There is one more opportunity for the Halloween legacy character to confront Michael Myers.
The report in Variety says that Kyle Richards will once again portray Lindsey Wallace from the original Halloween and this year’s Halloween Kills as well as reunite with Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode in next year’s Halloween Ends.
Halloween Kills saw Wallace, the child Strode babysat in Carpenter’s original Halloween movie in 1978, return as an adult, survive an encounter with Myers, and earn “positive feedback” from longtime fans. She is so important to the film’s storyline that the writers rewrote the script for Halloween Ends in order to incorporate her in it.
A release date has not been set for the film, but filming is scheduled to begin next month. The film is expected to be released on Oct. 14, 2022.
“The last movie,” Richards said, “I saw Jamie on the set, but we didn’t have stuff together. So, I’m really hoping there is more stuff together. I can’t talk about any storylines, but I can say we start filming in January.”
“I’m thrilled that Kyle will reprise her role,” said Jason Blum, head of Blumhouse Productions, which produces the current Halloween trilogy. The return of iconic characters in Halloween Kills was really important to David Gordon Green, and he took great pains to bring back the original actors when he could.”
In spite of debuting day-and-date on Peacock, Green’s Halloween Kills, the film he co-wrote with Scott Teems and Danny McBride, went on to earn over $130 million worldwide.
