Jamie Lee Curtis Is Resurrecting Her Role In The 'Halloween' Franchise

Jamie Lee Curtis Is Resurrecting Her Role In The 'Halloween' Franchise

Now the newest installment into the "Halloween" franchise is not only expected to be a sequel but also a reboot of sorts.

"Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later", the actress, 58, tweeted on Friday, September 15, alongside a new photo of herself and masked villain Michael Myers.

Horror fans can expect to be scared silly by the series one last time just over a year from now.

Also of interest: Given that Michael Myers is the older brother of Laurie Strode, that will officially make Myers a sexagenarian killer, somewhere in his 60s in this film.

The movie shot her into the stratosphere of Hollywood success and she went on to have a very successful time in the film-making business there on after. That movie-which is very good, it has to be said-was followed by a frigging bad entry called Halloween: Resurrection, which opened with Laurie in a mental hospital and having her third (!) final confrontation with her brother.

Blumhouse has revealed that Jamie Lee Curtis will be starring in Halloween as her original character, Laurie Strode, which they've dated for October 19, 2018!

Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the series since its inception, is producing with Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions and Miramax. However, it was canceled after just two seasons after the show received low ratings.

The new Halloween movie will be the 11th in the franchise and the first since Rob Zombie's remakes, which were released in August 2007 and August 2009. He first announced that the film was being made back in February.
