The next installment in the Halloween franchise is gearing up for release next month. And, in support of that, we have the latest trailer to share with you!
As we’ve mentioned previously, the new film will not be a remake. It will, however, ignore everything to come after the first. It’s a direct sequel to the original that picks up 40 years later.
The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and Judy Greer as Karen Strode. Danny McBride (Alien Covenant review) cowrote the film with David Gordon Green, who was at the helm. Series co-creator John Carpenter served as an executive producer. The picture is slated to hit theaters on October 19th, 2018.
Blumhouse, Miramax, and Trancas International Films are partnering to produce the latest installment in the series.
Prior to losing the rights to the franchise, Dimension was in development on a new Halloween film with Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton. Halloween 3D was reportedly set to pick up after the events of the second film and would not tie in to Rob Zombie’s reboots.
