Jamie Lee Curtis Is Resurrecting Her Role In The 'Halloween' Franchise

Blumhouse has just made a very big announcement today regarding their upcoming sequel to John Carpenter's Halloween - Jamie Lee Curtis is back as Laurie Strode!

The announcement is a little confusing, considering Curtis' character seemingly died in "Halloween: Resurrection".

Yep, the original and best primary victim of Michael Myers is returning to the role that defined her career, pretty much 40 years to the day. "It's an honor to be working with this creative team to carve a new path in the tale of Michael Myers".

Early Prior to her breakout role in Halloween Curtis had bit parts on TV shows such as Quincy M.E. and Columbo

Then in 1997, Curtis did return for Halloween: H20 (which I will never not call Halloween: Water) which totally ignored movies 4-6 and established that Strode went into hiding after escaping the hospital in 1978.

The 1978 film, with its signature piano soundtrack written by director John Carpenter, has become one of the most successful horror film franchises in cinema history. Two sequels followed in that storyline, but they got progressively worse.

Set four decades after the first movie, this new film will have Curtis reprise her role as Laurie Strode for a final showdown with Michael Myers. However, this one actually might have some merit behind it, as original cast member and star of Halloween, Jamie Lee Curtis, was just announced to be returning to the franchise. The next entry in the series debuts on October 19, 2018, forty years after the release of the original. It needs no introduction at this point, and as fans will know, Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are getting ready to put their own spin on the classic. Is this over-kill, or does Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter being involved give you hope?
