Jamie Lee Curtis Is Returning to Halloween

A new Halloween movie has been in development for some time since John Carpenter’s initial announcement back in February. The Eastbound & Down dream team of Danny McBride and David Gordon Green are working on the script for the film, which will be financed by Jason Blum’s Blumhouse Productions (the studio behind this year’s runaway hit Get Out, among others), and Carpenter himself even teased that he might compose the music. And that’s not the only comeback: Blum announced yesterday that Jamie Lee Curtis’ iconic final girl Laurie Strode will be returning once again to the franchise.

It’s only been a week since Blum himself announced that “You can chop my hand off” if this movie isn’t done in time for its planned October 19, 2018 release, but it looks like he can stop worrying. Fans of the series who have made sure to watch every single installment might be a little confused that Strode is coming back, since (spoiler alert) she died at the hands of Michael Myers at the end of Halloween: Resurrection. But she looks none the worse for wear in Blum’s photo!

Besides, it’s not like Hollywood is unable to find workarounds for these kinds of things. The X-Men franchise neatly retconned the events of The Last Stand a few years ago, the new seasons of Will and Grace will pretend the last one didn’t even happen, and John Goodman’s Dan Conner is alive and well in the upcoming Roseanne revival. The Halloween chronology can spare a plot hole or two for us to see Curtis go head-to-head with that scary hockey mask again.
