40 years later, SHE comes home.
MASSIVE news to end the week as Blumhouse has dropped the bombshell that Jamie Lee Curtis will return as iconic heroine Laurie Strode in David Gordon Green’s Halloween! With the news, an amazing photo teases the highly unexpected return.
The reveal was made on Twitter, where Blumhouse also confirmed that Universal Pictures will release the film, simply titled Halloween, on October 19, 2018.
“Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween,” Jamie Lee Curtis tweeted.
Gordon Green’s Halloween looks to continue the story from the first two (original) Halloween movies, presumably ignoring all the rest.
Set to begin shooting this Fall, the film was written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. Last we heard, John Carpenter may provide the score.
Carpenter will executive produce the new film with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner.
