The New Halloween Movie Is Bringing Back Jamie Lee Curtis

Jamie Lee Curtis is playing the iconic Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise one last time. Considering that Jamie Lee Curtis is returning, that is absolutely confirmed, since she was killed by Michael Myers in Halloween: Resurrection somewhat unceremoniously.

When it comes to the Halloween movies, pretty much everyone can agree on two things: the original, 1978 movie directed by John Carpenter is awesome, and the 1981 sequel that Carpenter wrote and produced is mostly good. "40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween".

The story he began in 1978 - about a suburban teenager called Laurie Strode who is terrorised by a psychopathic killer later revealed to be her institutionalised younger brother - is set to end next year after four decades. Universal said the 2018 film "carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film", suggesting that it will ignore the events in the 2002 film.

The announcement is a little confusing, considering Curtis' character seemingly died in "Halloween: Resurrection".

From the sound of things the new "Halloween" film will serve as a direct sequel to "Halloween II", which starred Curtis and was released back in 1981.

David Gordon Green and Danny McBride have written the script.

But whatever. Michael Myers is pretty invincible. John Carpenter, who is the executive producer and creative consultant for Halloween, recently expressed interest in scoring it as well. But it's also a very strong statement to everyone that that while this new Halloween is a reboot, it's also a sequel. But bringing back Curtis means so much more.
