And screenwriters David Gordan Green (who is also directing) and Danny McBride are wiping every sequel from the franchise’s timeline.

Halloween 2018

Via Forbes, like a couple of retired wrestlers with an old grudge to settle, Jamie Lee Curtis is returning as Laurie Strode to this direct sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 horror classic to finally settle the score with Michael Myers (played once again by Nick Castle) in, um, Halloween. Keeping it simple I guess.

Meaning no blood connection between hunter and hunted, and the good Doctor Loomis is spared the doom of a life of a futile obsession. The life of a die-hard Star Wars fan.

Cut to the trailer:

More like Jamie Lee Curtis hunts the mask of Shat. Amirite?

“Laurie Strode comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.”

Produced by Blumhouse Productions – which has been on something of a roll with the horror genre – the film counts John Carpenter as an Executive Producer, who not only had a direct influence on Green and McBride’s take but is returning to score the film himself.

Halloween will carve a place in theaters October 19th.
