Season Of The Witch Star Would Love A Cameo In The Halloween Sequels

As a standalone picture that exists in its own independent continuity, Halloween III: Season of the Witch is something of an anomaly in the popular slasher series, so it only figures that it remains one of the franchise’s most divisive entries. But while some fans will tell you that it’s just not a Halloween movie without Michael Myers, the 1982 film certainly has its share of defenders, many of whom would surely appreciate a callback in the upcoming Halloween Kills or Halloween Ends.

Last year’s Halloween already paid tribute to Tommy Lee Wallace’s cult film with the inclusion of several Silver Shamrock masks, but if David Gordon Green wants to go one better for the sequels, Season of the Witch star Tom Atkins has said that he’d be game for a cameo.

Speaking to ComicBook.com, the actor said that he’d welcome the opportunity to reunite with Laurie Strode actress Jamie Lee Curtis:

“I would love to do a cameo in one of the new ones, I’d jump right in that. I would love to do that. I haven’t seen Jamie [Lee Curtis recently]. A lot of people think, ‘Oh my God, all you Hollywood people live on the same block, and you see each other all the time.’ And we don’t. But she and I, we did see each other about four or five years ago in Indianapolis, where she did a convention as a fundraiser for the [Los Angeles Children’s Hospital]. And it was great seeing her again. And it was really easy and nice being around her.”

Though Season of the Witch is the first Halloween movie not to feature Curtis (uncredited voice work aside), she and Atkins had previously worked together on John Carpenter’s 1980 film The Fog.

Speaking of returning players, Atkins also relayed word that Sheriff Leigh Brackett actor Charles Cyphers might be coming back for Green’s sequels:

“I think Chuck is going to be in this next one. He was in a bunch of those early ones, the original and a bunch thereafter. So he’s going to be in it. I would love to do it. But [the filmmakers], so far, they haven’t jumped out at me.”

From the sound of things, Season of the Witch fans shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet about the possibility of an Atkins cameo, though we surely can’t rule it out at this point. After all, between the return of Curtis and the film’s many nods to the previous sequels, Green’s first Halloween movie certainly wasn’t above providing a little fan service.

With that in mind, we can expect plenty more callbacks and Easter eggs when Halloween Kills hits theaters on October 16th, 2020, followed by Halloween Ends on October 15th, 2021.
