Forty-years after she was terrorized by the masked Michael Myers, scream queen Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to the “Halloween” franchise one final time.
The actress confirmed the news via Twitter on Friday, writing, “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.”
Set to hit theatres on Oct. 19, 2018, Curtis will return to the rebooted series as Laurie Strode for one final confrontation with Myers, the killer she escaped 40 years earlier. Original “Halloween” director John Carpenter will serve as an executive producer and consultant on the horror flick. David Gordon Green will helm the film from a script he co-wrote with frequent collaborator Danny McBride.
This isn’t the first time Curtis has signed on for a “Halloween” sequel.
After the success of the now-classic 1978 horror, Curtis returned for a sequel in 1981, made an uncredited appearance as a telephone operator in the third film, and reprised her role in “Halloween H20” in 2000 and “Halloween: Resurrection” in 2002.
