Gillian Jacobs Eyed For Halloween Returns


Thanks to an article from Halloween Daily News, we know that Director Marcus Dunstan is eyeing Gillian Jacobs for the lead role in Halloween Returns and more:

Who he is looking for as the lead: “I really like this actress Gillian Jacobs. She’s known for all this comedy on Community, and yet I didn’t know her from Community first, I knew her from a movie called Gardens of the Night, which is one of the most wrenching dramas, and she’s excellent. I thought, ‘I wonder if this great performer would do that again, would like to go there,’ and I think so.”

The film’s title: “It does function as what it means to say: If you commit a violent act, sometimes you get returns. What are the repercussions of being a violent entity? In that case, ‘Halloween Returns’ could mean a number of things.”

Where are they currently in the process: “The coolest thing we’ve done so far is a couple motion tests of potential Michaels. I want to see a film shot on film. I want it to be one that stands on its own. Suspense isn’t expensive. A karate fight in a burning room is expensive. Michael Myers is subtlety and suspense.”
