Judy Greer Is in Talks to Join Jamie Lee Curtis in the New ‘Halloween’ Movie
Halloween is coming back, and so is Jamie Lee Curtis, so this movie is already unbelievably exciting. Add to that word of talks between Blumhouse and Judy Greer, and, uhh, can we buy tickets for this yet?
Deadline reports Blumhouse, the horror studio financing the movie (which was also responsible for Get Out, and the upcoming Spawn film), is negotiating with Judy Greer, star of Archer, Casual, and Ant-Man, to star in the film. No character details are known yet, but we cam probably bet she’ll be one of the poor souls running from Michael Myers come next October.
The new movie was announced by John Carpenter a few months back, and recently revealed that it would be bringing back Jamie Lee Curtis’s character Laurie Strode, who died at the beginning of Halloween: Resurrection. But screenwriters David Gordon Green and Danny McBride say they’re ignoring most of the films in the canon, which is… probably for the best.
Greer has been doing well for herself lately, and has stacked up starring roles in Clint Eastwood’s upcoming 15:17 to Paris, Driven, Richard Linklater’s Where’d You Go, Bernadette, and Marvel sequel Ant-Man and the Wasp. The new Halloween will be out by October 2018, or Blumhouse CEO Jason Blum will chop his hand off.
