The start of shooting on the Halloween sequel/reboot has been pushed back to January next year, delaying the return of Jamie Lee Curtis to the iconic franchise.

Low-budget specialists, Blumhouse, are helping to revive the iconic horror franchise, with originator John Carpenter involved in a very hands-on way, handling the score in addition to serving as producer.

The script for the film has been written by Danny McBride, alongside director David Gordon Green, and their Halloween movie will return Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode to the spotlight, with the story taking place in an ‘alternate reality’ where only the events of the original 1978 film remain, erasing all subsequent films from the canon.

Now, it has been reported that the film’s production has been pushed back – originally taking place in October, a casting call has revealed that principle photography on the film won’t start until January next year, in Charleston.

The delay isn’t necessarily a bad thing, after all it’s better that everything is fully prepared during pre-production, rather than rushing the process. There have been enough sloppy sequels in this franchise already, and fans are hoping for a lot more from this one.

At the moment, there has been nothing to say that the release date has been pushed back from October 2018.
