Actor Nick Castle has confirmed that he is part of the recently announced "Halloween" sequels.
The two movies, titled "Halloween Kills" and "Halloween Ends", will serve as the final chapters of the slasher franchise.
Castle, who essayed the role of Michael Myers in John Carpenter's 1978 original, shared the news of his casting on Twitter.
"You can't kill the boogeyman. Just heard the news. I'm coming back," he tweeted.
Castle also updated fans with news that James Jude Courtney will also return as Michael: "Big Game James still got the torch!" he added.
David Gordon Green, who helmed the 2018 blockbuster "Halloween", will be directing the films.
"Halloween Kills", which has been written by Green, Danny McBride and Scott Teems, will open in the theatres on October 16, 2020.
A year later, "Halloween Ends" will bow out on October 15. The film has been penned by Green, McBride, Paul Brad Logan and Chris Bernier.
"Halloween", which was a direct sequel to the original, marked the return of Jamie Lee Curtis in the franchise. Judy Greer and Andi Matichak also featured.
