Jamie Lee Curtis Will Return to Haddonfield

Jamie Lee Curtis recently gave horror fans an early Halloween present with her confirmation of her role in the new, upcoming Halloween film.

The Scream Queen made the announcement on her Twitter page with a caption that read: “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.” The tweet was complete with a masked Michael Myers standing behind her in the doorway, looking menacing as ever.

This new Halloween film is a joint project between Danny McBride and David Gordon Green – both huge fans of the original and looking to recapture what thrilled fans many years ago. McBride spoke with EW Radio’s Entertainment Weirdly about the their vision for the film:

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.

Get ready to go back to Haddonfield on October 19, 2018.
