While fans are patiently waiting for the first official trailer for Halloween Kills, the sequel to 2018’s Halloween, James Jude Courtney who is set to reprise his role as Michael Myers has teased that the upcoming film has “pumped up the volume” regarding the violence and intensity.
“We have to make the natural progression from 1978 to 2018 to Halloween Kills – the ante has be upped,” Courtney said whilst talking to Pop Culture With Pat. “The ticking bomb has to be more intense. Otherwise, we’re just doing what we’ve done before. We pumped up the volume on this one.”
“We’ve progressed late into the night, and now that everybody realizes what the stakes are…it’s reaching a head. It’s [the 2018 film] on speed,” Courtney continued.
Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green from a script by Green and Danny McBride and sees Jamie Lee Curtis (Laurie Strode) Judy Greer (Karen), Andi Matichak (Allyson), Jibrail Nantambu (Julian), Kyle Richards (Lindsey Wallace), Nancy Stephens (Nurse Marion), Charles Cyphers (Sheriff Brackett) and Nick Castle and James Jude Courtney (The Shape) all reprising their roles, while new additions include Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone) as Tommy Doyle and Robert Longstreet (The Haunting of Hill House) as Lonnie Elam.
