New Michael Myers talks Blumhouse's sequel to John Carpenter's Halloween

Blumhouse's sequel to John Carpenter's HALLOWEEN will be upon us before we know it and today we have awesome news as it looks like Halloween Daily News caught up with new Michael Myers aka James Jude Courtney and held a killer interview!

The piece is filled to the brim with awesome new HALLOWEEN info but quite possibly the best bit in when new Michael Myers talks about putting the iconic mask. 

James Jude Courtney:

David [Gordon Green], Danny [McBride], Jeff [Fradley], Mike [Simmonds], Rawn [Hutchinson], and myself, we all walked off to a room to the side where nobody could see it, and Chris [Nelson] pulled out the mask, and he said, ‘Okay Jim, let’s put it on and see what it feels like. So I walk over and he puts it on me and fastens it in for me, and I was like, ‘Whoa.’ David goes, ‘What does it feel like, Jim?’ I said, (lowers voice to a near-whisper) ‘It’s perfect for killing.’ It was perfect.

And all the sudden, this thing happened to me inside. I had already created the energy, I already knew the space, but man that was like after burns, dude. And the love, it’s more than just the beauty of the art that Christopher [Allen Nelson] created when he did the mask, it’s all that knowledge he put into it, and somehow he imbued all the history, the 40 years of history and all the work that all the people have done, and all the fans’ expectations and love. I felt all of that. I will never forget the first time I put that mask on.

Like I mentioned above, this tiny bit came from a massive interview that Halloween Daily News conducted with Courtney and the full piece is more than worth your time so I suggest checking it out RIGHT HERE!
