Jamie Lee Curtis has confirmed she's coming back to Halloween

'Halloween' Movie: Jamie Lee Curtis Set to Return To Her Iconic Role As Laurie Strode

The new Halloween will be written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green, with the latter slated to direct.

The original Scream Queen who starred in the 1978 original and several sequels, is returning to her roots as heroine Laurie Strode, sister of Michael Myers.

The actress will reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the Halloween franchise in 2018. The movie has been slow to develop since it was announced back in February, and just this week super-producer Jason Blum vowed to let his hand be chopped off if fans didn't get the new movie by next October. "40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween". There have been a ton of Halloween sequels and reboots over the years - including Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Halloween: Resurrection, both of which also featured Jamie Lee Curtis and were met with pretty ho-hum reviews. Universal said the 2018 film "carves a new path from the events in the landmark 1978 film", suggesting that it will ignore the events in the 2002 film.

IPhone 8 and 8 Plus have smaller batteries than last year's models
Likewise, the iPhone 8 Plus comes equipped with 3GB of RAM, equaling the amount in its predecessor and the new iPhone X . On the other hand, the iPhone X stats at $999 for 64GB and will cost you a whopping $1,149 if you want 256GB of storage .

Curtis' character will have a final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago. The series then rebooted with Rob Zombie at the helm and Scout Taylor-Compton taking over the role of Laurie in Zombie's Halloween and Halloween II. It's actually, it's gonna continue the story of Michael Myers in a really grounded way.

Curtis also tweeted about the news, adding, "Same porch". Is this over-kill, or does Jamie Lee Curtis and John Carpenter being involved give you hope?
