Laurie Strode Isn’t the Main Character in HALLOWEEN KILLS

Blumhouse and director David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills with Jamie Lee Curtis will hit theaters on October 15, 2021. And today we have word that… Laurie isn’t the main character this time around?

Green tells Total Film: “She’s a voice of both insight and reason that is trying to give a volatile community some sense of purpose in this film.”

While Green confirms that Laurie will not be the main character, she will remain the ’emotional core’ of the new film while Andi Matichak’s Allyson will become “Haddonfield’s pitchfork-wielding ringleader”.

Green reveals: “When we met [Allyson], she was a very relatable, lovely girl-next-door type of character. Allyson here, just hours later… she is, in some ways leading the charge, and is one of the more bloodthirsty of the group. Whereas Karen, who has dealt psychologically with her mother more intimately, is trying to resist the temptations.”

Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay written by Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan, and Chris Bernier. It stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak, and Judy Greer.
