Jamie Lee Curtis Is Back for a New Halloween Movie

Blumhouse has just made a big announcement today regarding their upcoming sequel to John Carpenter's Halloween - Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode!

Curtis also tweeted about the news, adding, "Same porch".

No one knows that better than John Carpenter, who struck gold with Halloween, one of the greatest horror movies of all-time. Two sequels followed in that storyline, but they got progressively worse.

Halloween opens October 19, 2018.

Fans are likely scratching their heads at this revelation, since Curtis' character was unceremoniously killed off in Halloween: Resurrection in 2002, but in true Halloween franchise fashion it would appear that the film will be ignoring the continuity of numerous sequels in favor of telling its own story. This movie has a chance to fix what happened in the later sequels that wound up getting away from the classic entries in the series. 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.

It has been quite some time since we've seen Michael Myers on screen, which was in Rob Zombie's maligned Halloween II. We're not entirely sure what "same issues" means, given that she's 40 years older and no longer a baby-sitting teenager, but we're willing to give it a shot at least.

This will be the fifth time Curtis has played Laurie in the Halloween franchise.

Production is expected to start soon on the new Halloween, so we should be hearing some more casting news soon.
