2018’s version of Halloween was a success and naturally, there will be a sequel. The question is whether or not actress Jamie Lee Curtis will reprise her role as Laurie Strode. This year’s adaptation of the horror movie franchise was a direct sequel to the 1978 version, which was directed by John Carpenter’s. David Gordon Green’s version earned over $159 million a the domestic box office. While producer Jason Blum is completely on board with a sequel, Curtis commented on her stance when it came to returning:
“I have no idea at this point, today, I have no idea,” said Curtis. “I would make an assumption that, if David Gordon Green has a story to tell, that the people involved with the movie would encourage him to tell it. [Laughs] I haven’t been told whether or not he has a story to tell and whether or not he would include Laurie Strode in the telling. Really, time will tell. I know David is a busy guy.”
Curtis did add, though; that she would love to return as Laurie Strode:
“I’d be happy to do it, sure,” she said. “This was an extraordinary experience. David was a fantastic director, writer, but obviously this 2018, 40th anniversary, was Laurie’s story, and obviously there are now other people’s stories that would need to get told. But Laurie’s story was told beautifully this year, and I would have no way of knowing how they would incorporate her into future.”
Halloween 2018 will be available to watch on Digital HD December 28th and on Blu-Ray and DVD on January 15th.
