We first met the iconic silent killer Michael Myers back in 1978. John Carpenter’s masked creation has stalked Haddonfield, Il, our dreams, and our Halloweens ever since. After 40 years, Michael Myers, often referred to as “The Shape”, is coming home. Nick Castle, the man who originally wore the white mask, is returning to the role for the upcoming 2018 film, Bloody-Disgusting reports. While Castle will be “The Shape”, James Jude Courtney will be doing the stunts for the role.
There’s more. Academy Award-winning VFX and make-up artist Christopher Nelson (Suicide Squad, Deadpool) has signed on for the David Gordon Green-directed film written by Danny McBride.
We have previously reported that the film, which picks up 40 years after the original, will act as if the other sequels never existed. Jamie Lee Curtis will be reprising her role as Laurie Strode with Judy Greer cast as her daughter and Andi Matichak playing Laurie’s granddaughter.
John Carpenter will consult, and executive produce the film. He will also create the score. Halloween will open in theaters on Friday, October 19, 2018.
