Six months from today, the latest incarnation of the Halloween series hits the silver screen. And today, we have a first look at a poster for the film. Filmed in Charleston earlier this year, the new sequel simply titled Halloween brings back the franchise’s seminal star Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode.

The flick is written and directed by David Gordon Green with another writing credit for actor Danny McBride, whose also credited as a producer. Halloween debuts October 19, 2018. Blumhouse Productions, which also produced Get Out, is helping finance the new Halloween.

Until now mostly known for his comedy work in Eastbound and Down, McBride says he keeps a house in the Charleston area and has set up a production shop here with friends Green and Jody Hill. McBride and Hill have worked together on several projects including Eastbound and Down and HBO’s Vice Principals, which was also filmed locally.

McBride, Curtis, and the official Halloween account all shared what looks like the new poster today on IG.
