“Everybody who made the movie did so because of their passion for John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s original vision.”
Filming just wrapped on director David Gordon Green’s Halloween, a 40-years-later sequel to John Carpenter’s original classic that puts Jamie Lee Curtis back in the role that put the actress on the map early in her career: longtime survivor Laurie Strode, of course.
Curtis seems to have a whole lot of faith in the project, which will essentially serve to wipe Strode’s demise in Halloween: Resurrection off the slate completely.
“I think you will all be very happy and VERY scared,” Jamie Lee Curtis just wrote over on Instagram, addressing the franchise’s most hardcore fans.
Michael returns home on October 19, 2018.
And that’s a wrap. Darlene Vega painted this portrait of Michael Myers. A fitting last tableau while shooting @halloweenmovie #halloweenmovie Everybody who made the movie did so because of their passion for John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s original vision.

Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter, while Andi Matichak 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.
Nick Castle will return to the role of Michael Myers, while stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers!
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.”
