New Casting Call for Blumhouse’s ‘Halloween’ Requires Criminally Insane Patients



Halloween 2018 The Shape

It appears that we will once again revisit the famous Smith’s Grove Sanitarium in director David Gordon Green’s Halloween sequel, which is currently filming in Charleston, South Carolina.

A new casting call went up today via Project Casting, the production is looking for “criminally insane patients” to take part in a shoot this Friday. Requirement: “1 African American and Hispanic male.”

We think it would be awesome to return to the sanitarium where Michael Myers escaped from 40 years back. Could we see an 80 year old Dr. Loomis make an appearance? Unlikely, but such a cool thought.

Latest editions to the cast are as follows: 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.

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.
