The Halloween Reboot Has Started Production and The Full Cast Has Been Announced

Director David Gordon Green and writer Danny McBride have officially started shooting their Halloween reboot. Above you'll see a cool graphic being used for the production. Judging from what has been said about this movie since it was first announced, it sounds like we actually might get a great sequel to John Carpenter's original 1978 film.

The movie is said to be a sequel to the very first Halloween movie. It will ignore every sequel that has been made and after 40 years, Michael Meyers will return to finish what he started.

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who is said to come 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. Judy Greer plays Karen Strode, the daughter of Curtis’ character, and Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black,

Blumhouse Productions has officially announced that filming is now underway on the new Halloween movie, which is being directed by David Gordon Green from a script he’s written with Danny McBride.

Original Halloween director John Carpenter serves as executive producer, and will compose the score, while the film also sees the return of original stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and Nick Castle as Michael Myers, a.k.a. The Shape.

Accompanying the start of production is news that Virginia Gadner (Runaways), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound) and Drew Scheid (Stranger Things) have joined the cast, and will portray school friends of Allyson, the granddaughter of Laurie Strode. Andi Matichak (Orange Is the New Black) has previously been announced as playing Allyson, with Judy Greer (War for the Planet of the Apes) as Laurie’s daughter Karen Strode.

Production Starts on New Halloween Movie, Additional Cast Members Revealed

Laurie Strode and Michael Myers may be having one final showdown this fall, but The Shape now has even more potential victims to hunt down in the new Halloween movie, which just began filming in South Carolina.

According to the official Halloween franchise website, Ginny Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid have joined the cast of the new Halloween movie to play the friends of Allyson (Andi Matichak), who is presumably the granddaughter of Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) and the daughter of Karen Strode (Judy Greer).

Halloween Adds 4 To Its Cast As Shooting Begins

Though it’s still a ways away, casting on Blumhouse’s Halloween sequel is beginning to heat up.

Last month, for instance, we learned that Andi Matichak had clinched the role of Laurie Strode’s granddaughter, Allyson. That casting coup paves the way for a multi-generational story – a first for the Halloween series – given Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer are primed to play Laurie and Karen Strode, respectively.

It’s shaping up to be a family reunion, then, but of course, there’s also the supporting cast to consider. And now, with production officially underway in Charleston, South Carolina, four more actors have boarded the project. Virginia “Ginny” Gardner (Project Almanac), Miles Robbins (Mozart in the Jungle, My Friend Dahmer), Dylan Arnold (Mudbound, Laggies, When We Rise) and Drew Scheid (Stranger Things, The War with Grandpa) have all joined Halloween, and while details on their roles are vague, we

Here’s what he had to say about each (via Cbm):

Scott Lang – “The events of Captain America: Civil War gave us something clear, which is: what was Hank Pym and Hope Van Dyne’s reaction to Scott having taken this technology out into the world in Civil War? We had a lot of fun playing around with that. And we play with size and scale a lot. I love the idea of Giant-Man.”
