We are officially halfway to Halloween, but today everyone is talking about the new Halloween movie thanks to the first official poster being released. To top it off, Laurie Strode herself, Jamie Lee Curtis revealed during a conversation with Yahoo that horror fans are “… gonna love this movie.”
I’ve seen a trailer and I’ve seen some footage, and it’s terrifying,” Curtis told the site. “They went full-tilt boogeyman. And I’ve never said that in my life, and I will say full-tilt boogeyman for the rest of the year as I go around talking about this.”
Curtis also mentioned what she though title of the movie should’ve been.
There was the idea of, ‘What do you call it?’ If I had had my druthers, I probably would’ve called it Halloween Retold. Because it’s being retold. It’s the original story in many, many, many ways. Just retold 40 years later with my granddaughter.”
In the film, directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride, “Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter. Andi Matichak plays the role of Laurie Strode’s granddaughter and Judy Greer’s daughter Allyson. Nick Castle reprises his role of Michael Myers, with stunt actor James Jude Courtney who also will play Michael Myers. Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Marvel’s “Runaways”), Miles Robbins (My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound), and Drew Scheid (“Stranger Things”) co-star.
Michael comes home October 19, 2018.
