Read on to find out why the Halloween sequel production just got delayed until 2018…
CelebNMovies247.com has learned that production on Halloween is being delayed until early in 2018.
Halloween is set to hit theaters just in time for October 31st 2018, but with the delay we are wondering is Halloween will stab its mark.
Directed by David Gordon Green, who co-wrote the script with comedy mastermind Danny McBride, this Halloween revival was supposed to kick off production this past October. Unfortunately, the movie is at a stand still.
According to reports, the movie is set to bring back Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, the iconic hero of the first movie. She will be joined by Judy Greer, who is in talks to play Strode’s daughter Karen.
What we are hearing is that there are still quite a few cast members that need to be found. This is the speculated as the cause for delay.
Movie Web reports:
“This casting delay is supported by a new casting call that went out in South Carolina via The Island Packet. The site confirms that shooting on the new Halloween movie is set for mid-January 2018. With such an early start, it’s suspected that Michael Myers will still be making his big screen return on October 19, 2018.
If you live in the South Carolina area, you could be an extra in the movie. The production is also currently seeking real-life police officers, EMTs, nurses, CSI investigators and a coroner to lend their expertise to the horror project. The movie is being shot in Charleston, and applications are currently being accepted. All ages, from seniors to children, are needed.
John Carpenter, who created the mythos behind Michael Myers, has a heavy hand in this new production. He returns as an executive producer. And he has promised to deliver a new score for the soundtrack, utilizing some of the classic music he created for the first movie. The story is set to take place years after the events seen in the 1978 movie.
The plot will conveniently forget every single sequel that was ever made. And this movie is even changing what happened in the final moments of John Carpenter’s Halloween.”
“In Gordon Green’s movie, Laurie Strode 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.”
