As next year’s Halloween Kills looks to bring back certain characters from John Carpenter’s original 1978 movie, now comes word on another familiar face returning to tackle The Shape.
Courtesy of HalloweenMovies, Nancy Stephens is the latest name to join the follow-up to last year’s Halloween. Stephens played Nurse Marion Chambers in earlier entries in the franchise. That character was driving the car in which Michael Myers escaped Smith’s Grove in Carpenter’s ’78 film, and she’d return in Halloween II before being killed off by Michael in the opening moments of Halloween H20.
Of course, the 2018 Halloween completely ignored any of the movies that took place after the 1978 classic – meaning Marion’s death at the hands of Myers never actually happened.
Nancy Stephens’ Marion Chambers is one of several characters from the original Halloween who’ll be returning for Halloween Kills. The ‘78 picture’s Kyle Richards will be reprising her role as Lindsey Wallace, while Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Longstreet will be playing Tommy Doyle and Lonnie Elam, respectively.
If you remember, Lindsey and Tommy were the two children being babysat on the night he came home, while Lonnie was a young bully who had a pants-filling meeting with The Shape in that first Halloween.
David Gordon Green is again on directing duties for Halloween Kills, with the film set for an October 2020 release. Following that, October 2021 will serve up what’s being pegged as the final entry in the franchise, Halloween Ends.
