Jamie Lee Curtis to Reprise Role in New Halloween Film
Universal Pictures has announced that they will be releasing another Halloween film starring Jamie Lee Curtis.
Curtis returns 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.
Horror Legend John Carpenter will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on this film, along with cinema's current leading producer of horror, Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge, Paranormal Activity). 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. Malek Akkad will be producing under his Trancas International Films banner and Green and McBride will be executive producing under their Rough House Pictures banner.
Halloween will be released on Friday, October 19, 2018.
