Anthony Michael Hall has joined the cast of the upcoming ‘Halloween Kills’ sequel where he will play a character made famous in the original ‘Halloween’…
“I saw the boogeyman!”
Those words were made famous in the 1978 classic horror film ‘Halloween’ when a little boy named Tommy Doyle shouted it out after seeing Michael Myers outside his home and now that character will be resurrected in the upcoming sequel ‘Halloween Kills’ due out on October 16, 2020.
Anthony Michael Hall — best known for his roles in 1980’s teen films such as ‘The Breakfast Club’ and ‘Sixteen Candles’ as well as a recent role on ‘Riverdale’ — will now portray an adult Tommy Doyle in the sequel starring Jamie Lee Curtis.
In the original ‘Halloween’, Laurie Strode (played by Curtis) was babysitting Tommy and another girl named Lindsey when Michael Myers arrived and started murdering people. Laurie survived as did Tommy and now they will be reunited more than 40 years later in the upcoming ‘Halloween Kills’ sequel from director David Gordon Green.
The Tommy Doyle character has played a part in past ‘Halloween’ movies, most notably in the 1995 film ‘Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers’ when Paul Rudd portrayed the boy who survived the boogeyman. Now Hall will take up the role in the reset ‘Halloween’ universe after the most recent reboot essentially ignored every sequel film ever made and served as a direct link to the original film from 1978.
Now that story will carry on with two more sequels being filmed back to back — ‘Halloween Kills’ due out in 2020 and then ‘Halloween Ends’ due out in 2021.
