Forty years after the very first Halloween film terrorized audiences with the ruthless violence of Michael Myers, we're coming full circle. Jamie Lee Curtis herself announced the latest Halloween reboot back in September 2017, and details have been trickling in ever since. This project is really carving out its own space in the Halloween universe. John Carpenter, who wrote and directed the original film, is on board as an executive producer and creative consultant. Naturally, Curtis is back. And this time around, David Gordon Green is the writer and director.
And then there's that one thing that's really setting this film apart in a major way: it will totally ignore every single Halloween film that was made after the original. Carpenter says it "picks up after the first one" and it's "almost an alternative reality." Curious? So are we. Join us as we pore over these behind-the-scenes shots from the cast and production company.
