Don't lose hope if you haven't heard from the agency casting extras for the new "Halloween" movie reportedly being shot in Charleston — applications are still being accepted, and filming is now expected to start in mid-January.
The movie’s title isn’t listed in the updated ad for extras, but it’s been previously reported that “Halloween” would be filmed in Charleston with stars Jamie Lee Curtis and Judy Greer. The original ads were posted on on www.filmsc.com and on Tona B. Dahlquist Casting on Facebook.
The movie’s release date is Oct. 19, 2018.
The 1978 movie’s director, John Carpenter — who is listed as an executive producer of the new film at IMDB.com — told Stereogum that the new “Halloween” movie is an alternate reality that will pick up after the first film, pretending that none of the other films were made.
Never miss a local story.
Tona B. Dahlquist Casting says extras of all races and types are still needed — children through seniors.
Agents also are looking for real police officers, EMTs, nurses, CSI investigators, photographers and a coroner.
More information will be announced next month about the need for stand-ins, photo doubles, special looks or skills, the most recent Facebook post says.
