Curtis herself delivered the news to fans as well. She sent out the same photo to her social media pages with a caption saying, “Same porch. Same clothes. Same issues. 40 years later. Headed back to Haddonfield one last time for Halloween.”
The film will be directed b David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express) with a script co-written by Danny McBride. John Carpenter will executive produce the film along with Green and Rough House Pictures.

Curtis originated the role of Laurie Strode in the 1978 classic horror film and continued to play the role in Halloween II (1981), Halloween H20: 20 Years Later (1998) and Halloween: Resurrection (2002). Most recently, she starred on Ryan Murphy’s campy horror comedy Scream Queens which was sadly canceled earlier this year.
