YOU were involved in any scams…..cough….:)

            LOL.

          • Saturn

            That’s fine then – did you still want to buy that bridge?

  • festivvl

    *spongebob voice* I’m ready I’m ready ready I’m ready I’m ready

  • Creepshow

    It doesn’t matter who puts on the rubber mask, and stands there like a dope. The premise is retarded, and it is treating fans like fools. But if people are geeking out to see this meat-wad on screen again, have at it.

      • Creepshow

        If by scary, you mean the least boring? Ok, I’ll give you that. Nobody backpeddles into the hedges, smashes a closet door, or raises a knife…quite like Nicky.

        • I disagree. Castle’s inhuman doll-like body movements, the expressionless mask, the way the film played with shadows, ETC, all make him the scariest. Aside from him, Dick Warlock and Tyler Bates (specifically in the 2007 remake; he was awful in H2) are the only actors that come remotely close. But if you find all versions of Michael Myers boring, why are you commenting on an article about the Halloween franchise?

          • Creepshow

            Why do you post scenes from horror movies, that everyone has already seen countless times? It doesn’t hammer your point into people’s heads any more.

          • As specific examples of what I mean. They’re essentially specific visual aids of what I’m referring to.

      • FREE WIFI IN THE GHETTO

        He was the shape…I’m so pumped for this now

    • DukeStKing

      Dude. That’s pretty harsh.

      • Creepshow

        Like non-filter Lucky Strikes harsh? Or, it’s the goddamn truth harsh?

        • DukeStKing

          The latter. But, I suppose that’s because I too, am looking forward to this. Been a fan of the first 2, and 3 on its own, since I first saw them in theatres all those years ago. But, I see your point.

          • Creepshow

            To clarify, I wasn’t speaking about the actor. I was talking about Meat-wad Myers.

          • DukeStKing

            I’m aware.

          • John Connor

            What’s “meat-wad Myers”??

          • Creepshow

            It’s “who” is Meat-wad Myers. And c’mon Johnny, you know the answer.

          • John Connor

            You were supposed to respond, “As a matter of fact, that was.”

            And are you referring to Halloween 4 where he’s wearing a body diaper?

    • cn0122

      Ok, so what would you want for a non “retarded” premise , and how is this treating fans like fools ?

      • Creepshow

        1) There isn’t a non-retarded premise at this point. (It’s been like that since Halloween III).

        2) If you’re comfortable with being told what to do (forgetting everything you know after the original), then by all means…Enjoy!

        • MODOK

          And yet people here are always clamoring for the famous slashers to have a resurgence, even though any originality has long since been run into the ground after 3 or 4 sequels each. I dislike the slashers for that very reason–there aren’t really any good stories left, thus the need for lame prequels and origin stories.

          But as far as telling people to disregard certain parts of the franchise, there’s nothing wrong with that. They do it all the time with various reboots or re-imaginings. Nothing says you have to do it. You can just treat the new one as some alternate-reality version if you prefer the original chronology.

  • Blade

    That’s really cool. First time since the original!

  • Will Coors

    I’m excited, kind of wished they made it that she just faked her death but either way, I’m in!

    • Bill Agans

      They did that already.

  • J Jett

    IMO it really doesn’t matter who plays Michael. as long as the mask is perfect (like in parts 1 & 2) then that’s really make or break for this film. with Jason Vorhees it’s another thing completely. his movements/mannerisms/etc. were very distinguishable with part 3, part 4 and the 2009 film all having the best unique Jasons (movement-wise/mobility-wise).

  • Alexander Howlin

    Sounds good to me. Castle returning to the franchise for the first time since the original film. Seems that they are really trying hard with fan service.

    • Or, you know, just trying to be the proper sequel to the original. After all, most of the films after Halloween II aren’t that good.

  • Finally, some good news pertaining to this film!

    • FREE WIFI IN THE GHETTO

      It’s genius

  • Nefferson Taveira

    This serves to no purpose other than fan service.

    • Why not? He’s exactly the age that Michael Myers would be, and this is a direct sequel to the original. Makes perfect sense. Saying that this is only fan service is like complaining that Laurie not being played by a new actress is only fan service.

