Jamie Lee Curtis set to reprise iconic role in upcoming Halloween revival


Laurie Strode is back from the dead. 

Jamie Lee Curtis is set to reprise her iconic and career defining role as Lauren Strode in the upcoming Halloween revival, meaning she’ll face off against her arch-nemesis – and brother – Michael Myers once last time.

The tenth, and reportedly final film in the Halloween franchise will be released 19 October 2018, exactly 40 years after the original.

David Gordon Green will direct, with John Carpenter returning as executive producer alongside Jason Blum, whose recent credits include Insidious, Sinister, The Purge, Split and Get Out.

The former Scream Queens star uploaded a promotional photo to her Instagram and Twitter page, with the caption: “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween. Release date 10/19/18.”

But wait – wasn’t Laurie unceremoniously killed off by Michael in the first 15 minutes of 2002’s Halloween: Resurrection?

Then again, remember when she killed Michael at the end of 1997’s Halloween: H20? These two just don’t like to die do they?

The first Halloween was released in 1978, and became one of the most iconic and influential horror films of all time, and was largely responsible for the popularisation of slasher films in the 1980s.
