Fittingly, this Halloween we will witness the return of Michael Myers via director David Gordon Green’s Blumhouse remake of John Carpenter’s Halloween. But before we get too excited, it looks like the film is heading back out for some reshoots.
Our buddies over at Bloody Disgusting learned that Green is getting back behind the camera to shoot additional scenes and “the agenda is to tweak the finale following a recent test screening (without getting into it, yes, it took place).”
Does this spell trouble for Blumhouse’s Halloween? Meh. Reshoots are a common thing these days so I’m not worried about it. What does interest me is the fact that the film has been test-screened.
Halloween is directed by David Gordon Green based on a script he wrote with Danny McBride. Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie Strode as does Nick Castle as Michael “The Shape” Myers. They are joined by Will Patton, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer. Halloween creator John Carpenter is on board as executive producer and composer.
The anticipated release date is October 19, 2018.
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.