    • Stewart peart

      Perhaps but to me that walk of Castle made it for me. Off kilter like some dead thing; single minded and bent on destruction. Just watch the final walk he makes at the end towards JLC just before he is shot.

      Gets me every time. I’m pumped!

      • Saturn

        I wonder if he can still sit up in the same manner?

        • Creepshow

          I wonder if he can still weep blood?

          • Bill Agans

            He wasn’t in the sequel.

    • Eastman420

      Its perfect what do you mean

    • Distemp

      So?

    • ragethorn

      Amen.

    • FREE WIFI IN THE GHETTO

      Yes and it’s working. ..this casting has me in the theater now…this guy is the shape. …amazing and great news

  • The_Rooster

    Love that Nick Castle went on to Direct “The Last Starfighter” and “The boy who could fly”. I just imagine him sitting in the directors chair in full Michael costume just giving the silent death stare to Lance Guest

    • scream4ever

      OMG I’m amazed anyone else with a pulse has even heard of The Boy Who Could Fly. Easily one of the most underrated and forgotten films of the 80s.

      Castle also directed one of my favorite childhood movies, Dennis the Menace, and Mr. Wrong, Ellen DeGeneres’ only starring film role.

      • A.J.

        I remember bits and pieces of The Boy Who Could Fly from when I was a kid. I remember he’s the same dude from Not Quite Human, I think.

        • Darth Kaltavius

          Yep , Jay Underwood

      • Darth Kaltavius

        Loved the boy who could fly.. great movie

      • The_Rooster

        I remember “the Boy who could fly” being a pretty big movie when I was a kid. Definitely a forgotten classic. Recently rewatched and still holds up well

    • Draven

      Too bad we never got that sequel to Starfighter we were promised some few years back.

  • MrX13

    That is awesome news! The original guy to play Michael Myers returning is badass! He and Tyler Mane were truly badass as Michael Myers

    • FREE WIFI IN THE GHETTO

      Agreed

  • Brey Compton Arriaga

    This is getting even better and better, hope the result is the ultimate sequel that hopefully will live up to the original!

    • John Connor

      Too late, Halloween II already did that.

  • ragethorn

    A 70 year old Michael Myers? LOL
    Can’t wait until Halloween 2031 ignores this movie too.

    • Khy

      Laurie will be awoken from her cryogenic sleep.

      • J Jett

        LOL! 🙂

      • pablitonizer

        it gives me Jason X vibes….

    • What did you expect? Jamie Lee Curtis is 59, and the film is set 40 years after the original.

  • lupe

    Ay yi yi… I’m still here for Michael, Jamie and John… WISH Debra was here though. She’s a very special component to these films.

    • J Jett

      lupe, YES!! i’m so happy others appreciate just how important/special Debra Hill was to this franchise and just in general. she is definitely missed.

  • Arnold #RipJohnny

    Wow !!!

  • DaddyKo

    Reboot this reboot!

  • Khy

    Next few Halloween ’18 announcements-

    “DANIELLE HARRIS RETURNS AS JAMIE”
    “WENDY KAPLAN RETURNS AS THE GHOST OF TINA!”
    “DONALD PLEASENCE WILL RETURN AS CGI DR. LOOMIS!”

    EXCLUSIVE- “THIS MOVIE WILL BLOW BUT WE’RE GONNA MASK IT WITH AS MUCH FAN SERVICE AS POSSIBLE!!!”

    • J Jett

      can we bring back Nancy Loomis (now Nancy Kyes) as Annie? i really adore her in both HALLOWEEN & THE FOG. 🙂

      • steeler74386

        Refresh my memory who is Nancy loomis

        • Larry Dallas

          Annie, Sheriff Brackett’s daughter.

    • scott

      Hologram age-reversal Loomis.

  • Jenny

    i hope they use the original knife too! and maybe the original cameras Carpenter used. this movie will RULE.

    • Tony Harley

      Lol at the knife but if they did actually use the same type of camera I’d be down for it.

    • J Jett

      LOL! 🙂

    • John Connor

      If he’s not wearing the same shoes, it’ll all be for nothing.

  • llcc1103

    Thats fine and all. But it still needs to be good.

