"Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode in HALLOWEEN, released by Universal Pictures", Blumhouse tweeted, followed by the release date: October 19, 2018. That means this new "Halloween" film will do away with all the other canon from the "Halloween" franchise with a fresh start when the film is released in 2018.
Yes, that's right, the actress will return to the franchise for the upcoming reboot, where she'll "have her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago". Those are the Halloween fans just now reading this news!
McBride previously explained his "Halloween" is not a remake, but will "continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way". So that led, in 1988, to Halloween 4: The Return of Michael Myers, which was effectively the third part.
Curtis first played Laurie Strode in the 1978 film Halloween. "In terms of the sequels, I think I probably lucked out and got the best I can".
She also had an uncredited voice role for the third Halloween III: Season of the Witch.
And now we're getting yet another continuity rewrite. It's already been done with Strode once before, when it was revealed in Halloween: H20 that she had faked her death after the events of Halloween 2, which more or less nullified the events of Halloween 4, Halloween 5 and Halloween 6. What if he has arthritis or has bad knees? "He's gonna kill some more people".
What's your take on this?
