'Halloween' Movie: Jamie Lee Curtis Set to Return To Her Iconic Role As Laurie Strode
Curtis, 58, will once again play Laurie Strode, the babysitter who faced the deadly hockey-masked serial killer Michael Myers in John Carpenter's 1978 horror "Halloween". This may confuse fans, as Laurie was killed of in 2002's Halloween: Resurrection. The plan is to have the film hit theatres in 2018 - October, to be specific - and today, in a very surprising announcement, it's been revealed that Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role of Laurie Strode. 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.
Now the newest installment into the "Halloween" franchise is not only expected to be a sequel but also a reboot of sorts.
In that film, audiences met Michael Myers, a young boy from the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois, who murders his older sister on Halloween night in 1963 and is locked away in an asylum. Blumhouse's update also confirmed that the movie's release date, which will ensure the new Halloween arrives just in time for the holiday next year. Curtis was not involved, and instead Laurie's young daughter was the target. Green is directing, and horror master John Carpenter, who co-wrote and directed the original, is executive producing with Green and McBride via their Rough House Pictures.
