With the next Halloween sequel, Halloween Kills, set to begin filming its first scenes tomorrow, actor James Jude Courtney is rightfully sharing his excitement with fans about playing the role of Michael Myers once again. The actor took to Instagram earlier today and posted a few stills of him in costume as The Shape, commenting how he's pumped to be behind the mask again for the next two movies. There are four images in total, so be sure to scroll through the gallery below.
Much like in the 2018 film, Courtney will be doing the heavy lifting as Myers, but the voice work will be done by the original actor, Nick Castle, who also was in costume the first time Laurie Strode laid her eyes on her nemesis. We can expect a similar arrangement for the next two films.
Halloween Kills will see the return of Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode, Judy Greer’s Karen, Andi Matichak’s Allyson, and James Jude Courtney’s Michael Myers, with original Shape actor Nick Castle also on board for voice work and to possibly even don the mask for a few scenes. The film will additionally star Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle and Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, two characters who appeared in the first film. John Carpenter is returning to compose the music for this sequel as well as the next.
