    Because I love all of the Halloween movies with Jamie Lee Curtis (except for Resurrection), I feel I will instantly fall in love with this new entry much like I did with H20.

      I wasn't too excited about this when it was first announced. "Oh, we're going back to the roots!" Yeah, I've heard that all before. Carpenter's involvement didn't generate much hype for me either. I'm used to him stuck in his "I need a check" type of way. Curtis coming back along with the idea of ignoring every sequel caught my attention and actually has me interested. The same for Nick Castle as I never would have thought he'd return. Now I'm getting antsy for it.

        They better have a really dope explanation as to why Michael just went away for 40 years. That's a long time to stew over and relive in the shower.

          The film officially began production today. Wouldn't be surprised to see set scouting location photos popping up on the Internet over the next couple of weeks.

            The film's cast is rounded out by Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid. They all play school friends to Andi Matichak’s Allyson Strode.

            61-year-old James Jude Courtney has been cast as Nick Castle's stuntman, and Christopher Nelson is providing makeup effects.

              Curtis posted this on her instagram.

                I'm trying not to get excited but those kinds of images are not helping. They best not fuck this up.

                  As time goes on I'm getting exponentially more stoked for this. The more photos I see the more giddy I get. I really hope this turns out well. I'm still not too hot on ignoring ALL the sequels but that's neither here not there. Stoked all the same.

                    While I wasn't thrilled about the idea of them ignoring every sequel after the original (especially given that part 2 is my favorite), I'm finding myself increasingly excited about this movie.

                      It's about ten days old, but here's some information on the new film ignoring the sequels yet containing minute references to them at the same time.

                      As we know, David Gordon Green and Danny McBride’s upcoming “Halloween” film will effectively ignore the events of all the other sequels and serve as a straight sequel to the 1978 original – including ditching the supernatural elements of the latter movies.

                      Speaking with Flickering Myth at SXSW today though, McBride revealed why they made the decision to ignore the others and confirms there will be easter eggs throughout the new film shouting out to the other seven “Halloween” movies the new one ignores:

                      “This picks up after the first one. The Halloween franchise has kind of become a little bit of like choose your own adventure, you know like there’s some many different versions, and the timeline is so mixed up, we just thought it would be easier to go back to the source and contnue from from there. It was nicer than knowing you’re working on Halloween 11, it just seemed cooler, ‘we’re making Halloween 2’. We do [reference the other movies]. For fans, we pay homage and respect to every Halloween that has been out there.”

                      The new “Halloween” has wrapped filming ahead of an October release.

                      Somehow, I've got the feeling that the persistent fans who go to extreme lengths to tie all the films into one timeline will latch onto this.

                        Interview with the actor/stuntman playing The Shape alongside Nick Castle. Sounds like Nick is essentially just doing a cameo from what this dude’s saying. It’s a long read, but he certainly has some interesting stuff to say. And, one thing I like, he seems to really appreciate the role and his chance to bring it to life.

                          I'm okay with Castle being limited to more or less a cameo appearance. Interested to see how the "passing the torch" scene will play out.

                            I was thinking the same thing.

                              I don't know. I was cautiously optimistic about this film, but the more I hear the less interested I am. Nick Castle in the role would have been something to look forward to at least. At this point I just hope Carpenter comes up with a really cool soundtrack.

                                Considering all the hype about Castle returning to the role, I figured he would play more prominently in the overall story. I didn't expect him to do any of the dangerous stuff, but there should be more of Michael stalking people than outright slashing, something Castle could do just fine. Maybe it won't matter much in the final product, I guess. 7 months to go!
