The New Halloween Movie Is Bringing Back Jamie Lee Curtis

The New Halloween Movie Is Bringing Back Jamie Lee Curtis

She's back! Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode in the 2018 reboot of Halloween.

The announcement is a little confusing, considering Curtis' character seemingly died in "Halloween: Resurrection".

Blumhouse, Miramax and Trancas are the production entities involved with David Gordon Green, the co-creator of HBO's Eastbound & Down and director of movies such as Pineapple Express and Our Brand Is Crisis, helming the new movie with a script co-written by him and frequent collaborator Danny McBride. "Same issues. 40 years later", the actress, 58, tweeted on Friday, September 15, alongside a new photo of herself and masked villain Michael Myers.

Unemployment dips only slightly in MA , but that's a first for 2017
US employers added 156,000 jobs overall last month, and the unemployment rate ticked up to 4.4 percent, still near a 16-year low. Indiana's total labor force is almost 3.34 million and the state had a 64.4 percent labor force participation rate.

Curtis, via her own social media account, added this statement: "Same porch".

Carpenter will return to executive produce and consult on the new film.

In that film, audiences met Michael Myers, a young boy from the fictional town of Haddonfield, Illinois, who murders his older sister on Halloween night in 1963 and is locked away in an asylum.

Martin Shkreli jailed after 'soliciting an assault' on Hillary Clinton
The Clinton offer could be viewed as "a solicitation of an assault", the judge said before revoking Shkreli's $5 million bail. They carry a maximum of 20 years in prison, though experts predict the actual sentence will likely be much less.

"Halloween" has become one of Hollywood's most famous slasher film franchises, with nine sequels and reboots over the years, the last being Rob Zombie's 2009 "Halloween II".

Laurie Strode will live to fight her brother once again.

First, take a look at the picture for yourself, and just try to see if you aren't as immediately as excited as I am. Curtis has previously appeared in four films in the series, including the 1978 original, its 1981 sequel, 1998's Halloween H20: 20 Years Later, and Resurrection. Having Jamie Lee Curtis come back is certainly a great place to start.

He holds a 5.17 road ERA in nine starts. "(Cotton) definitely had to battle through some stuff", said Melvin. In his 75.1 innings and 4-8 record this year, Gossett has a 5.02 ERA with 62 Ks and 24 BBs.

It also sounds like this new movie will simply be titled Halloween, just as the original 1978 classic was.
