Hot off the heels of the news that Nick Castle will be reprising his role as The Shape in Halloween 2018, James Jude Courtney has also been cast as Michael Myers.
The stunt actor hasn’t appeared in any film since 2002’s The Gray in Between, but has previously had roles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Babylon 5, he will be joined by new cast members Judy Greer and Andi Matichak as Laurie’s daughter and granddaughter.
Halloween 2018 will re-unite Castle with Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode and John Carpenter back on board as Producer and Composer.
This news certainly makes things interesting as there is the possibility of seeing two versions of Myers in the film, whether it is 40 years ago and a present Myers.
The movie starts filming in January in Charleston, directed by David Gordon Green and presented by Blumhouse.
