Halloween is nearly here. Jame Lee Cutis is back as Laurie Strode in David Gordon Green’s Halloween reboot/sequel/continuation – which drops on 18 October.
Movies In Focus, a long-term John Carpenter fan (the Master Od Horror produces and composes), is there for this. I’ll revel in the old-school slasher vibe and enjoy a surprisingly top-tier cast (Curtis, Judy Greer and the great Will Patton).
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.
Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween will also be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception, and Bill Block (Elysium, District 9). In addition to Carpenter and Curtis, Green and McBride will executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
