Announced last month, Halloween destination Spirit Halloween is being turned into a movie, with Christopher Lloyd and Rachael Leigh Cook starring in the upcoming feature.
Variety provides an update on the project this afternoon, sharing first-look images of both actors in the upcoming Spirit Halloween movie. Check out those shots above and below.
David Poag directed Spirit Halloween, expected in October 2022!
Here’s the plot synopsis for the “family/kids adventure movie”…
“When a new Spirit Halloween store appears in a deserted strip mall, three middle-school friends who think they’ve outgrown trick-or-treating make a dare to spend the night locked inside the store Halloween night. But they soon find out that the store is haunted by an angry evil spirit who has possessed the creepy animatronic characters.
“The kids embark on a thrilling and spooky adventure in order to survive the night and avoid becoming possessed themselves.”
Variety notes that Lloyd plays “wealthy land developer Alec Windsor. Decades ago, one Halloween night, Windsor disappeared without a trace and ever since his cursed spirit is said to haunt the town each year on October 31 for one hour.”
Donavan Colan (“Zoe”), Dylan Frankel (“Raven’s Home”), Jaiden Smith (“Blue Bloods”) and Marissa Reyes (“Raven’s Home”) will also star in Spirit Halloween: The Movie.
The film comes from Strike Back Studios, Hideout Pictures and Particular Crowd. “One of the reasons I immediately connected with the script is it is very much inspired by some of my favorite kid adventure films growing up from ‘The Goonies,’ ‘Gremlins,’ ‘Monster Squad’ and so many great films made by Amblin Entertainment,” said Noor Ahmed, president of Strike Back.
