Well, here's a little bit of news that we definitely didn't see coming: Jamie Lee Curtis is headed back to Haddonfield one last time to reprise her role as Laurie Strode in the iconic Halloween franchise that helped to launch her career almost 40 years ago with John Carpenter's 1978 horror classic. We're not entirely sure what "same issues" means, given that she's 40 years older and no longer a baby-sitting teenager, but we're willing to give it a shot at least.
Curtis also tweeted about the news, adding, "Same porch".
John Carpenter, the co-creator of the franchise and director the 1978 original, is serving as an executive producer. "It's an honor to be working with this creative team to carve a new path in the tale of Michael Myers".
Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to star in the next installment in the Halloween film franchise.
No one knows that better than John Carpenter, who struck gold with Halloween, one of the greatest horror movies of all-time. "In terms of the sequels, I think I probably lucked out and got the best I can". She later returned for Halloween II (1981), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) and Halloween: Resurrection (2002), in addition to having a brief, uncredited voice role in Halloween III: Season of the Witch (1982). Because sometimes, lightning (slash, insanely scary and genius horror movies starring Jamie Lee Curtis) strikes twice. Not much else was revealed, but we also did get a pretty awesome new photo along with the announcement, which you can see above, in addition to confirmation that the movie will indeed be titled, Halloween.
