After a rather short four-week shoot, Blumhouse’s Halloween reboot wrapped the other day, though there will probably be some pickups and reshoots to come. Star Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising the role of Laurie Strode, has completed her scenes and departed, but not before sending a final tweet promising fans that they’ll like the end result, along with the above picture of her holding a Michael Myers painting.
“And that’s a wrap. Darlene Vega painted this of Michael Myers. Everybody who made the movie did so because of their passion for John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s original vision. I think you will all be very happy and VERY scared. See you 10/19/18”.
I can’t help but still be a bit apprehensive – like fellow HCF writer Ross Hughes, I feel that Rob Zombie did some real damage to the Halloween franchise which I can’t help but think about. But we’ll see.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who 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.
The film is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-wrote with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride. In addition to Curtis, the film also features original Shape actor Nick Castle reprising the role of Michael Myers. Other cast members include Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, and Will Patton. October 19th is the release date.
