After completing principal photography earlier this year, David Gordon Green is headed back to Haddonfield.
Bloody Disgusting has learned that Green is getting back behind the camera to shoot additional scenes for his Halloween, which slashes into theaters this coming October. Sources tell me that the agenda is to tweak the finale following a recent test screening (without getting into it, yes, it took place).
There’s literally no reason to panic as most films, especially Blumhouse productions, end up back behind the camera. It’s a normal part of the process. If anything, maybe we’ll get some awesome extra features on the home video release?
For now, let’s all get psyched for the trailer release, which blew the roof off of CinemaCon last month. Jamie Lee Curtis again promised that the 40-years-later sequel to John Carpenter’s classic is going to “scare the living shit out of you,” while also describing the film as “old school meets new school with Laurie at the center of it… who has turned into a warrior.”
In the film, “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.” Yes, the film takes place exactly 40 years after the events in John Carpenter‘s classic!
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).
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.
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.
Michael returns home on October 19, 2018.
