Universal, Miramax, and Blumhouse have just shared the official teaser poster for their new Halloween, in which Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode. It’s the first “official” look at Michael Myers, even though he was previously teased in the above promo shot released last September.
Directed by David Gordon Green and 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.” 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 in exactly six months, on October 19, 2018.
