Though Curtis left the franchise after Halloween II, she was persuaded to return for 1998's Halloween H20: 20 Years Later. It is directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express), who co-wrote the script alongside Danny McBride.
Jamie Lee Curtis is playing the iconic Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise one last time. A jack o'lantern is on the porch by her feet.
As I mentioned up top, the Halloween series keeps trying to find a proper follow-up to the 1981 sequel.
No one knows that better than John Carpenter, who struck gold with Halloween, one of the greatest horror movies of all-time.
Yep, the original and best primary victim of Michael Myers is returning to the role that defined her career, pretty much 40 years to the day. Two sequels followed in that storyline, but they got progressively worse. "It's an honor to be working with this creative team to carve a new path in the tale of Michael Myers".
She's back! The upcoming Halloween reboot is really picking up some steam and now Blumhouse Productions has released some new, exciting, official details on the movie. "The only way I could do "Halloween: H20" was to agree to come back in a next movie. because of the way "Halloween: H20" ends".
Production is expected to start soon on the new Halloween, so we should be hearing some more casting news soon. Blumhouse also released a photo featuring Curtis with her on-screen, serial killer brother lurking in the background, which you can check out for yourself below.
Given that no plot details have been made available just yet, it's hard to say exactly how the character will return and what kind of role she'll play.
