Forty years after he donned the Shatner mask in John Carpenter’s Halloween, Nick Castle is back in Haddonfield as we speak, prowling around the South Carolina set of David Gordon Green’s Halloween. And wouldn’t ya know it, “The Shape” has been tweeting!
Castle will be reprising the role of Michael Myers in this year’s new film, which will also put stuntman James Jude Courtney underneath the iconic, blank-faced mask.
Over on Twitter, Castle has been tweeting sneak peeks of Myers’ return from the set of the movie, so we encourage you to follow @ncastlez for more where these came from.
Looks like he’s getting his hands dirty…

Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode in this 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).
The cast also includes Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Project Almanac, Marvel’s “Runaways”), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle, My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound, Laggies, When We Rise), and Drew Scheid (“Stranger Things”, The War with Grandpa). They will be playing the friends of Matichak’s Allyson.
Will Patton has been cast to play a cop. Rob Niter will play a member of the Warren County Sheriff’s Department. Rhian Rees is playing a character named Dana.
In 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.”
Michael returns home on October 19, 2018.
