This picture can be summed up in four words: Laurie Strode is back!
In an announcement made via Twitter yesterday, Jamie Lee Curtis has signed on to return to her breakout role of Laurie Strode in the new Halloween film, which will be directed by David Gordon Green.
The new film will take away everything beginning with Halloween III: Season of the Witch and continue the events in Haddonfield, Illinois since 1982’s Halloween II, which was written by John Carpenter, who directed the original 1978 slasher film only to serve as writer and producer of the sequel. Carpenter will return to a producer capacity for the new film as well as serve as executive consultant and possibly score the film.
Green not only directs, but co-wrote the script with friend and actor Danny McBride. Curtis is the only official casting to date for the new Halloween, which will begin production this fall for an October 19, 2018 release from Miramax.
