9/15 Jamie Lee Curtis To Star In 'HALLOWEEN' Reboot

We this is a bit of a surprise, Jamie Lee Curtis has confirmed, via twitter - that she will indeed return to iconic role that made her famous as Laurie Strode in Blumhouse's upcoming reboot of HALLOWEEN! The film is set to land in theaters October 19, 2018..

David Gordon Green will direct from a script he co-written with Danny McBride.. John Carpenter is returning to the franchise as executive produce.. The project is being produced By: Malek Akkad and Jason Blum..

Back in May writer Danny McBride appeared on Jim Norton & Sam Roberts podcast.. In the interview he talked a little bit about the new upcoming Halloween flick..

"It’s not a reboot, it’s not gonna be a rehash. It’s a continuation of Michael Myers – where we’re choosing to continue it from, you’ll have to see when the movie comes out. I’d already seen all these movies but I’ve really been studying them now, and just thinking about all the people that have been hired to make a Michael Myers movie. Just trying to avoid any mistakes that those people might’ve made.

The first Halloween is scary as shit. And the second Halloween is scary, but not as scary. And then from there, it isn’t as scary. And I really think that what happens with it is that he basically becomes Frankenstein. No matter what anyone hits him with, he’s not gonna die. There’s no suspense.

We’re just trying to play with that. Make him real. Not make him real by giving him some crazy backstory either. Just getting back to the basics. Even the moment that they made Laurie and Michael Myers siblings – it also makes it not quite as scary. So all that kind of stuff to us… those are the things that took an amazing idea and took it somewhere it wasn’t quite as effective."
