Halloween is always exciting, but not quite as exciting as a new addition to John Carpenter's Halloween franchise. Well today, horror fans get to celebrate both.
Jamie Lee Curtis, star of the original Halloween, shared a new photo from the upcoming sequel in honor of the holiday from which the franchise got its name. In the picture, Curtis is seen laying in the fallen leaves with serial killer Michael Myers, both of them staring up at the camera.
Along with the photo, Curtis tweeted out a small tease about the new movie. "SOME WOUNDS NEVER HEAL," Curtis wrote. "Michael & I will see you all next Halloween 10/19/18." She also included the hashtag, #H40, since the new sequel comes out 40 years after the original.
Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode, who took on Michael Myers in the first two Halloween films. This upcoming sequel will follow her story, 40 years later, ignoring the other films in the franchise.
John Carpenter will be executive producing Halloween, as well as composing the film's score. David Gordon Green will direct the sequel with a screenplay he wrote with David Gordon Green.
Halloween hits theaters on October 19, 2018.
