Fans finally have a new look at the next film in the Halloween franchise, and it wouldn't be Halloween without Jamie Lee Curtis.
Luckily Curtis is returning
"First shot! First day. Same slate. Same Laurie. David Gordon Green directing from his script. Happy Halloween 2018 everyone. See you 10/19/18 @halloweenmovie #HalloweenMovie."

Curtis is reprising the role of Laurie Strode, and the new Halloween is being teased as her final showdown with Mike Meyers, an enemy she has been running from over the past four decades. The original film managed to build quite a sense of tension, and it's something that new writer Danny McBride is aiming to capture that original feeling.
"The original is all about tension. Laurie Strode (Jamie Lee Curtis) doesn't even know that Michael Myers exists until the last minutes of the movie," McBride told the Charleston City Paper. "So much of it you're in anticipation of what's going to happen and the dread that [director John] Carpenter spins so effortlessly in that film, I think we were really trying to get it back to that. We're trying to mine that dread. Mine that tension and not just go for gore and ultra-violence that you see some horror movies lean on."
