It looks like we may have our second addition to the cast of the upcoming Halloween reboot/sequel, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that Judy Greer is in talks to portray Karen Strode, the daughter of Laurie Strode, who will once again be portrayed by Jamie Lee Curtis.
In the conflicting timeline of the original Halloween movies, Laurie has a daughter Jamie Lloyd, played by Danielle Harris in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers and Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers and J. C. Brandy in Halloween 6: The Curse of Michael Myers. In the Halloween H20 timeline, she has a son, John Tate, portrayed by Josh Hartnett.
However, the new movie – which is being directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who has co-written the script with Danny McBride (Vice Principals) – all of those entries will be ignored, with the film instead serving as a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s Halloween and Halloween II.
The Halloween reboot is set for release on October 19th, 2018.
