In February franchise creator John Carpenter confirmed that Pineapple Express director David Gordon Green and Danny McBride would co-write the movie. "Same issues. 40 years later", the actress, 58, tweeted on Friday, September 15, alongside a new photo of herself and masked villain Michael Myers.
Curtis took to her Twitter account this afternoon to say, "Same porch". Halloween III: Season of the Witch was an attempt to make the series something like Tales from the Crypt, with a banner title allowing for different Halloween-set horror tales, but the public loudly cried that they wanted more Michael Myers.
Fans are likely scratching their heads at this revelation, since Curtis' character was unceremoniously killed off in Halloween: Resurrection in 2002, but in true Halloween franchise fashion it would appear that the film will be ignoring the continuity of numerous sequels in favor of telling its own story. "In terms of the sequels, I think I probably lucked out and got the best I can".
Curtis' last appearance in the franchise was in 2002's "Halloween: Resurrection", in which her character was killed.
Halloween returns on 19 October 2018. Green and McBride will executive produce through Rough House Pictures, along with Zanne Devine and David Thwaites for Miramax. Because sometimes, lightning (slash, insanely scary and genius horror movies starring Jamie Lee Curtis) strikes twice.
