Yesterday EW gave us the fist full look at Halloween 2018’s Michael Myers. Check out the image below and excerpts from their interviews with Jamie Lee Curtis and the films director David Green.
Halloween will be released on October 19, 2018
“What I loved is that it surgically excises all of that dead tissue,” Curtis says of the script for the new Halloween, which was written by Danny McBride, Jeff Fradley, and the film’s director, David Gordon Green. “This is growing from just that original movie, 40 years later. There may be people who love the other movies, great — [they have] zero relevance to this story.”
Green’s Halloween doesn’t entirely ignore the other sequels.
“This film isn’t one to narratively recognize any of the films other than the original Halloween,” says the director. “But we very much enjoy the other films and there’s a lot of very subtle shout-outs to a number of things that I think the big fans — the people that know the films scientifically — will get a kick out of, hopefully.”
Official Synopsis: Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green who co-wrote the script with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride. Besides Curtis and Castle, other cast members include James Jude Courtney, Judy Greer, and Andi Matichak.
