That’s a wrap for Halloween Kills, according to co-producer Ryan Turek of Blumhouse. The cameras formally began rolling in Wilmington back in September, but the team has been away and hard at work for the past three months. Check out Turek’s Instagram post celebrating the occasion below.
The official franchise Twitter account also shared its own wrap post yesterday, revealing a behind-the-scenes photo of returning characters Tommy Doyle, Lindsey Wallace, and Nurse Marion Chambers, as portrayed by Anthony Michael Hall, Kyle Richards, and Nancy Stephens, respectively. Take a look.
With Halloween Ends scheduled to arrive a year after the next film and earlier reports indicating the two sequels would be filming back-to-back, it’s safe to assume the team will see a little break before getting back to work on the next one. Whenever the cameras are rolling again, perhaps after the holidays, we’ll be sure to keep you informed.
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, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers, and Charles Cyphers as Sheriff Leigh Brackett. John Carpenter is returning to compose the music for this sequel and the next.
Halloween Kills will hit theaters on October 16th, 2020 while Halloween Ends is coming on October 15th, 2021. Be sure to follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates.
