I’m not sure yet how it will play out in the film, but fans will definitely love to get to see some flashback scenes with him.
The last Halloween movie to feature Donald Pleasence was the 1995 film Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers. He sadly passed away later that year and the film was dedicated to him.
I’m thinking in Halloween Kills, Jamie Lee Curtis will have some sort of flashback of Doctor Loomis helping her survive Michael Myers in the first film.
Halloween Kills is directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Danny McBride, and Scott Teems. The film stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Nick Castle reprising their roles as Laurie Strode and Michael Myers, with James Jude Courtney also portraying Myers. Judy Greer, Andi Matichak, Kyle Richards, Charles Cyphers, and Nancy Stephens reprise their roles from the 2018 and 1978 films, with Anthony Michael Hall also joining. The film is produced by Jason Blum through his Blumhouse Productions banner, alongside Malek Akkad and Bill Block.
Before the release of the 2018 film, McBride confirmed that we will see three new Halloween films starting with that one. Now we have Halloween Kills scheduled to be released in the United States on October 16, 2020, and Halloween Ends scheduled to be released on October 15, 2021.
