One of the more anticipated horror films to hit next year is Halloween Kills, the next installment for the iconic Halloween franchise and its murderous lead villain Michael Myers. As this year slowly makes its way to the fall season, production continues on Halloween Kills. Now that casting has been an undergoing process, the film is finally prepared to begin shooting.
It’s been revealed that Halloween Kills will be filming this week in North Carolina, taking advantage of this year’s fall season for the production. The movie will once again be directed by David Gordon Green, and fans are hopeful that it will live up to the standards set by Halloween 2018 if not bring them up a little higher.
After all, this new installment can even be considered more of a direct sequel than the previous film. Halloween Kills will be bringing back a multitude of familiar characters from the original Halloween. This includes Tommy Doyle now played by Anthony Michael Green, Lindsey Wallace once more played by Kyle Richards, and even Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam.
Of course, Halloween Kills will also be bringing back scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis herself as Laurie Strode, the babysitter-turned-vigilante In last year’s hit film. Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney will also be reappearing, both contributing their dual roles in bringing the notoriously bloodthirsty Michael Myers back on the big screen.
While the main plot details still haven’t been revealed for the new installment, it’s sure to be a solid entry in the long-running franchise. It sounds like David Gordon Green and Danny McBride were eager to wait and test the reception of Halloween 2018 before diving straight into the sequel – and now with a better understanding of that film’s flaws and strengths, they’re sure to figure out the best ways in moving forward when filming Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.
Halloween Kills will be hitting theaters on October 16, 2020.
