Halloween Movies announced today (September 15th) that Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in Halloween, released by Universal Pictures on October 19, 2018.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.
Curtis confirmed the news on her official twitter
Master of horror John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, joining forces with cinema’s current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum.
Inspired by Carpenter’s classic, filmmakers David Gordon Green and Danny McBride crafted a story that carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film, and Green also directs.
Halloween will be produced by Malek Akkad, whose Trancas International Films has produced the Halloween series since its inception.
Curtis has played Laurie Strode in multiple Halloween films. Her first appearance was in the classic 1978 original when the world was introduced to the mask-wearing, mental-patient mass-murderer Michael Myers.
She most recently appeared in Ryan Murphy‘s Fox horror comedy Scream Queens, which was cancelled in May.
