Apparently not though, as Curtis will be back, this time directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express, Eastbound & Down), with a script co-written by Danny McBride (who made some dramatic strides being one of the highlights in this year's Alien: Covenant).

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.

Creator and original director John Carpenter will be acting as executive producer on the film with franchise regular Malek Akkad producing.

"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".

Curtis has played Laurie Strode in multiple Halloween films from the original to Halloween: Resurrection in 2002. Much of the film is shot through the killer's visual point of view, which gives the viewer the constant and terrifying feeling that the protagonist is always being watched.

Halloween hits theaters on October 19, 2018. Halloween III: Season of the Witch was an attempt to make the series something like Tales from the Crypt, with a banner title allowing for different Halloween-set horror tales, but the public loudly cried that they wanted more Michael Myers. I had such a good cast and I got Jamie Lee Curtis back, so that's kinda' hard to beat.

Exciting news for fans of horror and of the ever fabulous Jamie Lee Curtis.

"David and Danny both came to my office recently with Jason Blum and shared their vision for the new movie and ... WOW".
