Jamie Lee Curtis To Play Laurie Strode In Halloween Reboot

Jamie Lee Curtis To Play Laurie Strode In Halloween Reboot

Calling all horror movie aficionados: Because the OG scream queen, Jamie Lee Curtis, is returning for another Halloween movie!

The new film will be directed by Eastbound & Down creator David Gordon Green, and a script has been written by Green and Danny McBride.

In 1988's Halloween IV: The Return Of Michael Myers, we're told that Laurie is dead, and the film picks up with her young daughter as the main protagonist. A jack o'lantern is on the porch by her feet.

In the new film, Curtis' character will have a final confrontation with her serial killer brother, according to Variety.

Record number of terrorism arrests made in United Kingdom in past year
By the end of June this year, 204 people in the United Kingdom were in custody for terrorism-related offences in the country. Domestic terrorism refers to activity where there are no links to either Northern Ireland-related or global terrorism.

Curtis has played Laurie Strode in multiple Halloween films. In the movie, midwestern teenager Laurie is stalked on Halloween by Michael Myers who has escaped from a sanitarium 15 years after he murdered his sister.

The film is set to be released on October 18th, 2018. 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. Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge) is the studio backing the project.

"You've been asking for updates on Halloween, well, we've got one!" It's already been done with Strode once before, when it was revealed in Halloween: H20 that she had faked her death after the events of Halloween 2, which more or less nullified the events of Halloween 4, Halloween 5 and Halloween 6.

It has been quite some time since we've seen Michael Myers on screen, which was in Rob Zombie's maligned Halloween II. Having Jamie Lee Curtis come back is certainly a great place to start.
