Nick Castle is taking “shape” once again.
The actor who played the original Shape (aka Michael Myers) in the 1978 horror classic Halloween will come full circle in this fall’s final installment, Halloween Ends. Actually, fans will see and hear Castle in the film.
Not only has Castle recorded his ominous breathing for Halloween Ends (check out the Twitter post on this page), but the actor will appear on screen–maskless this time. “By the way,” Castle revealed, “I’m going to be in the new one–but I won’t be in the mask. You’ll see me, you’ll see this face. For the first time on camera, the actual face of Nicholas Castle.”

The R-rated Halloween Ends–directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier–is set four years after Halloween Kills, when Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) “is living with her granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) and is finishing her memoir,” according to the synopsis.
Michael Myers has apparently disappeared, and Laurie has decided to “liberate herself from fear and rage–and embrace life.” But when a young man, Corey Cunningham (Rohan Campbell), “is accused of killing a boy he was babysitting, it ignites a cascade of violence and terror that forces Laurie to finally confront the evil she can’t control–once and for all.”
The film–which lands in theaters Oct. 14–also stars James Jude Courtney, Will Patton, Kyle Richards, Omar Dorsey and Michael O’Leary.
