The film, directed by David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride centers on Laurie’s final fight with her deranged brother.
“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
Joining her in the film, will be Judy Greer as Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter, and Andi Matichak – who will be playing the granddaughter of Laurie.
In a special 40th anniversary tribute – Nick Castle will return to the role of Michael Myers, with stunt performer and actor James Jude Courtney doing some of the ‘heavier’ stunt-work.
My big question is…. can October come any sooner?
Michael returns to Haddonfield on October 19th, 2018.
