Jamie Lee first represented the character, Laurie, in the original slasher film released in 1978. It was also her debut on the big screen.
The movie shot her into the stratosphere of Hollywood success and she went on to have a very successful time in the film-making business there on after. Curtis came back for Halloween II, Halloween H20, and Halloween: Resurrection.
She also had an uncredited voice role for the third Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
According to Us Weekly, the newest Halloween film will be directed by David Gordon Green who will also co-write the script with his fellow collaborator, Danny McBride.
John Carpenter – the legendary director who wrote the original screenplay as well as directed the original movie – will executive produce along with Green and McBride’s production company, Rough House Pictures.
Curtis most recent venture on the little screen was a series from Fox titled, Scream Queens. However, it was canceled after just two seasons after the show received low ratings.
The new Halloween movie will be the 11th in the franchise in total since Rob Zombie offered his take on the classic series. Zombie released his remakes of the classic horror-slasher back in August of 2007 and 2009. The remake with Jamie Lee Curtis will hit theaters on the 19th of October, 2018.
