Sources are claiming (under condition of anonymity) that Blumhouse’s Halloween was test-screened for Audiences last night under the title Halloween. (No points for creativity there.) Considering the film only wrapped principal photography 5 weeks ago, it’s possible the film and the title might be fine-tuned before it hits US Theaters on October 19th.
Halloween is slated to coincide with the 40th Anniversary of John Carpenter’s original Halloween. This year’s sequel will reunite Jamie Lee Curtis with original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle. Carpenter is a producer and has returned to score the new film.
