As of this last week, filming has officially wrapped on David Gordon Green’s Halloween. Producer Ryan Turek broke the news, tweeting simply, “That’s a wrap!”
Heading our way in October, the hotly anticipated new sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic sees the great Jamie Lee Curtis return as Laurie Strode, with Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen, and Andi Matichak as granddaughter, Allyson. Nick Castle – one of two actors to play Michael Myers (then credited as ‘The Shape’) in the original film, not to mention the writer of Carpenter’s Escape from New York – will once again don that famous mask, sharing the role once again, this time with actor and stunt performer James Jude Courtney.
The film also stars Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Project Almanac), Miles Robbins (My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound) and Drew Scheid (Stranger Things). John Carpenter provided the film’s score, as well as executive producing.
Halloween – which director Green co-wrote with Danny McBride – arrives in cinemas on October 19th, from Blumhouse Productions.
