Jamie Lee Curtis on Set as Laurie Strode

Filming has been underway on director David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel for the past couple of weeks, and we have shared tons of behind-the-scenes pictures with you since it began. Today’s update brings a brand new tease from Jamie Lee Curtis, who shared the first official image of Laurie Strode on the set.

You can check out a full photo of what Laurie Strode will look like in the new Halloween movie below, which takes place 40 years later.

Curtis tweeted the message:”First shot! First day. Same slate. Same Laurie. David Gordon Green directing from his script. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone. See you 10/19/18.

British actress Rhian Rees (Confession of a Child of the Century, Rehearsal, The Lears) recently joined the cast as Dana, but nothing about her role in the film has been revealed. My guess is that she could be a relative of Dr. Loomis, played by the late Donald Pleasence in John Carpenter’s Halloween.

Will Patton “Shots Fired” has been cast to play a police officer. Ginny Gardner “Runaways”, Miles Robbins (My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (When We Rise), Drew Scheid (“Stranger Things”), have all joined the cast playing school friends of Andi Matichak’s character, Allyson.

Christopher Nelson heads the special fx, along with Emmy Award nominee Vincent Van Dyke, who worked with Halloween icon Jamie Lee Curtis on the TV show Scream Queens. The film’s FX makeup coordinator is Bright‘s Stephanie A. Ford.

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.

Nick Castle will once again return to play Michael Myers, Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode, Judy Greer will play Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak is playing Allyson, Greer’s daughter and Curtis’ granddaughter.

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.

Halloween will stalk theaters on October 19th, 2018.
