Fans can look forward to revisiting Smith’s Grove Sanitarium, the asylum Michael Myers escaped from in 1978, when Blumhouse’s Halloween hits theaters this October. This assumption is based on the fact that the production, currently filming in South Carolina, just put out a casting call looking for actors to play “criminally insane” characters.
Per Dark Universe:
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.”
In addition to Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle, the actors who played Laurie Strode and The Shape respectively in John Carpenter’s Halloween, the cast of the reboot also includes Will Patton, Judy Greer, Ginny Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, Drew Scheid, and Andi Matichak. The FX team includes Christopher Nelson and Vincent Van Dyke. The film is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-scribed with Danny McBride.
Blumhouse aims to release Halloween on October 19th, just in time to coincide with the original Halloween’s 40th Anniversary. We don’t have an official artwork or a trailer yet, but we’ll bring you additional news as details emerge. Stay tuned!
