One of the producers for the upcoming Halloween Kills sequel posts two photo showing a behind-the-scenes images of Michael Myers holding a knife.
A behind-the-scenes image for the highly-anticipated Halloween Kills sequel surfaced, showing Michael Myers standing still with bloody hands while holding a knife. Directed by David Gordon Green, the upcoming slasher will serve as a sequel to 2018's Halloween, making it the twelfth installment in John Carpenter's long-running franchise. There are three writers behind the script, including Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems, with Jason Blum from Blumhouse Productions as one of the film's executive producers. Set to be released in October, this will be the seventh time Jamie Lee Curtis reprises her role as Laurie Strode, the third time Nick Castle reprises his role as Myers, and the second time James Jude Courtney acts as Myers as well.
Picking up where the 2018 installment left off, Halloween Kills follows Strode, her daughter Karen (Judy Greer), and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) after they frantically leave Myers to burn in the fire left in Strode's basement. Unsurprisingly, Myers frees himself and seeks to continue his revenge against Strode and her family. In July, images of Myers in Halloween Kills were released, one of which shows the iconic killer going after the boyfriend of Strode's granddaughter.
Ryan Freimann, one of Halloween Kills' producers, posted a couple photos from behind the scenes for the upcoming film. Freimann captioned the image with the exact date and time the photo was taken, also noting its location in Wilmington, NC, where they filmed the movie. The photo shows Courtney with red hands, holding what looks like a blood-stained knife, while wearing both Myers' familiar black jumpsuit and his white, expressionless mask, which is seemingly burned slightly on one side. Check out the original BTS image below:
The mystery of Michael Myers behind the mask has been a subject of ongoing debate and exploration among fans and filmmakers of the franchise alike. After Rob Zombie took a more psychological approach in Halloween and Halloween II, released in in 2007 and 2009 respectively, the horror series has since shifted focus back to original characters and tropes from the 1978 original. Aside from Zombie's renditions, brief glimpses of Myers' face have been few and far between. As for Halloween Kills, it remains to be seen whether viewers can expect to see how much Myers lets his guard, or mask, down this time.
After so many different variations and visions since the original horror movie's release in 1978, audiences are anxious to see what's next for the franchise. Adding to the excitement, fans can look forward to a slight comedown with Halloween Ends in 2022, delivering what's promised to be a more "contained" movie. After its initial premiere on September 8 at the 78th Venice International Film Festival, Halloween Kills will make its official US debut on October 14.
