News: Andi Matichak Cast As Young Lead In Halloween

So far, we knew that Jamie Lee Curtis was returning to the Halloween franchise as Laurie Strode, with the rest of sequels being ignored. We also knew that Judy Greer would be playing Karen Strode, Laurie’s daughter. Now, he have some more casting news. According to the site Tracking Board, Andi Matichak (Blue Bloods) has been cast in what is considered the coveted role as the film’s young lead. The site says:

“Matichak is believed to be playing Greer’s daughter and Curtis’ granddaughter, and it seems safe to assume she’ll be put in harm’s way upon crossing paths with Michael Myers.”

Danny McBride and David Gordon Green co-wrote the script, with Green directing and John Carpenter serving as an executive producer and possibly composing the score. It is being produced by Trancas International Films, Blumhouse Productions, and Miramax. Malek Akkad is producing for Trancas and Jason Blum is producing for Blumhouse. Universal Pictures will release the film on October 19, 2018.  

“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”
