Halloween Kills heading back to Haddonfield Memorial Hospital

It seems people aren’t going to be the only things coming back from the storied Halloween mythos as the follow-up to last year’s hit reboot Halloween Kills will be heading to Haddonfield Memorial Hospital, the location of the 1981 sequel (a film no longer canon to the modern sequels), according to Bloody Disgusting.

It was recently announced that Anthony Michael Hall will also play Tommy Doyle, who first appeared as a child in the original Halloween movie as one of the kids Laurie Strode (Curtis) was babysitting. The adult version of the character was previously played by Paul Rudd in The Curse of Michael Myers, the sixth movie of the original storyline. The new universe avoids those sequels, however, as the 2018 movie picks up the narrative after the 1978 film.

Nancy Stephens’ Nurse Marion is also set to return for Kills with Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam (the young bully in the original film) and Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, reprising her role from the 1978 original. It was also previously announced that Halloween filmmaker and composer John Carpenter will be composing the score for both Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends.

Both sequels were announced back in July with Halloween Kills set to be released on Friday, October 16, 2020. David Gordon Green will return to direct and co-write the script with Danny McBride (The Righteous Gemstones) and Scott Teems. The following year, Halloween Ends will be released on Friday, October 15, 2021, which Green will also direct and co-write, this time with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan, and Chris Bernier.

Released last October to critical acclaim and huge box office success, 2018’s Halloween brought in over $250 million at the worldwide box office, making it the highest-grossing slasher film of all time.
