After what must have been a grueling 4-week shoot, things are winding down on the set of Blumhouse’s Halloween reboot in South Carolina. Though crews will likely be around for reshoots and pickups over the next week or so, star Jamie Lee Curtis (reprising the role of Laurie Strode from John Carpenter’s original Halloween) has completed her scenes and departed.
Curtis sent a final Tweet from the set, which included a shout-out to Carpenter and a promise that fans will like the final result.
And that’s a wrap. Darlene Vega painted this of Michael Myers. @halloweenmovie #halloweenmovie Everybody who made the movie did so because of their passion for John Carpenter and Debra Hill’s original vision. I think you will all be very happy and VERY scared. See you 10/19/18 pic.twitter.com/3ZT1rfx6pD

It will still be a while until we get a trailer, but things will have to move at a break-neck pace for producers to deliver the film by October 19th—just in time to coincide with the original Halloween’s 40th Anniversary. Here’s everything we know so far:
Official Synopsis: Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes 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.
Blumhouse’s Halloween is aiming for an October 19th release date. In addition to Curtis, the film also features original Shape actor Nick Castle reprising the role of Michael Myers. Other cast members include Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, and Will Patton. The film is directed by David Gordon Green from a script he co-scribed with his frequent collaborator Danny McBride.
We’ll keep you posted as additional details emerge. Stay tuned!