  • Tony Harley

    I’ve never seen so many people bitch and whine about a horror icons age… who gives a shit how old Michael is?! He survived eight bullets, two more bullets to the eyes, an explosion, etc but omg old age is really gonna hold Michael Myers back!

    • johnhurschelrunion

      you are the only rational person to comment about this matter. thank you.

    • dukeblues

      I for one like the idea of an older Myers. Loved George P. Wilbur in H6 and he may have been the best one. So kudos for an older Myers.

    • Rake

      He did not survive eye bullets or an explosion in this film. Hopefully the new film doesn’t start with Myers stumbling away from the original’s ending and taking off a BPvest. If he is a supernatural phenomenon I don’t see any issue with his age at all. I just commented a day ago how Jason looked cool as an old timer in Jason Goes to Hell. Myers’ might look better all beat up and grey.

      • Adam Clifton

        He still got stabbed in the neck with a knitting needle, stabbed in the stomach with a butcher knife, shot 6 times at close range and fell from a great height. A BP vest won’t explain all that

        • John Connor

          If he’s a rapper, it might.

          • scott

            LMFAO I actually died of laughter.

      • turk

        I’m not sure how I feel about this. But if he were a supernatural phenomenon, then you may as well go full on and say he doesn’t age.

    • MODOK

      For real. No matter who’s inside the mask, they’d have to use a stuntman anyway for anything more than Michael standing around, walking, sitting, etc.

  • MrTorrance

    I figured at first that Nick would just be doing a cameo but according to IMDB, James Jude Courtney has not worked since 2002. http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0183921/?ref_=fn_al_nm_1

  • Stewart peart

    I hope he’s kept in *shape*.

  • The Night King

    The top secret plot of this movie will have Myers slapping BD posters who are slamming his return across the face with his dick.

    Personally, I’d pay to see that.

    • Saturn

      Hallowiener?

    • They’re saving that for the porn parody, lol

    • Khy

      I can use a good dick slap.

  • FREE WIFI IN THE GHETTO

    Amazing news. I have wanted this to happen and they have done it….remarkable. ..I will definitely pay to see this now..

  • steeler74386

    Awesome!!!! I never heard of andi Matichak?

  • Mr.Evil

    well fire him. he’s literally senile.

  • OneFootFriendly

    Thats cool.
    Nick Castle seems like good people.

    But sometimes I have mixed feeling about some of these remake cameo’s and easter eggs and references and name drops to better films like that makes them related.

    Like somebody who gets off the boat through an open border and starts talking isht like that made them an American.

    Like when jj abrams brought back Kasdan to help him ripoff star wars as if it gave him ripping off star wars legitimacy by hiring kazan to write down star wars again for him.

    Or lindelof and prometheus shoehorning in a bunch of references to scenes and unused art work from Alien made that turd they laid more similar to Alien.

    I dont know if Nick Castle needs the work, but if he wanted to do it for whatever reason I’m glad he’s doing it.

    I just dont like the way some people in hollywood have a lazy shtick that cameo’s and name drops quinten tarentino style is an open border substitute for actual quality.

        • There is no “agenda”. Nearly half the population is female and a good percentage of it is homosexual. Simple statistics. The only difference is that Hollywood, after decades of mostly pandering to a predominately white male crowd, is starting to realise it.

          Including diversity doesn’t suddenly make a film SJW. Hollywood, like the rest of the world, is becoming less backwards in modern years. And from your comment alone, it’s obvious that you are a close-minded straight white heterosexual male, and a rather entitled one at that. Buckle up, buddy! I’d suggest getting with the times; it will save you a lot of biased rage.

Seeing as you fuckwad Roy Moore lovers believe all teenage girls are just young pussies to rape and be forced to raise the rape-spawn, that should offend you right off the bat.

    The hype and nerdgasm over this movie is beyond laughable. I’m looking forward to the final product being a recycled disappointing hot mess.

  • Papa_spoosh

    I’m excited, seriously… but this all seems like a prank. I mean like it’s a “Hollywood has run out of ideas so we’ll have Mike Myers as a 70 year old” SNL type skit. I love all of the talent behind this project and I’m bought in, but I won’t be totally surprised if in a year Danny McBride says “oh you idiots thought that was real?” In an interview about this.

