Halloween Jamie Lee Curtis

Don’t say we never told you so. This past Thursday we announced that director David Gordon Green’s Halloween would begin principal photography on January 13th, 2018, in Charleston, South Carolina. It does appear that the cast and crew have started a day early, but hopefully we’ll find out more information about this soon.

Actress Andi Matichak can be seen dancing around to the Halloween theme in a generic Michael Myers mask, which was posted on the Roughhouse Pictures Instagram page.

Christopher Nelson, who won an Oscar for his makeup and special fx work on David Ayer’s Suicide Squad, has been hired to lead the team responsible for the special effects on next year’s Halloween installment from director David Gordon Green and Blumhouse Productions.

Also joining Nelson on the film is Vincent Van Dyke, who received Emmy Award nominations for Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup work on Grey’s Anatomy and Nip/Tuck. Van Dyke has previously worked with Halloween icon Jamie Lee Curtis on the TV show Scream Queens.

The film’s FX makeup coordinator is none other than Stephanie A. Ford, who recently worked with Nelson on Netflix’s Bright.

Nick Castle will once again return to reprise the role of Michael Myers. It’s also been confirmed that stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers.

Andi Matichak is playing Allyson, Greer’s daughter and Curtis’ granddaughter, and it’s likely she’ll be one of Michael’s victims while trying to get at Laurie.

Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the next year’s Halloween. Judy Greer (Jurassic World) is in talks to play Karen, the daughter of Laurie.

John Carpenter will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.

Synopsis:
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.

Halloween will stalk theaters on October 19th, 2018.
