Brackett was played by actor Charles Cyphers in John Carpenter's Halloween and its sequel. Of course, David Gordon Green's blockbuster relaunch ignored Halloween 2 and all the subsequent sequels, which does open up the possibility that Cyphers and his character could return.
As quoted by Atkins, who himself starred in Halloween 3: Season of the Witch: "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 have no idea why Atkins would make stuff like this up, but until we get some official word, stay tuned here, and stick with us!