    • dukeblues

      If the character is older, it makes sense to have an older actor play him for much of the movie (sans the stunts). I thought George P Wilbur was amazing in H6 so kudos to the older actors. He was in his 50’s at the time

      • Papa_spoosh

        I definitely understand the simple math involved but all of the news we’ve gotten so far is just crazy and again, seems like someone could write the journey this film has taken so far as a skit about Hollywood being fresh out of material. I’m totally onboard and I have faith they’ll put something great together. Maybe they just should’ve shut up about the continuity stuff until it began production idk

      • Necro

        I really liked Wilbur’s portrayal personally!

  • Shane o mac

    Danielle Harris should have had some kind of role in the film

    • agentboolen

      She was in Rob’s and obviously 4 & 5. I could see them deciding to not cast her because she had a pretty big part in Rob’s. I think she’s actually the voice of one of the counselors in the recent Friday the 13th game though.

      I wouldn’t mind an alternate reality where she becomes evil like what they original teased us with at the end of 4 though.

    • Papa_spoosh

      I honestly don’t think they need any more confusion on what their continuity is

      • Shane o mac

        What confusion? If peeps can’t comprehend she is playing a new character then that’s on them…..not the casting directors fault peeps is that stupid

        • Papa_spoosh

          Well theyre definitely targeting an audience wider than those who seek out horror movie news and even the biggest of fans have been scratching their heads about what this continuity will be. I think they’re focused more on making a movie than they are winking to the fan base with cameos and I’m happy for that.

          • Shane o mac

            Okay, then why have Jamie Lee Curtis in the movie then? What about the confusion people could have with that since she died in Resurrection? Ya’ll arguments fail right there, its like its ok for her (Curtis) to come back even tho she died (in resurrection) but the 3rd most recognizable character (Harris) bringing her back would be confusing? What the f*ck ever lol

          • Papa_spoosh

            Well I’m just throwing my opinions out there, no need to huff and puff lol. I think altering continuity once is a hurtle as is… Altering it and then nodding to other chapters that you’re ignoring is counter productive.

          • Shane o mac

            So having Jamie Lee in this one is not altering and nodding? Altering because she died in resurrection and nodding to rhe sequels they igniring cuz she was in H20 and as i said resurrection …..so basically idmf your argument is if DH in the mivie is counter productive then JLC is just as counter productive

          • Papa_spoosh

            Never said they’re not? Like I said, they’re altering the contiuty already by ignoring ALL sequels and apparently the ending of the original. having Harris in a role would just make it a fan service cameo and she doesn’t exist within the world they’re operating in. If you’re going to take the leap of ignoring the sequels, Why on earth would you recognize their existence by casting a former lead??? Sounds like you want a continuation of the Harris films and that’s just not what they’re doing so she wouldn’t belong in this movie..

          • Shane o mac

            No!! I just want DH in the movie playing a different character

    • She was already brought back in the Rob Zombie films and it would confuse people even more. I swear, people complain that bringing back the scariest Michael Myers is just “fan service”, then demand that stuff like this (while others complain that it doesn’t connect to the other sequels… Which would only be done for fan service).

      • Shane o mac

        So what? And if fans get confused its their own damn fault for not realizing she is playing a new character……funny how nobody was saying it be confusing when she was in RZ’s movies but now all a sudden it will be confusing, gtfoh with that

        • The general audience would get confused, not the fans. And the Rob Zombie films were remakes. Everyone was on the same page regarding that. This is a direct sequel to the original that ignores all of the previous sequels, two of which Harris was prominently featured in. Not the same situation at all.

          • Shane o mac

            So JLC was not prominently featured in 2 sequels? ANYWAYS if peeps get confused its their own fault they just cant accept the fact she is playing a different character

          • “So JLC was not prominently featured in 2 sequels?”

            Jamie Lee Curtis was the main protagonist of the original, from which the upcoming film is a direct sequel. Where was Danielle Harris in the original?

