One of the scariest films in history is Halloween, which follows the murderous spree of Michael Myers, a man who escapes a mental hospital. It is the film debut of Jamie Lee Curtis, granting her the status of scream queen for her run in horror films. Now, there’s going to be a remake of Halloween and Curtis is returning!
Curtis said that she will be reprising her role as Laurie Strode, 40 years after the events of the first film. There’s no word on what it will be about, but it has been said that it will pick up where Myers left off in 1978.
Danny McBride, who wrote the script for the sequel, told Entertainment Weekly: “We just love that original Halloween. There’s something so scary about how simple it was. I had seen all the Halloween films. We really were studying all the sequels and stuff, just to see where it exactly it went wrong. It definitely kind of felt that, as the series went on, Michael Myers became like Frankenstein and he was like indestructible and I think the more indestructible he was, the less scary he became. And so David and I, our ambition is to strip it down and get it back to [being] grounded in reality, which I think makes it scarier.”
The sequel will be released on October 19, 2018.
