Andi Matichak plays Allyson, Laurie Strode’s granddaughter in the new film, with Judy Greer as Laurie’s daughter Karen Strode, and of course Jamie Lee Curtis returning to once again reprise her role as Laurie Strode.

Nick Castle will also reprise his role from Carpenter’s original 1978 Halloween to once again play The Shape along with James Jude Courtney as the new Michael Myers.

 The cast also includes Virginia “Ginny” Gardner as Vicky, Miles Robbins as Dave, , and Drew Scheid as Oscar, Dylan Arnold as Cameron, along with Will Patton as Hawkins, Rhian Rees as Dana, Rob Niter, and Omar J. Dorsey as Sheriff Barker.

The official synopsis: Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

John Carpenter is executive producer and is expected to score the film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film.

The new film is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay by he, Danny McBride, and Jeff Fradley.

Halloween is produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception. Green and McBride are also executive producers under their Rough House Pictures banner.

Halloween will be distributed worldwide by Universal Pictures, arriving in theaters exactly six months from today, on October 19.
