Michael Myers is going to have no shortage of familiar faces to terrorize in his next cinematic go-around.
Vulture reported and Halloween franchise goddess Jamie Lee Curtis confirmed via Twitter that Kyle Richards will be reprising her role of Lindsey Wallace from 1978’s Halloween for upcoming sequel Halloween Kills. For what it’s worth, the “KyleRichards18” that Curtis tagged in the announcement is most certainly not the actress Kyle Richards. Best not click on that in a work setting.
Richards’ Lindsey Wallace is one half of the pair of kids, along with Tommy Doyle, who finds herself in the care of uber babysitter Laurie Strode (Curtis) in the original Halloween. It was announced earlier this week that Anthony Michael Hall would be reprising the role of Tommy Doyle for Halloween Kills as well.
Thanks to Halloween H20 and the 2007 Rob Zombie remake, the Halloween continuity is a bit of a mess, but the character of Lindsey Wallace has popped up a couple of times in it. Lindsey had a brief cameo in Halloween II and the character popped up again in Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers as a teenager. Halloween Kills will be the first time Richards has returned to the franchise. Richards has been a cast member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills since 2010 and remains the only original cast member on the show.
David Gordon Green will be directing the back-to-back sequels — Halloween Kills and Halloween Ends. Kills was written by Green, McBride, and Scott Teems, while Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan, and Chris Bernier penned Ends. Malek Akkad, Jason Blum, and Bill Block will produce. John Carpenter and Jamie Lee Curtis return as exec producers as well.
Halloween Kills premieres on Oct. 16, 2020 and will be followed by Halloween Ends on Oct. 15, 2021.
