David Gordon Green is directing the project and will executive produce it with John Carpenter and Danny McBride through Rough House Pictures.

In September it was announced she would reprise her role in a reboot of the horror movie, which will be released almost 40 years to the day the original film directed by John Carpenter hit theaters.

Veteran actress Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to Haddonfield, Illinois to reprise her role as Laurie Strode in the upcoming Halloween sequel. @halloweenmovie Halloween 40 years later. "Same slate. Same Laurie", Curtis writes. It might just be a novelty, but it feels like a symbol of just how much Green and McBride revere Carpenter's first film.

The 2018 Halloween film will also star Virginia Gardner, Miles Robbins, Dylan Arnold, Drew Scheid, and Will Patton. "See you all 10/19/18 #halloweenmovie", she continued.


Returning to the Halloween franchise with Jamie Lee Curtis is quite an exciting prospect, especially since this film is ignoring all of the sequels that came after Halloween II. It features the return of Jamie Lee Curtis as Laurie Strode, while Judy Greer will play her daughter Karen and Andi Matichak will play Laurie's granddaughter.

In this installment of Halloween, Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers (Nick Castle), the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. Though that wasn't true, she was killed off in Halloween: Resurrection, which debuted back in 2002. A new Halloween movie, of course!

Green can be seen in Curtis' Instagram photo, which she captioned, "First shot". He will also be writing an entirely new soundtrack score for the movie, which will also utilize his iconic theme music.

Indeed, by the looks of its first trailer, Hereditary does appear to be incredibly unnerving and deeply unsettling; birds flying into windows, kids slamming their heads into desks, people floating into ominous-looking treehouses, bug-infested bedrooms.
