As principal photography on Halloween Kills continues in Wilmington, North Carolina, a new set photo revealed the return of an iconic location from the long-running slasher franchise: Haddonfield Memorial Hospital.
A local building has been redressed to resemble the main location of 1981's Halloween II, where Michael Myers pursued his longstanding target Laurie Strode as she recovered from the events of the original film.
While last year's revival film ignored the events of all but the original film -- including the original Halloween II and its reveal that Laurie was Michael's long-lost sister -- the location has loomed largely in the horror franchise's mythos and indicates next year's sequel may similarly occur immediately after the events of the previous film.
Filming on Halloween Kills began last month, with filmmaker David Gordon Green returning to direct and co-write the sequel after his work on the well-received soft reboot.
Directed by David Gordon Green and written by Green, Danny McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier, Halloween Kills stars Jamie Lee Curtis, Andi Matichak and Judy Greer. The film is set to hit theaters on Oct. 16, 2020.
