Throughout the Halloween franchise, viewers learn that Michael and Laurie are siblings but that notion is erased with one line in the trailer.
Original mastermind John Carpenter will be back as an executive producer and creative consultant on the flick, teaming up with producer Jason Blum (Get Out, Split, The Purge) to revive it for modern audiences.
Curtistold Coming Soon that the new film, set for release on October 19, "stylistically, characterologically, visually, emotionally. follows very similar themes but it's its own movie so it's a very clever mash-up, to use a young people's word, of the first movie in a retelling like a direct sequel but it's fascinating".
Watch it below, but make sure you keep the lights on.
John Carpenter'sHalloween is a classic horror flick, expertly ratcheting up the tension. As it turned out, the pitch Blumhouse and Carpenter were most impressed with came from David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.
After making her screen debut as Laurie Strode in Halloween in 1978, Curtis went on to appear in its 1981 sequel and also had roles in 1983's Halloween III: Season of the Witch (voice only, uncredited), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) and Halloween: Resurrection (2002). The horror icon is going head-to-head with deranged killer Michael Myers in the latest movie in the "Halloween" franchise. Second, Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) is officially not related to Michael Myers-they are not siblings, and "that's something people made up".
Following the banter of Strode's daughter Karen (Judy Greer) and granddaughter Allyson (Andi Matichak) regarding the brutal attack and the long-lasting effects it's had the Strode family, Curtis' character then reveals that she's "prayed every night that he would escape" so she could kill him. "I've waited for him", she adds.
Green's frequent collaborator, Danny McBride, is a co-writer of "Halloween".
