Jamie Lee Curtis to Return for 2018 'Halloween' Reboot

But with Curtis coming back to reprise her role, and Laurie evidently dealing with Michael four decades later, I'm both incorrect and puzzled.

Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to the "Halloween" franchise in a new movie due out October 19, 2018.

Blumhouse, Miramax and Trancas are the production entities involved.

Curtis hinted that this is her last go-around as Laurie, when she shared the same photo on her Twitter with the caption "Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween". Universal said the 2018 film "carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film", suggesting that it will ignore the events in the 2002 film. The character was supposedly killed off in Halloween: Resurrection, so the writers will have some explaining to do.

Also of interest: Given that Michael Myers is the older brother of Laurie Strode, that will officially make Myers a sexagenarian killer, somewhere in his 60s in this film. Her first appearance was in the classic 1978 original when the world was introduced to the mask-wearing, mental patient mass-murder, Michael Myers.

The new Halloween seems to be shaping up nicely, with filming set to begin this fall from director David Gordon Green. I was already interested in this film with Green directing and co-writing the script with Danny McBride plus John Carpenter serving as a creative consultant and executive producer. But it's also a very strong statement to everyone that that while this new Halloween is a reboot, it's also a sequel.
