Production on Halloween Endsthe third and final film in director David Gordon Green’s Halloween revival trilogy, has officially wrapped.
On Instagram, Halloween Ends co-producer Ryan Turek shared a warmly lit behind-the-scenes photo taken on an outdoor bridge set during sunset. “Last night of shooting,” he wrote. “A wrap on our Halloween trilogy. Incredible trip. Amazing cast, amazing crew. While we obviously have post-production ahead of us, it’s still an emotional night.” Turek’s post comes a little over two weeks after Halloween Ends star Jamie Lee Curtis announced that she had wrapped her part in the film.
Set for release later this year on Oct. 14, Halloween Ends serves as a direct follow-up to 2018’s Halloween and 2021’s Halloween Kills. Chronicling a new spree of murders committed by Michael Myers, 2018’s Halloween itself served as a direct sequel to director John Carpenter’s 1978 film of the same name — ignoring all other sequel and reboot films released in the interim. The revival trilogy sees Curtis reprise her beloved role of Laurie Strode, the franchise’s original protagonist, who seeks to put an end to Michael’s reign of terror once and for all.
Curtis originally portrayed Laurie in 1978’s Halloween. Prior to 2018’s Halloweenshe reprized the role in 1981’s Halloween II1998’s Halloween H20: 20 Years Later and 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection, all of which are non-canon to Green’s revival timeline. Speaking of alternate continuities, Laurie was also played by Scout Taylor-Compton in director Rob Zombie’s Halloween reboot duology.
Where’s Green’s Halloween and Halloween Kills take place on the same night in 2018, Halloween Ends jumps forward to 2022. As such, the film will directly address the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. “I would say that Halloween Ends is a more intimate movie where we were able to heal some of the aftermath of the chaos,” Green told den of geek last year. “So some of the characters… will have processed the insanity of the circus of the massacre of 2018. And not only that, but they’ve also processed the world as it’s spun so wildly in the last four years. In a lot of ways, it’s a coming of age story.”
Halloween Kills slashes its way into theaters on Oct. 14.
