Jamie Lee Curtis is coming back to recreate her role as the legendary character, Laurie Strode, in the reboot of Halloween that's coming up in 2018. The actress, who is one of Hollywood's original scream queens, first made her appearance as Laurie Strode in 1978's Halloween (which also marked her debut movie role).

John Carpenter - the legendary director who wrote the original screenplay as well as directed the original movie - will executive produce along with Green and McBride's production company, Rough House Pictures.

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

For her part, Curtis says that this will be her last time heading to Haddonfield, the setting of the original Halloween. This may confuse fans, as Laurie was killed of in 2002's Halloween: Resurrection.

Curtis first played Laurie Strode in the 1978 film Halloween. 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. Plus, this new installment will have to answer a lot of questions (cuz like, um, isn't Michael Myers totally already dead?). But it's also a very strong statement to everyone that that while this new Halloween is a reboot, it's also a sequel. It's being written by Danny McBride and David Gordon Green with Green directing. That means this new "Halloween" film will do away with all the other canon from the "Halloween" franchise with a fresh start when the film is released in 2018. Because sometimes, lightning (slash, insanely scary and genius horror movies starring Jamie Lee Curtis) strikes twice.
