Halloween: In John Carpenter's classic fright flick Halloween, the role of serial killer Michael Myers, identified in the closing credits as The Shape, was portrayed by Nick Castle (above). With production gearing up for a new, followup movie under the direction of David Gordon Green, we now hear that Castle will reprise the iconic role. Andi Matichak will star, along with Judy Greer as her mother and Jamie Lee Curtis as her grandmother, Laurie Strode. Halloween is set for theatrical release on October 19, 2018. [Bloody Disgusting]


War Dogs

A Star Is Born: Bradley Cooper's new version of A Star Is Born has been moved back on the 2018 theatrical release calendar, from blockbuster season (May 18) to awards season (October 5). Cooper (above in War Dogs) stars in and directs the music-themed drama; Lady Gaga plays a rising star who begins a romance that quickly becomes troubled. [Variety]

The original crime drama (above) was released during the brief, so-called "Blaxploitation" era in the 1970s; Alex Tse (Watchmen) is writing the screenplay. Trevor Jackson (TV's Grown-ish) is reportedly "in the mix" for the starring role. [Deadline]