          • Shane o mac

            your missing the point bruh, you say peeps will get confused (for some reason) because DH was in some sequels and i am trying to say how would peeps not be confused by JLC being in the movie when she was in 2 sequels and got killed in one of them? I will never back down on DH should be in the movie playing a different character and if peeps would not be confused by JLC being in the movie playing the same role that got killed off then they won’t get confused by DH playing another character im the movie

          • No, I understand the point just fine. I just don’t agree with it.

            “if peeps would not be confused by JLC being in the movie playing the same role that got killed off”

            A false equivalency, for the previously mentioned reasons. Jamie Lee Curtis was the protagonist of the original, which is the film best remembered by the public and is what the new film is a direct sequel to. With the new film erasing the sequels, there is already confusion as what timeline the new film is set in. Danielle Harris is best known for playing Laurie’s daughter in the non-canon sequels, so bringing her in would only make the confusion worse. And really, besides fan service, there’s no real reason to do it.

          • Shane o mac

            If DH played the same character thar she did in the sequels then yeah maybe peeps would get confused BUUUT i am saying let her be in the movie PLAYING A DIFFERENT CHARACTER….thus should be no confusion and i bet when peeps see the movie most will be like i thought JLC died in Resurrection in which someone will have to explain everything anyways

    • Barry Brom

      No. She’s not a good actress. She was terrible in RZ’s two films. Was good as a youngster, but no more. She’s also too old.

      • Shane o mac

        dude you are crazy and too old, really? So this movie is sposed to be 40 years after the 1st but for some reason you think she would be to old…..gtfoh!

          • Bla Blah

            (In reply to your deleted comment about IT) Once again you aren’t getting it.
            Stephen King INTENDED for the story to be that. People aren’t just choosing to see only the racism. Derry has a hidden darkness lurking underneath it’s apple pie, American dream at first glance look. It has a horror that dwells beneath. THATS. THEME OF THE ENTIRE STORY:
            The monster hiding beneath the smile is an allegory that shows up various times in various ways in the story itself (the clown seems nice but eat kids, the town seems good but is under the siege of a dimension hopping demon alien, the adults seem like they are there to protect but are under the clowns influence, the time period seems perfect but is ripe with all kinds of nightmares not limited to but including racism, and homophobia which both play major parts of the story as acts of racism and homophobia Awoke the clown)
            You are ignoring a big piece of the story in order to validate your own belief. People are looking at the story for the tale it intends to to tell. Just as people look at the 1950s for what it was. It wasn’t a pleasant time. IT portrays the time period in the way people like YOU see it. A nice sweet all American place where all the horrors are being swept aside. ThT was the 1950s.
            You can call people SJWS and what other epithets you want for choosing to accept the narrative that the author wrote.

          • The Night King

            Dude, stop stalking me. I posted and deleted my post to show a friend how whenever you post an opinion on BD that is not SJW approved, you get a bunch of gay guys pitching a fit and demanding that you think a certain way. I’ll see whatever I want see when I read the book, you see what you want to see.

          • Bla Blah

            Sure you did, “dude”. You posted a comment then later realized you couldn’t actually back it up because YOU were going against a major theme of the book itself that the author intentionally wrote. Once again, it’s not about views. The story is literally about what horrors lie beneath, like a monster beneath in storm drain. For you to ignore that shows you missed the entire premise.

  • Barry El Beardo

    *Eye roll so severely I have an aneurism and die*

  • I Am Colossus

    Why does this matter? It’s about as dumb as the “Kane Hodder is the best Jason” even though he was in the worst movies in the series

    • Creepshow

      Those Jason slapfights are the lamest things I have ever read.

    • Being in bad movies =/= Being a bad Jason

      Kane Hodder brought a lot of physically and emotion to the role (which is difficult to do in a mask). If all you care about is the bare minimum of a masked killer, good on you. Don’t expect everyone else to do the same.

      • Sorkin006

        I don’t recall Hodder ever bringing any emotion to the role.

      • I Am Colossus

        I don’t expect anything from anyone, but Hodder’s performance probably feels so good because he’s the best of a bad thing…i don’t expect people to look at it that way

        • Not really, seeing as there have been other great Jason actors in great F13 films that have also been recognised (such as Richard Brooker, Ted White, and CJ Graham). Part VII (which featured Kane Hodder) also wasn’t bad, if a bit dry in the gore department.

