2018’s Halloween Could’ve Had A Female Dr. Loomis

Paging Dr. Samantha Loomis

Halloween Laurie 2018

While David Gordon Green’s Halloween reboot blew horror fans away with a faithful addition to the legacy of John Carpenter’s 1978 original, there was once a time the movie would’ve featured a female Dr. Loomis.

Horror hounds will undoubtedly remember Jamie Lee Curtis’ legendary turn as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise, but let’s not forget Donald Pleasance’s integral role as Dr. Samuel Loomis.

After the success of Halloween, Green is already working on Halloween Kills for late 2020 and Halloween Ends in 2021. The next movie will be a who’s who of Halloween alumni as Kyle Richards, Nancy Stephens, and Charles Cyphers reprise their respective roles as Linsday Wallace, Nurse Marion Chambers, and Sheriff Leigh Brackett.

Still, there’s one major character missing out on the action as Dr. Samuel Loomis is MIA in this new era of the series.

Following the mixed success of Rob Zombie’s Halloween and Halloween II, Blumhouse wanted to move ahead with a reboot. Speaking to Bloody-Disgusting, The Haunting of Hill house‘s Mike Flanagan confirms he was approached to helm the 2018 movie and wanted to go in a different direction.
