‘Halloween Kills,’ the sequel to 2018‘s ‘Halloween,’ will see the return of Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, the child Annie Brackett babysat the night Michael Myers reigned terror on the small town in the original 1978 John Carpenter film.
Richards is currently in the Bravo reality series ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’ She was recently in an episode of Bravo’s ‘Girlfriends’ Guide to Divorce.’ Other credits include the 1975 ‘Escape to Witch Mountain’ film, and the NBC shows ‘Little House on the Prairie’ and ‘ER.’
Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle will reprise their roles of Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, respectively. Anthony Michael Hall (‘‘The Dark Knight,’ ‘Foxcatcher’) will portray Tommy Doyle. Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are both expected to come back. In the previous installment, Greer played Karen Strode, while Matichak depicted Allyson Strode.
Meanwhile, David Gordon Green returns as director and co-writer. The screenplay is from Green, returning scribe Danny McBride (‘Eastbound & Down,’ ‘Vice Principals’), and newcomer Scott Teems (‘Rectify,’ ‘Narcos: Mexico’).
Green, in an interview with Collider, gave a peek into what he has in store for a potential sequel: (Spoiler alert for the first film.)
Collider: “Did you make the decision not to kill the boyfriend for a reason?”
Green: “Yeah. There’s some ideas for him for later.”
Further, filming will begin September 16th and wrap November 8th in Wilmington, North Carolina. Then, the next (and final?) installment ‘Halloween Ends’ will start filming, in a back-back format. Green will direct once again, from a screenplay he co-wrote with Bride, Chris Bernier (‘The House’), and Paul Brad Logan (‘Manglehorn’).
Universal will release ‘Halloween Kills’ on October 16, 2020, as well as ‘Halloween Ends’ on October 15, 2021.
