Forty years after the night HE came home, Michael Myers returns
Michael Myers is back. This October, Universal Pictures, Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions and Miramax invite you to return to Haddonfield, Illinois, for an all-new “Halloween.” Today, the thriller has revealed a teaser poster that you can check out below.
“Halloween” sees the return of Jamie Lee Curtis, reprising her iconic role as Laurie Strode. The film promises Laurie’s 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.
The “Halloween” cast also includes Judy Greer, Will Patton, Nick Castle, Andi Matichak and Omar J. Dorsey.
Master of horror John Carpenter is set to executive produce and serve as creative consultant on the 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 have crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film. Green is also serving as director.
“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.
Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures and will hit theaters on October 19, 2018.
