Halloween Kills Begins Shooting This Week in North Carolina

Michael Myers can’t be kept down for long as Halloween Kills is set to begin filming this week. This movie will serve as a sequel to last year’s Halloween, which very successfully revamped the iconic slasher franchise that was first introduced to the world by the legendary John Carpenter in 1978.


The entire core creative team is coming back for this one, which is just the beginning, as this will be shooting back-to-back with Halloween Ends, the third and final chapter of this horror saga.


According to a report from a local news outlet, filming will begin on Thursday, September 12 in Wilmington, North Carolina in the Port City area. Not much is known about the plot of the upcoming sequels and this particular report doesn’t offer much in the way of specific details, only that some “news reporter dialogue” will be filmed, information which came from the film permit application. But once the cameras start rolling we’re likely to learn some more, as Blumhouse Productions will surely make some sort of official announcement, given the hit this is poised to be.

Director David Gordon Green returns in the director’s chair, working from a script he co-wrote with Danny McBride, very much in the same way the first movie in this new trilogy came together. Both Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends were written ahead of filming. Green and McBride teamed with Scott Teems to help share the workload. Jamie Lee Curtis will once again return as Laurie Strode, with original Michael Myers actor Nick Castle also returning. Though, he mostly served as a consultant last time, with James Jude Courtney putting on the mask and doing the dirty work.
