The role of Michael Myers has been cast in the upcoming Halloween remake/reboot/semi-sequel currently in the works at Blumhouse—and, no, it’s not Michael Cera! The folks at Bloody Disgusting got the exclusive, and the actor donning the fish-belly white latex mask is none other than Nick Castle, the primary actor who portrayed Myers in John Carpenter’s original Halloween, released in 1978. But wait—there’s more!
Bloody Disgusting was also able to confirm that stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney has also been cast to play Myers! Also coming on board is Academy Award-winning make-up and VFX artist, Christopher Nelson (Suicide Squad, Deadpool, Sin City, Kill Bill Vol. 1 and 2)!
