The story will expectedly follow the aftermath of the 2018 blockbuster sequel 'Halloween.' As an independent American slasher horror, the story revolves around Laurie Strode (Curtis) and her nemesis - Michael Myers, played by Nick Castle. The 2018 sequel showed a series of traumatizing events after Myers escapes from high-security confinement and returns to attack Laurie and her family. Laurie manages to ensure the safety of her daughter and burns their house's basement down in an attempt to end Myers once and for all, but the ending indicates the evil survived, and that is probably where the upcoming 2020 sequel is going to pick up from. Laurie and Myers' saga definitely "isn't over" and 'Halloween Kills' will chronicle the same.
Written by David Gordon Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems, based on characters created by John Carpenter and Debra Hill, 'Halloween Kills' will be produced by Malek Akkad, Jason Bloom, Bill Block. Carpenter, Curtis, Jeanette Volturno, Couper Samuelson, McBride, Green and Ryan Freimann are also serving as executive producers.
Curtis and Castle are onboard to reprise their lead roles of Laurie and Myers, respectively, while Judy Greer plays Laurie's daughter Karen. The rest of the cast as seen in the 2018 sequel comprised of Andi Matichak as Karen's daughter, Allyson. James Jude Courtney played the role of The Shape aka Myers' character in the mask. Haluk Bilginer, Will Patton, and Rhian Rees also star.
The first tiny teaser-trailer for the 2020 sequel is already out, and Laurie and Myers' have more battles between them for their saga to be anywhere near over. Check it out here:
