Only recently we reported that Jamie Lee Curtis will return to the image of Laurie Strode in the new "Halloween", which is positioned as a reboot of the franchise, but in fact will be its continuation. Now the portal Deadline managed to find out that the filmmakers invited Judy Greer ("Ant-Man") to take part in the filming of the horror.|
While the actress is only negotiating with the studio Blumhouse Productions, but if they are successful, then Greer will play Karen Strode, Laurie's daughter. It is not known how the Strodes will fit into the plot of the new "Halloween", but it can be assumed that Michael Myers will want to meet with his sister again.
The director's chair of the project will be taken by David Gordon Green ("Pineapple Express: Sitting, Smoking"), who wrote the script in collaboration with Danny McBride ("Brave Peppers"). The premiere of the horror film will take place next October.
As for Greer, her list of plans for the future includes the drama "15:17 to Paris", the thriller Driven ("Racer" *), the blockbuster "Ant-Man and the Wasp" and the next film by Richard Linklater, "Where Have You Gone, Bernadette ? ".
Pablo Schreiber, who recently shone in the role of Mad Sweeney in "American Gods", will go to conquer space. The actor will play astronaut Jim Lovell in the biographical drama The First Man. Previously, Lovell's character in Apollo 13 was portrayed by Tom Hanks.
La La Landa director Damien Chazelle and Ryan Gosling will work together again to tell the story of Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon. The biopic will capture the astronaut's journey to the famous 1969 mission. Jim Lovell is the only one who has flown to the Moon twice and never landed on it. Lovell also led the mission of the Apollo 13 spacecraft, which was damaged during the flight, but returned to Earth.
Finally, Jon Hamm (Mad Men) has joined the cast of the series Good Omens, based on the novel of the same name by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The drama will tell about the angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and the demon Crowley (David Tennant), who loved life on Earth, but the imminent arrival of the Antichrist could end their fun days. Hamm got the role of the archangel Gabriel, the messenger of God. Although his participation in the events of the printed original is minimized, Gabriel will receive an extended story arc in the TV adaptation.
Gaiman explains this decision by the fact that once he and Terry Pratchett planned to write a sequel to Good Omens, in which there would be many angels. Gabriel is their leader. He is the complete opposite of Aziraphale: tall, handsome, charismatic, and he is dressed to the point.
The cast of the series, which has already started filming, also includes Michael McKean, Miranda Richardson, Jack Whitehall and Adria Arjona.
