Jamie Lee Curtis Returning For New HALLOWEEN Film

Jamie Lee Curtis is getting back in her Halloween costume. Except it turns out that the "reboot" isn't so much a "reboot" as it is a return to the original canon. By the time this new Halloween reboot arrives in theaters, it will have been 20 years since that movie and 40 years since the franchise made its debut. That would require a lot more narrative acrobatics, as Halloween Resurrection brought a definitive end to the Laurie Strode character, when she died in a final confrontation with Michael Myers on the roof of a mental institution. The project has the support of Halloween director John Carpenter, who wrote on Facebook, "David and Danny will write the script together and David will direct". Along with Blumhouse Productions' announcement of Curtis' return came confirmation that the sequel's release date is still October 19, 2018, contrary to a report earlier this week that said the release was being moved to October 31.

Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to classic horror franchise Halloween "one last time". "It's gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way". The actress tweeted today, Friday, September 15th, "the same porch".

We last saw Laurie Strode in the 2002 film Halloween: Resurrection. And yes, she'll be reprising the iconic role of Laurie Strode. Blumhouse's new outing, from director David Gordon Green and co-written by Danny McBride, is said to be following on from Halloween II again...and somehow Jamie Lee Curtis will be in it.

Production is expected to start soon on the new Halloween, so we should be hearing some more casting news soon. But with Curtis coming back to reprise her role, and Laurie evidently dealing with Michael four decades later, I'm both incorrect and puzzled.
