Jamie Lee Cur­tis reprises hor­ror role in ‘Hal­loween’

The Philippine Star - - WORLD NEWS -

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Ac­tress Jamie Lee Cur­tis will reprise her role as the re­silient pro­tag­o­nist in 2018’s “Hal­loween,” Uni­ver­sal Pic­tures said on Fri­day, 40 years af­ter she made her movie de­but in the orig­i­nal hor­ror movie of the same name and be­came Hol­ly­wood’s “scream queen.”

Cur­tis, 58, will once again play Lau­rie Strode, the babysit­ter who faced the deadly hockey-masked se­rial killer Michael My­ers in John Car­pen­ter’s 1978 hor­ror “Hal­loween.”

The 2018 film will see Cur­tis face “her fi­nal con­fronta­tion” with My­ers, Com­cast Corp-owned Uni­ver­sal said.

“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’ last ap­pear­ance in the fran­chise was in 2002’s “Hal­loween: Res­ur­rec­tion,” in which her char­ac­ter was killed.
