Jamie Lee Curtis shares BTS photo from her first day on Halloween Kills
Jamie Lee Curtis has shared a new behind-the-scenes photo from the set of the already in-production Halloween Kills as reprises her iconic Laurie Strode character. You can check out the full photo and post now below!
It was recently announced that Haddonfield Memorial Hospital will be returning to the new canon with Anthony Michael Hallset to 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.
Both films will be based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill and will be directed by David Gordon Green and produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Blum, and Bill Block. Carpenter, McBride, Green executive produce alongside Jamie Lee Curtis, Jeanette Volturno and Couper Samuelson.
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.
