Take it from the man in the mask: The final Halloween chapter will not be what you expect.
Nick Castle–the first actor behind the iconic Michael Myers mask way back in 1978’s Halloween–is on record as saying this October’s Halloween Ends will have a shock or two waiting for fans, according to a report on comicbook.com.
Castle–who has a cameo in this (reportedly) final entry in the frightening film franchise–told fans at the recent Pittsburgh Steel City Con that James Jude Courtney did “99 percent of the work in the last three movies as Michael Myers and did a wonderful job.”
The actor also visited the editing room where they’re completing the first cut of Halloween Ends and said, “it sounds like it should be pretty good. (Director) David Gordon Green will have a very surprising storyline and ending for everyone,” Castle teased.
“It’s absolutely something I don’t think you would have ever guessed, in terms of the way it’s going to unroll,” he added. And fans have another six months to ponder those enigmatic words–Halloween Ends opens in theaters Oct. 14.
Halloween Ends–helmed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier–wrapped production last month. The film–set four years after the bloody events of Halloween Kills–continues the battle between Laurie Strode and Myers.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns one last time as Strode, along with Andi Matichak as her granddaughter Allyson, Kyle Richards as Lindsey Wallace, Courtney as Myers and newcomer Michael O’Leary as Dr. Mathis.
