A casting call has gone out for the upcoming Universal Pictures 2018 reboot Halloween. Filming is set to begin this month in Charleston, South Carolina and they need lots and lots of talent to play extras, stand-ins and possible featured roles. Jamie Lee Curtis was confirmed back in September 2017 to be returning to the franchise in her iconic role as Laurie Strode. Word is that Nick Castle will also return to reprise his iconic role as masked killer Michael Myers. David Gordon Green will direct, from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride. John Carpenter directed the original 1978 film, which became a classic of the horror genre. The film spawned seven sequels and a Rob Zombie remake that itself got a sequel. Universal and super-successful horror house Blumhouse Pictures are producing.
Halloween (2018) will reboot the venerable horror franchise and plot detailed are unknown, although it’s rumored that the direction of the film will ignore every movie in the series except the John Carpenter original. The original Halloween of course centered on teenagers in mortal danger, setting the template for most future slasher movies. It seems the reboot will again feature Michael Myers hunting high school kids, which is exactly the types the casting director is currently seeking as note below:
