As Halloween Kills continues to bring characters back to the iconic Halloween franchise, now comes word that Lonnie Elam will be returning to Haddonfield.
Courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, The Haunting of Hill House’s Robert Longstreet has joined the film as Lonnie Elam. Longstreet is new to the role, but Lonnie is a character who appeared in John Carpenter’s original 1978 Halloween.
Played by Brent Le Page in that ’78 picture, Lonnie was one of the kids who bullied Tommy Doyle about “the bogeyman, the bogeyman” and was the kid who was scared to death by Sam Loomis as he was being dared to enter the Myers house.
For the eagle-eyed of you out there, you’ll have noticed that last year’s Halloween had Dylan Arnold playing Cameron Elam – the boyfriend of Allyson and the son of Lonnie Elam.
This is just the latest new addition for Halloween Kills, with Robert Longstreet joining Anthony Michael Hall as Tommy Doyle and Kyle Richards returning as Lindsay Wallace.
To be directed once again by David Gordon Green, and from a script put together by Green, Danny McBride and Scott Teems, Halloween Kills is booked in for an October 2020 release. Following that, Halloween Ends is already set for October 2021 – with that movie supposedly set to bring the franchise to an end once and for all.
