Jamie Lee Curtis will play Laurie Strode in 'Halloween' one last time

Jamie Lee Curtis will play Laurie Strode in 'Halloween' one last time

The Laurie Strode character was unceremoniously killed off in "Halloween: Resurrection" back in 2002, which the new movie will apparently ignore.

The Blumhouse production company tweeted the news on Friday, saying, "Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN". The show paid homage to horror tropes and featured Curtis alongside a new generation of "scream queens", including Emma Roberts, Ariana Grande, Billie Lourd, and Abigail Breslin. Same clothes. Same issues.

Although it has been 15 years since Curtis's last Halloween film, she hasn't been a stranger to horror. The death of slasher icon Michael Myers was also implied in H20, only to be undone in the opening moments of Resurrection. Why can't Laurie be, as well?

The original film's director, John Carpenter, will executive produce and serve as creative consultant on the new movie, which comes from David Gordon Green and Danny McBride. "David and I are coming from it as, we are horror fans, and we are big fans of John Carpenter and of what he did with the original Halloween, so I think from watching this and being disappointed by other versions of this series, I think we're just trying to strip it down and just take it back to what was so good about the original". Jason Blum's Blumhouse Productions (Get Out, Paranormal Activity, Insidious, The Purge) is the studio backing the project.

Curtis is a talented actress and definitely belongs in the Halloween franchise.

Of course, we'll have to wait until next October to find out for sure, or at least for the first trailer to drop so we can unfairly start speculating.
