When I tweeted about it back in late June, Shatner himself retweeted my post with the following message: News to me. 🙄 https://t.co/eDnYQQQs8X — William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) June 29, 2018 Blumhouse and co, here’s your opportunity to reach out to the man on social media. A few months have passed since the producer mentioned wanting Shatner to make a cameo appearance in the new Halloween movie. What’s the latest? Well, Akkad was asked whether or not the “Star Trek” icon has ever acknowledged his association with Michael Myers. “Not to me directly, and from what I hear he doesn’t really acknowledge it.” Akkad on reaching out once again: “I think he makes light of it. We actually have one of the original impressions of Shatner in our office in L.A., so obviously we’re really grateful to him, and in certain ways we’ve tried to reach out to him [to] maybe do an appearance,” Akkad said. “Lord know he’s busy enough with Star Trek stuff… but you never know.” 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 produced the film 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.
