Nick Castle's role in the 2018 film

I read an interview with James Jude Courtney. In it, he said that he, himself, will be playing Michael Myers and that Nick Castle has a cameo appearance along with him.
Castle was was reportedly quoted as saying that he was passing the torch to Courtney.
Courtney has talked about wearing the mask. Castle has said he has seen it.
We saw a photo of a bloody hand. Was it Castle or Courtney?
We have seen a photograph of Castle in the coveralls.
My thought is that maybe Castle will be playing a victim. Possibly being murdered for his coveralls.
I admit that I am a little crestfallen at this idea. But I am glad, if true, that he will still have involvement in the film.

Already another thread on this.
