On Friday, we'll see the first trailer released for the new Halloween. Until then, USA Today has shared the first photos that give us a better look at Michael Myers and Laurie Strode in the new movie. 

In Halloween, which is expected to be a sequel to John Carpenter's 1978 masterpiece, Jamie Lee Curtis returns as Laurie for one final showdown with Michael Myers, and she won't be the only Strode going up against The Shape, as Judy Greer and Andi Matichak will play Laurie's daughter and granddaughter, respectively. Also featured in the cast is Will Patton, who will play a police officer, as well as Ginny Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid, who will play the friends of the teenaged Allyson.

Filmmaker and actor Nick Castle, who played the masked version of Michael Myers in John Carpenter's Halloween, will reprise his role as Michael Myers in the new movie, with James Jude Courtney also cast in the iconic role.

Slated for an October 19th, 2018 release from Universal Pictures, the new Halloween movie is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride. Master of Horror John Carpenter executive produces and is expected to compose the score for the latest entry in the Halloween franchise. We'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed.
