RELATED: ‘HALLOWEEN’ 78 STAR KYLE RICHARDS WANTED TO RETURN IN NEW SEQUEL Blum on the overwhelming task of tackling Halloween 2018: “Well it came with a lot of baggage. We never worked on a project that there have been this many of [laughs]. Paranormal Activity I think was the most there were only five before. In Halloween there were like nine, depending on how you count. So I think there was a whole lot more emotional baggage and weight to it. So that made it more fraught and more fun.” Blum on keeping the budget low for the new Halloween sequel: “Well our rule is… not to split hairs. But our rule is on originals it’s $5 million or less. But on sequels, we tend to spend $10 or $15 million, which is still low budget by Hollywood standards, but big budget for us. So technically Halloween, Spawn, Five Nights at Freddy’s, the additional Purge movies those are all really kind of sequels. So we spend a little more money there than we do typically. Although it’s still very low. We still take no money up front.” The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis, who returns as Laurie Strode, Nick Castle, who reprises his role as Michael Myers, stuntman and actor James Jude Courtney will also don the mask, Judy Greer plays Karen, the daughter of Laurie, Andi Matichak plays Allyson, the daughter of Greer and the granddaughter of Laurie Strode, Virginia “Ginny“ Gardner plays Vicky, Miles Robbins plays Dave, Dylan Arnold plays Cameron, and Drew Scheid plays Oscar. 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.” John Carpenter executive Halloween with Malek Akkad for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum of Blumhouse. Gordon Green and Danny McBride also executive produced under their Rough House Pictures banner. Special FX specialist Christopher Nelson created the new Michael Myers mask.
