Laurie Strode is back in new Halloween image, and so is her hair

Halloween Jamie Lee Curtis John Carpenter

The announcement that Jamie Lee Curtis would be reprising the role of HALLOWEEN heroine Laurie Strode in the new sequel from director David Gordon Green was accompanied by an image of the actress with the murderous Michael Myers lurking in the background. A month later, on Halloween, another image of Curtis and Myers hanging out together was released online... But as it turns out, neither of those images really showed how Curtis is going to look in the movie.

As I said yesterday, the Instagram accounts of various people involved have been the best source of information on this movie so far, and that has proven true again today. Curtis took to her social media profiles to share a picture of herself standing on the set of the new HALLOWEEN, accompanied by Green, and she looks different than she did in those other pictures. Most notably, Curtis's own short hair cut has been replaced by Laurie's longer locks.

Directed by Green from a screenplay he wrote with Danny McBride, this HALLOWEEN is ignoring every other film in the series except the 1978 original. In this one, 

Jamie Lee Curtis returns to her iconic role as Laurie Strode, who comes to her final confrontation with Michael Myers, the masked figure who has haunted her since she narrowly escaped his killing spree on Halloween night four decades ago.

Curtis is joined in the cast by Judy Greer as Laurie's daughter Karen; Andi Matichak as Karen's daughter Allyson; Miles Robbins, Virginia Gardner, Dylan Arnold, and Drew Scheid as Allyson's Haddonfield High classmates; Will Patton and Rob Niter as police officers; Rhian Rees as a character named Dana; and both original Michael Myers performer and stuntman James Jude Courtney as the iconic slasher.

Laurie Strode and Michael Myers battle it out on the big screen once again when the new HALLOWEEN reaches theatres on October 19, 2018.

The film is being produced by Blumhouse Productions and Malek Akkad. John Carpenter is executive producing and planning to compose the score.
