Kyle Richards will join Jamie Lee Curtis and other returning castmates for "Halloween Kills", set to release in 2020.
If you loved the 1978 classic horror flick Halloween, you probably know of the two upcoming movies in the franchise, Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. The 1978 movie was Jamie Lee Curtis' acting debut, as she took on the role of a high school student and babysitter Laurie Strode.
Universal announced its plans earlier this year to release back-to-back sequels of Halloween that will open in 2020 and 2021. The 2018 version of Halloween featured Curtis taking back her role as a much older Strode, engaging in a final confrontation with villain Michael Myers, whose attacks she's still haunted by, four decades later. Variety just announced that Kyle Richards of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will reprise her role as Lindsey Wallace in the upcoming Halloween Kills.
Richards appeared as a child actress in the 1978 Halloween, playing Lindsey Wallace, one of Strode's babysitting charges. iO9 reports that the character of Tommy Doyle (to be played by Anthony Michael Hall) will also be returning to the franchise, suggesting that the sequels plan to further explore the impact of the fateful night four decades ago and how it affected every single person involved. Curtis will also star in both sequels, which are to be directed by David Gordon Green. Greene also co-wrote the Halloween Kills script along with Danny McBride and Scott Teems.
"We couldn’t be happier," said Halloween series producer Malek Akkad of Richard’s casting, "And we are so excited that Kyle is coming home to her Halloween roots." In the meantime, Richards appeared in a few more horror films as a child actress and has been a cast member of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills for its entire run. Plotlines for the sequels are being kept a close secret, so we don't know yet how an adult Wallace figures into the story. Halloween Kills arrives in theaters on October 16, 2020.
In other news, John Carpenter recently confirmed his return to give terrifying scores for both the Halloween movies. "I'm on board. Let's go," John revealed in an interview with ComicBook. "I loved it, It was a lot of fun. And I'll do the score, do a new score. That's always fun."
Carpenter claimed that one of the biggest reasons why there are two Halloween movies was because the 2018 one was a huge hit. "Everybody, after Halloween was a big hit, everybody said, 'Oh, let's do it again'. So it was easy."
