Jamie Lee Curtis returns to where it all began forty years ago with Halloween, back as Laurie Strode, this time for director David Gordon Green where this film is aÂ direct sequel to the 1978 classic that ignores the events of the films subsequently released.
A new image of Jamie Lee Curtis has been released withÂ Judy Greer who plays Karen Strode.
â€śThe first movie I was running more, and in this movie Iâ€™m hunting more,â€ť Curtis revealed to EW.com. â€ś[You] watch this woman take back the narrative of her life.â€ť
It's also been revealed that this version of Halloween removed the brother and sister relationship between Laurie Strode and Michael Myers.
"I was pushing for that removal right off the bat," director David Gordon Green told IGN. "I just felt like that was an area where he wasnâ€™t quite as scary anymore. It seemed too personalized. I wasnâ€™t as afraid of Michael Myers anymore because Iâ€™m not his f--king brother so heâ€™s not coming after me. And also youâ€™ve seen it, so wouldnâ€™t it be interesting just to see what would happen if it wasnâ€™t that, and what does that open up for us if it [was] this random killing that has affected this character? So it just seemed like new territory to bite off."
HalloweenÂ has a Friday, October 19, 2018 release. Watch the trailer below.
Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role 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.