          • I Am Colossus

            None so much as Hodder, he’s considered the best Jason and they made multiple videos about how great he was, part 7,8,9,10 are not even close to being the best of the franchise…at all. Bar none….they are the worst… 7 has the best looking Zombie Jason. That’s it’s only redeeming quality. .sorry true is there, proof in pudding. Those movies suck even as slashers

          • As previously mentioned, you don’t have to be in a good movie to be a good Jason. And I’ve already explained what Hodder brought to the role. I’m afraid the only one lacking “proof of the pudding” is you.

            And Part VII is actually good. The worst are 5, 8, 9, 10, and the mediocre reboot. Change Part VII to A New Beginning, and you’re right on the money.

          • I Am Colossus

            That’s a straight up matter of opinion, 5 at least tried to keep the films in line with the original, and 7 IS NOT GOOD. Making Hodder the best of a bad thing which undermines the earlier Jason slashers who, Imo, are waaaay better. You can try and make it as personal as you want, doesn’t erase fact.

          • You’re preaching about opinions while waving yours around as absolute fact. And no one made this personal. You are just doing a poor job at refuting and even addressing my arguments.

          • I Am Colossus

            Lol, seen that reply coming a mile away, as soon as I called you out about it being personal….5-was trying to take the franchise back to it’s original style while keeping it traditional slasher, 6-good 7,8,9,10 crap, 7 only good with Jason’s design, and Hodder is the best of the bad thing not necessarily making him the best Jason. Not just opinion, those are facts. Wtf are you not grasping? You pointing fingers at me and attacking my opinions and intelligence are trying to make it personal, just because you have the Joker as a thumbnail doesn’t make your replies diabolical or chaotically​ intellectual… Fact again and yes I’m aware that was a personal response

          • And I saw THIS coming from a mile away. You keep repeating yourself like a broken record, often without introducing any new arguments.

            “Hodder is the best of the bad thing not necessarily making him the best Jason.”

            And it has already been explained to you that this is not the reason he’s a fan favourite, yet you continue to make unsubstantiated claims that this is the case. It was also explained to you early on that being in a bad film (such as Part VIII) does not make you a bad Jason, but you continue to hinge your arguments on this ridiculous, long-since refuted notion that the film equals the actor.

            “5-was trying to take the franchise back to it’s original style while keeping it traditional slasher”

            And did so poorly. Also, Part 2-4 were a part of the “original style”, so there was nothing to go back to. Of course, I actually acknowledge that this is my opinion.

            “5-was trying to take the franchise back to it’s original style while keeping it traditional slasher, 6-good 7,8,9,10 crap, 7 only good with Jason’s design, and Hodder is the best of the bad thing not necessarily making him the best Jason. Not just opinion, those are facts.”

            LOL! Literally every bit of that was an opinion.

            “You pointing fingers at me and attacking my opinions and intelligence are trying to make it personal…”

            Which I never did.

            “Fact again and yes I’m aware that was a personal response”

  • Adam Clifton

    Reminds me of Texas Chainsaw 3D. That was a sequel directly continuing from the original classic ignoring all the other sequels as well. It also had the original Leatherface in it. Everyone was so excited for it and then… All this news about the new Halloween… I don’t know. When I was younger, I used to be psyched for news on any new Friday the 13th or Halloween movie but after all the remakes, reboots, reimaginings, I can’t get excited for it. I’ll watch it on opening day, I’ll add it to my collection when it’s released to disc, but knowing that they’re only doing this movie just to kill Michael Myers off once and for all leaves a bitter taste in my mouth

    • John Connor

      It can’t be worse than The Last Jedi, which ignored all the previous Star Wars movies.

      • Franmon

        OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO, real snap there Morty. Great faux gatekeeping too there Morty.

    • Johiden

      Twas Gunnar Hansen’s final role. =(

  • Meisha’s Taint

    HELL YEAH!!!

    Great news!

  • Halloween_Vic

    But how?

  • I directly addressed all of your points, while you have addressed none of mine. I understand you just fine. I also understand that you are deluded. But hey, if you want to continue to repeat all of the same points over again to give the illusion that you have refuted my argument (with the assertion that your blatant opinion is fact), go right ahead. It changes nothing.
