News David Gordon Green Reveals Why He Needed Jamie Lee Curtis to Return for New ‘Halloween’ Published 2 years ago on October 6, 2017 By Nick Bond Share Tweet Why was it so necessary for David Gordon Green to bring Jame Lee Curtis back to Halloween? Find out in a new interview with the director himself. Just recently, Metro had the opportunity to fire some questions at Halloween director David Gordon Green, one of them being why he felt it was so necessary to bring Curtis back: “Because she is Laurie Strode (laughs). Right? I don’t know who else is going to play her?” Green continued. “She’s just really lovely, and lives and works outside the Hollywood norm. And I love her spirit. And her character is iconic.” The “Stronger” director also admitted that he sees similarities between Curtis and his leading man in the recently released drama, Jake Gyllenhaal. “She’s Jake’s godmother. It’s the same kind of thing. When I’m creating these characters sometimes I’m a movie nerd and I’ve grown up with films my entire life, and the iconic character of Laurie Strode belongs to Jamie Lee Curtis. So when I had completed a script I was confident of sharing with her I got on the phone and talked her through it, and was excited to get a call at sunrise the next day.” Jamie Lee Curtis is returning to reprise her iconic role as Laurie Strode in the next year’s Halloween. Judy Greer (Jurassic World) is in talks to play Karen, the daughter of Laurie. John Carpenter will executive produce with Malek Akkad producing for Trancas and horror specialist Jason Blum producing for Blumhouse. Gordon Green and McBride will also executive produce under their Rough House Pictures banner. Synopsis: “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.” Halloween will stalk theaters on October 19th, 2018.
