David Gordon Green’s Halloween Kills, which is currently in post production has officially been postponed.
The latest installment in the Halloween franchise has moved from its October 16th 2020 release date to Friday October 15th 2021 – which is where Universal originally had Halloween Ends set for release.
That sequel now moves from that 2021 date to October 14, 2022.
John Carpenter and Gordon Green released a note on social today about the change:
Carpenter also released a teaser for the upcoming film.
In the same vein of its predecessor, Halloween Kills is set to have many returning characters appear.
Charles Cyphers has reprised the role of Sheriff Leigh Brackett one of many fan favourites of the original 1978 Halloween.
Some of the other confirmed stars from the first movie set to return are Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Nancy Stephens as Nurse Marion Chambers and Nick Castle once again sharing the role of Michael Myers with James Jude Courtney.
Of course Jamie Lee Curtis, Judy Greer and Andi Matichak are also all set to return for the sequel as the surviving members of the Strode family.
Meanwhile, the Tommy Doyle character played by Brian Andrews in the original movie is also returning for Halloween Kills, but the role has been recast with Anthony Michael Hall and this instalment will also see Robert Longstreet as Lonnie Elam.
